When can I expect to see the next version of Final Cut Express?

A friend of mine was interested in editing his own videos for hosting them later on the web, and I was wondering if it would be wise for him to buy Final Cut Express 4 now or wait?

    Can he wait until May or June?



    If I were to hazard a guess I'd say probably the April-May timeframe. Apple's not going to exhibit at NAB this year so I don't expect any updates then but Q2 sounds like a good time to announce the nextgen Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express. If iMovie '09 is any indication of where Apple is going i'd look for a revamped UI but not too drastic. I'd expect realtime features to be extensive and project management to take a bit leap forward. I'm curious to see where Soundtrack Pro 3 is going to go as well. Hell while Apple is feeling giving why don't they toss in Logic Express as well? Hehehehe.

    Well, he may have to until he gets the extra cheese, which may work in his favor if the next version could be coming so soon.
