MASH 2.0 released

I've only played a little with MASH but I liked what I could see so far.. It looks like they've added a little bit more functionality, and stability in the next release.
and with that comes  a new price  £89.99

if you haven't played with it, I highly recommend checking out the tutorials and downloading the trial version.   ( its not ice for maya, but it does do a lot of cool procedurally node based setups)
