|Garritan have been "tight lipped" as well about their new products... supposedly a choral library, and a new string library. They've had their customers waiting in darkness for years now, with not a peep from anyone official.|

Fritz has a good point. I was thinking more along the lines of new technology behind the coding (which itself might then enable the support of new features and improved stability).
Well the exact quote was : "We are excited about the updated features and improved functionality that our annual product upgrades will offer to our target markets. Due to the extent of the updates to the technological infrastructure for Finale 2012, this year’s update will be released in the Fall, which is later than our typical release timeframe."
My initial thoughts about "updates to the technological infrastructure" was similar to yours as I have long suspected that they were being seriously held back by being tied to a cross-platform development system which was not being updated. I don't know what they use, but I'm assuming that, for instance, the number of years it took to get access to a basic modern windows feature like the mouse scroll wheel could only be the result of a development system problem, rather than their own programming. My wish list would be something along the lines of switching to a new development system and rearchitecting the whole program to get rid of those bits of ancient gnarly code that underlie everything but which no-one wants to touch for fear of breaking them (my interpretation of why old, old fundamental bugs never get fixed). However, all that gets you is a program which works and is maintainable, not sexy new features, so I'd actually have to say that I don't know what to expect.
Isn't it fun rumour-mongering in the total absence of facts ?

|I'm still using Finale 2008 (starting with 2.2 on 2 floppies I think)|
It does almost everything I want it to I guess...
mind, I still use XP too!
Ha ha, maybe I'm just getting old :)
