When could we have the last Max 8 build in Live ...?

Hi there,
I found no where else to ask that question :

when could we have the last Max 8 build in Live ...?

Actually, I'm tempted by replacing my Max 8 in the package content of Live application (I'm on OSX) by the one I upgraded but ... that's not safe, obviously.

If I own Live 10 Suite and I want to use the latest version of Max 8, what should I do?
In a future version of Live 10 Suite, this will not be required. Currently, you must download and install Max 8, then go through these steps to set it as the Max for Live Editor within Live 10.

Close Live
Open a Finder window, then click the Go menu at the top of the screen, holding down the Alt/Option key to show the hidden user library
Go to /Users/[username]/Library/Preferences/Ableton/Live 10.0.4/
In this folder, create a plain text file called 'Options.txt'
Using plain text formatting, write the following (including the hyphen): -AllowExternalMax
Restart Live and you will now have the option to select your version of Max again.

L10.0.4 has just been released and since this version you don't need to use the options.txt option anymore as the ability of defining a custom path for the Max application in Live's preferences has been reintroduced.
Have fun!

Nope.
Live will bundled the latest Max in a (near) future version.
