Not much here for smaller firms. The bulk of these "Major" upgrades are for larger architecture firms. Hopefully they have not announced everything added into AC 23 and these are just the major bullet points aimed at appeasing larger practices! It's clear that we should only expect small incremental improvements since GS has fully adopted a yearly release cycle. That said, based solely on the announced new features, buying the yearly maintenance contract seems like a pretty poor value at this point, especially for small to medium sized firms who cannot take advantage of volume pricing.
I must agree with rm on this case.
Ah the performance improvements. In each version there is the same statement. It will be probably well presented how fast it is at the event, but our real projects are a different case.
I am really happy that AC23 has green lights for the launch and has improvements. But to be honest with you I must weigh the improvements vs. time spent in upgrading our office standard in our office for the new stuff. Especially the template is not just a copy paste thing, but a laborious task. So currently I am not really "on fire" wanting to upgrade from 22 to 23.
BTW there is nothing written about the certification of IFC4?!?!?
I am waiting to hear the first results from the users about the improvements.
