What is plan for Finale upgrades?

This has probably been asked already: Finale 2012 is the latest version currently available. Are more upgrades in the pipeline?

According to MakeMusic officials, there will be a new Finale version this year.

They will tell us more as soon as they have permission to do so.

Thank you Peter. Hoping they'll spend time with the "Wishlist" comments.

You should be aware that

1) The new Finale version is in the final stages of development.
This means that new feature requests made now probably will become postponed until the next Finale version (which may be released in 2015?).

2) This forum is not monitored by MakeMusic.
In the Wishlist section here Finale users can discuss their wishes for the next Finale versions.
But a formal feature request should be made via the Tech Support web pages on MakeMusic's own web site.

Thanks for the info. I have no special requests for now, based on the projects I've established. However it's peculiar that MakeMusic would ignore an obvious resource for learning the thinking & experience of Finale's actual users. A mystery. Perhaps they'll consider at least an occasional look at this forum's Wishlist. Otherwise, what's the point of having it?
