I believe this is going to help achieve better rendings from users who don't have the time to implement sophisticated lighting work arounds and enable to us to get more from simpler geometric models. A big help in bringing casual users into the fold.
3.08: Major update is OSL (Open Shading Language) shaders, final test build should be ready by next week (Week 7)
3.09: Mostly about AI denoiser, can reduce 20,000 samples to just 200 samples in a best-case scenario; beta in users' hands by February. The denoiser has access to Octane buffers even before going out to the render passes; can check for material roughness, subpixel arrangement, etc., to incorporate all the relevant data into the denoising algorithm
3.10: Minor release, mainly bug fixes
V4 = Octane merged with Brigade (game engine API) scene graph, "load times just go away", preview/announcement at GTC. "I don't want Octane to be anything but unbiased -- -- but if we were to look at biased rendering at all, it's all about real-time, 120 FPS in VR. With V4, you do have the ability to do RT dynamic stuff."

I am getting very different render pass result for Reflections and Transmission between Octane 3.07 vs 3.08 / 4.0 version. I have documented it in another thread - viewtopic.php?f=44&t=69238&p=348803#p348803 . As a result my materials are rendering differently in the 2 versions. May I know what settings in Diffuse / glossy / specular nodes can I change to make it render like it did with 3.07 ? I tried the different BDRF modes, etc. But none produced the kind of reflections I was getting in 3.07. The test images in the other post are at 10,000 samples.
I am using Octane via the Daz Studio plugin.
Thanks and regards,

The screenshots of 3.07 which you posted also contain a lot of fireflies. I think this was also an issue that got fixed in 3.08, but I would need to check, since it has been a while...
So the render passes in 3.08 it should be an improvement over version 3.07, which was simply incorrect.
