I am still using and updating Cubase since v1.0. Althought that some other DAWs has nice options too (like Ableton Live or Logic Pro or ProTools), this DAW is became an industry standard (also with Nuendo). In this version, some new exciting feature added: sampler track and the bottom editor window which really is a plus when you use this software in a single-display environment (multi-display also supported).
My biggest gripe has been removed in this version of Cubase with the addition of the lower zone. This type of feature has been in other DAWs for some time, so it's nothing groundbreaking, but it definitely has changed my single monitor workflow for the better. I've been a Cubase user since 6, and from my (composition) perspective, it's only been getting better with each iteration.
