I think the reason why it's taking so long is that Live 8.4 is meant to have both a 64-bit and a 32-bit version, in which case they could be holding off until 64-bit support for Max for Live and .mov files is ready - I think both were mentioned as functions that do not currently work in the 64-bit version.

live 9 - 64bits is still on the wait like 8.4beta.

Don't forget Max 6.1 64bits is not completed yet, thus slowing other developpements, I suppose.
Don't worry, they are working hard on both live 8 and live 9.

Remember they updated live 7 to 7.0.16 then 7.0.18 for launchpad and apc 40-20 usability.

Be cool and be ready for a workflow boost in 2013 :lol:

I hope so. I'm dying to load it onto my new workstation, but I see too many bug reports related to my use cases still. I need a working ready to go version before we transfer things to that machine.

Yes, the beta is, as is the 8.4 beta, but the actual release probably won't happen before Max for Live is also 64-bit.

Hmm, still not understanding what you're saying. In the Live 9 FAQ on the main site it says: Live 9 will be released and downloadable in the first quarter of 2013. It will come with 32-bit and 64 bits installers for the same price.

That's it.
I wasn't saying live 9 64bits is not on the testing fire :wink:
