We need a general (non-specific) topic area for news, etc.

(Hey Lori! Could we get a general MD topic area for the forum. We can copy this message there, if you decide to add such an area.)
I wanted to let people know that MD has announced a tentative release date for MD5... in September.
List of planned new features:

1. Cut Pattern
Cutting patterns in 2D is now available. Discover your creativity with this pattern cutting feature.

2. Offset as Internal Line
Input specific measurements to offset patterns and segments as Internal Lines

3. Fold Arrangement
Fold seam allowance, collars, and cuffs in the 3D Window before Simulation is activated.

4. Direct Positioning
Use the Direct Positioning tool to easily arrange patterns and OBJs on the Avatar and garment.

5. Sewing Line Type
Apply the Turned Sewing Line Type setting to achieve a folded, two-ply look.

6. Side Geometry
Apply and adjust the curvature of pattern edges, and/or express hems with facing.

7. Align
Align point, lines to the vertical (X) and horizontal (Y) axis.

8. Round Corner
Round Corner performs the rounding of the edges and corners of 3D shapes along a 2D profile

9. UV Guidelines
UV Guidelines can be displayed and it lets you view and interactively edit the UV.

10. Avatar Size Measurement
There are two methods to obtain the avatar’s length measurement. The Basic Length Measurement method takes a straight measurement, while the Surface Length Measurement method takes a measurement by following the curves of the avatar’s surface. A Height Measurement function, that takes the avatar’s height measurement from the avatar’s height and the ground, is also provided.

11. Coordinate Gizmo
Coordinate Gizmo in Select, Move, Rotate mode.

12. Import Camera in FBX format
You may import camera in FBX format.
