Finally, in the second half of 2018 I want to show you a prototype of a new tool for creating landscapes. I can't say any more yet; you will just have to wait and see! :)

About the landscaping tool.... :3

Yes.... I really wanna see what this is about  :)

Is there a "Plan for 2019" announcement in the works?  ;)  Just curious what we might expect for the year as far as new features etc.

Terragen 4.4 will be about getting path tracing “out of beta”, introducing subsurface scattering, and big speed improvements for clouds. Following 4.4, releases will focus on the rest of the items from the 2018 plan.
Just because milk is white doesn't mean that clouds are made of milk.

Sounds awesome. I'm using TG heavily now for our commercial work again, producing environments for real world air-to-air shots, and it's simply stunning how TG's atmosphere and clouds match all the real world photography we get, v3 clouds were a huge step for me. Looking forward to any speed improvements!

The only other thing that I *really* wish would happen in 2019 is an improved frame buffer. Correct 100% viewing at all sizes, interactive  - as in without the need to re-render - exposure, contrast, tone mapping, light temperature parameter (!), bloom/glare etc. That would improve working with TG by a magnitude. Anyway, looking forward to anything you come up with.
