Have read some small things and was looking forward to the time/pitch stretching function with two algorithms and knew that there was going to be a new synthesizer in this version coming.
But this upgrade is definitively going to be much more than that!
Okay so not to be too excited yet as it is just in early Alpha and there will bugs to work through and it will probably take some time before the official release.
There is some very interesting options here and maybe one of the coolest things to me is the possibility to use multiple instruments/racks and generate a combined sample instrument.
This together with the modular (remember that you can also route audio into the modular) will make Caustic a endless source of sound design. And yes the Sampler will now be stereo sample capable.
Well better that you read the list and grok the possibilities of what will come:
New "melody helper" to lock keyboards to scales
Support for more time signatures (3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/4, 7/4) from the song page and in pattern editors
Allow for multi-signature tracks by unlocking measure snap in sequencer
