But hey, at least the bar is low.
Are you insinuating that the competition is as woeful as Archicad and that Graphisoft doesn't have to do much to think they have the best or to keep ahead?
Really really low.
No, I simply meant that they've spend the last several years producing such underwhelming releases after underwhelming releases, with barely any major improvements (that benefit all or most, and not just large "key client" firms) and culminating in the most recent release that barely even bothered trying to conceal the lack of any meaningful new features at all ( I guess they'll argue that Param-O was a big new feature, but.....that's an argument and discussion for another day).
So much so that NOW the bar of expectation for what to look forward to, as to whether they'll be any new features or major improvements for this next version is so low, they could get away with doing the bare minimum least in terms of a new release. Which, let's be honest, has been kind of the new normality anyway.
As long as it's released on time, and doesn't crash upon opening, then break out the champagne. glasses.
That's practically where we are at now as a userbase.
That we've been conditioned now to expect the least and have the lowest expectations.
And yes, they should just get rid of the Wishlist section altogether.
It doesn't make sense at this point to have it there when you're just going to ignore it and do what you want anyway which seems to involve producing features and "improvements
" that most people didn't ask for,
....and then ask for feedback after the fact on these features that (I'd imagine) most aren't even using.
Like, if you're not interested in our opinion before you spend all the time and resources doing it, then logically speaking, why would our feedback be of any value after the fact?
Seems like a waste of time on both ends of that equation to me.
But that's just me.
