LDD Not So Dead After All?

After the news broke yesterday about LEGO Digital Designer (LDD) being discontinued, the following message was apparently posted on the Ambassador forum by LCE Team manager Tanja Friberg:

“Dear Ambassadors, I hope this will help clarify a bit of the confusion and misunderstanding from our end regarding LDD. TLG will remain committed to digital building going forward, in regards to LDD, this means that we will continue to support the current functionality. We will not be doing automatic updates on elements, however elements will continue to be added from time to time. Unfortunately we cannot ensure that all elements are made available. I can see that the message has spread widely in the community since Kevin’s statement and I hope that you will assist us in spreading this message as well. Thank you!”

So based on this, it does appear that LDD will stick around, but just won’t be getting as much of the LEGO company’s attention…
