The Foundry has a new version of NUKE, with a huge range of updates on features including a new Text node that lets artists compose, edit and animate directly in the viewer. There's also a huge update to the Dope Sheet that gives artists powerful timeline viewing of scripts. In addition NUKE 8.0 features a new intelligent in-context help system as well as a range of artist friendly colour controls including: an intuitive in-panel Colour Wheel, new Match Grade node (exclusive to NUKEX), a Pixel Analyser and Scopes for viewing the most detailed levels of colour data.
There are plenty of further points covered on their page created for the release, (link below) covered thoroughly at IBC as well.
