It will be distributed to nebula server owners only, because they could pissed off because they paid for something wich now works very well also in normal nebula (for example people bought server even using a x64 daw). And Mac osx users: they paid for server and localserver is not too much optimized, this new version outperforms it without the server component (especially if they are not running snow leopard) So the optimization will be adopted only in nebula server release until we improve the server adding some other new exciting features.
So Nebula3 Server will be based on a different engine we'll name Core3.
nebula2, nebula3 -> CoreI (no optimizations) nebula3 pro -> CoreII (cached vectorial engine) nebula3 server -> Core3 (cached vectorial engine, shared memory)
Not an emergency, but when you get a moment could you explain the optimization of CORE3?
It was stated on another forum that users with a single machine on my host wouldn't benefit so much from the server product. Does Core3 change that?

Giancarlo, how's the cpu optimization on OSX? When I tested the free server version, the ram-distribution is awesome, but it used so much cpu, it was ridiculous; about triple the amount of cpu than Nebula Pro 3. So is this version for snow leopard also cpu-optimized as well as ram?

hmmm ... this is VERY interesting development!
I'm currently running NEB3-PRo. I am going to expand my system to include the server version. But the first question :
My present workstation is a PC running XP-Pro [32-bit]. Along the same line of question that 'ngarjuna' raised: Would the ram optimization be usable with my current [single] system
If so ... I'd happily upgrade to the server version. The plan [once new ControlRoom is operational] is to bump up to Win7 - 64bit, and then add some type of external server. I could use the Ram OPT even now. Should I pull da trigger and go server now ?!?!?
cached vectorial engine is the feature already implemented in neb 3 pro yes to your first question, it's already in betatesting. Neb 3 client implements ram sharing even without a server component. Same cpu load as nebula, less ram usage.To be fair, slighly less cpu load too. We'll support ipp 7 too, current version is 5.3, so I expect further improvements
