05/09/2005: "LightWave 8.3 update released; NewTek finally fixed documentation for Edges"

I'd had the correct rules of Edges posted on this site for years, but most LightWave artists first read the manual when they want to understand Edges. However, the LightWave manual has always had either non-technical or flat-out wrong descriptions of Edges, and the LightWave 8.0 manual was exceptionally bad in its Edges documentation.

Happily, NewTek took steps to correct the manual when the problem was brought to their attention. In addition to fixing a slew of bugs with the LightWave 8.3 update, they have included an electronic addendum to the manual that documents the correct technical rules of Edges. This update to the manual should take a lot of the frustration out of learning Edges.
