Rhino 5 upgrade

Yesterday I ordered the upgrade to 5.0. I have been using 5.0 beta for months on a 64-bit machine and it is much faster than my 4.0, which ran in the 32-bit mode. You notice the 64-bit speed advantage right away if you rotate a big, highly detail object in 3-space.

One drawback is that my favorite 4.0 plug-in, Auxpecker, will not run in 5.0. This means that in order to quickly render a project using Auxpecker, I save the 5.0 file in a 4.0 format -- then open it in 4.0 and proceed with the rendering. Usually this is a last step.

Glad 5.0 will finally see daylight.

Michael
