  • Flipbook / Mplay: It should be able to create directories by its own while saving.
  • Attribute Wrangle: Quick preview of function arguments while typing.
  • A reliable and responsive way to stop a running simulation at the next frame. (Without killing the cache, crashing, etc.)

Add surface tension(+adhesion) against collision as well for nice small scale fluid sims.

When should 18 come out? 

Short answer... Soonish, around their typical Halloween time period. There is no announced date.

Long answer... SideFX typically releases at three different points in the year around Fall, Winter and Summer, closely tied to Halloween, a month before GDC, and at Siggraph. On average with a minor release a major.minor version release cycle last about 200+ days. A little more than 7 Months+, with a few exceptions that are notable due to the technology they release in those non-average years. So theoretically we could see a 18.# at Siggraph based on those trends, or if they have some cool stuff that was not ready to release around GDC. This is what happened to TOPs the last release cycle, almost but not quite ready for 17.0 but big enough to garner it's own minor version. The farther out it gets harder to predict because there is a +/- of a few months. Plus even though we are in a period of major and minor .5 releases they don't need to follow that in the long run. We due know from Siggraph that the next one would be H18. Also there has never been another minor release number besides .1 and .5. For a side project I had Houdini analyze Houdini for these trends.
