    ...was released last night. I've barely scratched the surface, but it looks pretty slick.

    Coooooooooooool. Will need to look into this. Also, I think my license might not be good for 6 anymore....

    Just checked...was on 5.70 and tried it, but apparently I'm done after 5.99....gonna have to read some reviews and see if I need this and then reup my license.

    FWIW, my main 3 themes were completely unaffected, so all of your guys' should work as well...

    FWIW a license is good for two full release cycles. I bought mine in 3.x and again in 5.x so I was good for 6.x but when we go from 6.99 to 7.x I'll need to buy a new license. If you buy one today, you'll be covered through 7.99 but with the release of 8.0 you'll need a new license. I don't remember how long ago they released 5.0 - google suggests Sept 2015, though, so if you extrapolate forward another 6-7 years of updates for a license bought today seems reasonable.

    Interface is a lot cleaner looking and less dated but still looks like Reaper which is nice. I only messed around for a few minutes on my work laptop. Interface looks less like something from 2005 now

    Yes, but it's never a bad idea to back your stuff up anyways.

    Liking everything so far with the exception of the Pan Knobs. With the new default theme, I need to fully extend the mixer window to show the plugins and sends before the pan knob is visible, and I have like two projects where it doesn't show up at all in the track view (down the left side) no matter how tall/wide I expand the track view. The mixer pan knob thing is consistent on all my projects, but the track pan knob thing is only on a few projects, with no real comment elements I can discern.

    As usual, the Reaper blog has a few videos recap of what's new with version 6. I'd start there; there is some neat stuff, but as usual with Reaper you have to know where to find it.
