    I expect there to be a blog post about that soon, maybe already tomorrow or next week.

    The blog posts usually come at the beta start, not at the alpha start, which can take a little longer. But there isn't even a blog post about 2022.2

    When you are right you are right. Kind of sad there is nothing so far.

    We'll probably get a roadmap at Unite 2022 I suspect.

    I'm interested in raytracing/pathtracing improvements
    Especially around spawning thousands of objects such as grass and trees, WITH branch, leaf animation....

    ....for offline rendering

    @LeonhardP could you bring 2023.1 builds faster if possible. For example, every week one build. That would result in faster release of official 2023.1.

    Why or how would this make the final release faster?

    To speed up development of 2023. If builds are postponed, wouldn't that delay final release?

    They build Unity continuously probably with a CI/CD pipeline. They only release public alpha/beta builds after a significant amount of bugs are fixed/addressed and new features are ready to be tested (publicly) according to their internal roadmap. If they would give us new public builds at an increased frequency they would just contain less fixes/new features and not contribute to a quicker release?

    What would it take Unity to have bigger momentum and acceleration in development?

    Releasing builds every week won't make development faster nor will it make final version release earlier.

    More money? An office support dog? Fixing the broken coffee machine? Let's make it happen!

    Slow and steady actually produces more momentum and acceleration. The only thing is, and this is the big secret that every billionaire CEO doesn't want you to know... is that you should not keep changing your mind and redirecting resources every quarter.

    Funny how seeing a thing through yields amazing results.
