Just saw a post on the next Revit release and things look promising! Revit will apparently look more like Rhino (background gradients etc.) and will also get better 3D modeling capabilities. Even a paneling tool will be included (see image above). For the rest, read the post at Revit ArchCenter. You can find some more reviews at AEC Bytes or here.
I guess, my only frustration will be the horizontal toolbar ribbon again that now finally killed the admittedly a bit outdated Revit user interface. You can see a video overview of the ribbon here.
Consistent with their annual software release cycle, we will still have to wait until April for this new version.
