    My sources tell me that Toast 8 Titanium will be shipping on the 4th of Janurary 2007 (Worldwide) and will include support for Blu-Ray, DivX 6.4 and over 5 other new formats!
    PLUS
    *Built from the ground up as a Universal Application
    *Will have over 100 improvements (Mostly behind the scenes)
    *Will have over 10 new features

    It will probably be Roxio's main focus at Macworld San Francisco 07.

    Hope this helps you with your buying plans :)

    If you dont need the extra features, then the Apple Online Store has upto 20% off on Toast 7 Titanium (ive checked the US and UK stores)

    Pre-Order
    USA
    Buy.com

    Cool. Let's hope it can finally burn good-quality DVDs directly from EyeTV rather than me having to go through the export as elementary streams, re-mux in ffmpegx and burn as data UDF nonsense :rolleyes:

    Ive contacted Roxio for an official list of features and an offical ship date.

    Although i believe my source to be legit, i would like more information on the features.

    I will be waiting for this as it would be a nice thing this new year to have as well as iLife '07 :D :D I hope Popcorn2 will be in there as well if it hasn't been updated in awhile.

    I wonder if this release will support HD-DVD, and when we will see some inexpensive High-Def burners that are 100% compatible with mac :)

    Popcorn 2 is available now, and has been for a long while now. :)

    I just bought Toast 7 Titanium at Amzaon. I picked the free shipping; so it has not yet shipped. I guess I need to cancel this.

    Update: I was able to cancel the order for Toast 7. I was lucky to find this thread today.

    Yeah, good thing, I hate it when I buy a product and it gets updating very soon after. Like when I bought my 3rd gen iPod and the 4th gen was released two weeks later :mad:

    I stopped at 6.xx with the use of DU and a superdrive, but will probably take a serious look at the 8 upgrade.

    Yeah I was looking at it since some have said it's better than what comes with Toast 7 for a few reasons ;) side note: Toast sure has come a long way and I can't wait to see what's next/new :D

    I've pretty much given up toast 7 altogether for Burn at this point, but I might have to give the new version a test spin.

    Great news, I've always loved the Toast app and have owned it since version 6, along with Jam. I'll check out the specs a bit further and see if it will be worth upgrading to or no for my current needs. :cool:

    I read on a video forum that it has better manual settings and that if you don't like DVD2oneX it's a nice choice. I have DTOX and just use it for the very basic intent of compressing but it's really what has the most features at this time.
    That said, since I have an Intel iMac I would need to upgrade to the new DTOX if I wanted to take advantage of any performance increases. They seem to cost the same (depending upon currency) but as far as features go I'm not 100% sure, I've been out of that picture for some time now :eek:

    $100. Ouch. Anyone know where to get it cheaper? I can't buy from the Apple US/UK stores.

    Obviously it depends how much of Toast's functionality you utilize, but trust me, it's definitely worth it. I don't like paying for overpriced software myself (a lot of MS software, as an example) but in this case, Toast is well worth the money IMO.

    But, I use it extensively - if you're wanting it just to burn discs, create disc images and other simple functions, then OS X's free built-in Disk Utility will probably suit all your needs just fine. :cool:

    Yeah, if you only burn simple disks, like music from itunes ect, then its best to stay with the built in software.
