WaveLab 8 and Elements 8 will be available in May 2013!
And yes, there is a new manual, renewned in-app help system, and in total 150+ new
A major GUI change will happen probably with the next version, however if WL 7 is opened next
to WL 8 you will notice a clear refinement on the graphics side.
While there are tools and functions also available in Nuendo 6, for instance, WaveLab 8 can
not only do loudness metering, but also processing to an individual target scale (or standard
EBU), which is not possible in Nuendo 6. Also, typical mastering tools such as high-quality
dither, Meta data inclusion, updated Batch processing considering EBU standards, high-res
zooming for editing, SuperClips for making large session handling easy (and common PQ editing)
and much more is exclusive to WaveLab 8.
