7.1 surroundssound mix in Cubase8???


I would love to upgrade my Cubase6 to 8.5 if it can make 7.1 surrounds-sound mix.

But can it only export as 5.1 and not 7.1?
Any plans for when 7.1 mix i Cubase will be possible?

Now people can buy 200 euro 7.1 surroundssound headphones (eg Asus Strix 7.1) and it would be great to produce some music in 7.1 - Så I believe surroundmix will be more common!!!
