1.8 update is free.

I believe it will be off-sale when 1.8 hits, so it seems like now would be the most economical time to buy :)

Playmaker is $45 right now.  Normally it's $95.  I have no idea why they are selling this so cheap.  They could sell it for $500 and it'd be worth it.  They'd probably sell less, but make more money.

Quite the contrary, I believe... Bought me PlayMaker today. This, after a couple of years of "scouting" the Asset Store every now and then and not making my mind up... You see, although I have no prior experience as a video game designer, I'm not entirely new to the more traditional board game design; I have one such game to my account –a non-abstract Halma-like strategy/race/transport puzzle hybrid kind of game– and wanted to "port" these ideas into the electronic realm... This 50% off discount was the incentive I needed to finally start prototyping my game.

My guess is Unity 5 is still some time away and a boost in PM sales was needed...

Tons of stuff on there and it hasn't even been updated since Late November. Most of the major new features are noted above, but there has been a lot of stability and compatibility fixes since then. Unity 5.0 makes some pretty big changes.

I was hoping to see 'global variable can be renamed' to the list.

Is there going to be any support for the new UI with Playmaker?

I am willing to help fund of the R&D to make it happen.

"new UI with Playmaker? "

There has been support for it for months already.

The UI proxy works fine, but is there a way to detect once the mouse hovers over a button?
