Ok so to resume:

1. V2 can get slower up to about 50% depending on how heavy a scene is.
2. It can converge faster to noise free in some cases.
3. Still no undo function, despite being promised.
4. Slow development still..
5. Limited Network Rendering
6. Poor Manual....
7. Price increase of 100 euros per version. So on V10 it will cost 1000 euros?

8. Did I miss anything?

The good thing is that if you don't like it you don't have to buy it, we're not forcing you. How awesome is that?

But people invest time in a product as well & have to keep up with time / technology.

If that is the case V2 is slower then V1.5 then price should be decreased not increased.

THE WHOLE POINT OF OCTANCE RENDER WAS SPEED.

No, I didn't try hair yet, but soon I will.

Man, truly they owe you nothing — it was our choice (yours, mine, all others) to invest our time and money to this product. We're not stockholders, OTOY investors etc. We're just buying it as is (and hope that it will get better — and it gets for me). Or we not. That simple. Peace. :)

Perhaps you're not aware that Octane is one of the most reasonably priced renderers out there - still.

I didn't say I like it or I didn't like it. Anyhow things would be nicer if people used anything else as justification apart from like/dislike + money.

Anyhow if speed for now is up to 50% down, then when other features get added in guess what will happen? I guess V3 will be released next year with even more stuff.
