Hi Toscano! Enscape 2.9 is expected sometime in the Fall of 2020, but at this time I can't provide a firm date.
Regarding the light brightness: this is an issue that our developers are aware of and are working to fix. Thanks for reporting it!
Regarding the movie: is the issue you are referring to that the sky appears too white? If this is a Skybox you have added, you can try adjusting the brightness in the Enscape Visual Settings -> Atmosphere tab.
