The INT version will run with the version 24 AUS license, but last time I checked (Friday), the AUS licenses have not been set to update to 24 yet.
The AUS/NZ launch is on the 16th, so we may have to wait until then.
Although the 24 CI tools are launching tomorrow, which seems silly if we have no licenses for 24 yet.
Check your licence manager to see if you can upgrade yet (assuming you have paid for the upgrade).
As far as I'm aware, AC release dates around the world have always been staggered and the Aus/NZ launch has been about 1 month after INT release. So this year is quicker than usual. I believe GS sets these dates.

We've always launched our Tools with the INT release, but tools specific to Aus/NZ (e.g. Bracing) launch with the local AC release.

Earlier this morning i saw some of the features for Revit 2021. The only interesting thing, and its a experimental one, is the generative design tool, which generates volumetric masses but this is something that works better for big projects. Other than that there is nothing. Even Mr. Balkan Architect, one of the most vocal Revit evangelists, is not impressed. Could this be the beginning of the end for Revit as Mr. Bursell suggested?

This kind of neglect and total apathy for one of their supposed star products must mean they are working in the shadows on something completely new to substitute Revit right (that is, buying someone out :lol: )? So Graphisoft must not rest on their laurels.

Well, Revit has been stagnant for some years as far as I know. But now it seems Autodesk is going full speed ahead with the IFC support, which can be good for all.

Or maybe they are buying Graphisoft :lol:

Autodesk appears to be working towards a fully integrated cloud based solution, that is a per user per project per month subscription. Looks to be a great way of keeping the cash flowing and shareholders happy as to keep access to your data you’ll probably have to keep the subscription live

ahh, sounds like something only Autodesk would do; I wouldnt have expected any less of them. Still, it surely will have to be something truly amazing if they think people will comply to that payment scam... or scheme, im not sure which english word to use :wink:

So back on track, I have been using AC24 for a week now in my one-man-band setup and despite my reservations on the burden of carrying the Structural Analysis this release feels quicker & more stable than AC23. On a positive note the publishing of .MOD files which used to take about 20 seconds each on my 12 month old high spec Mac now take about the same as publishing PDFs.

So, WELL DONE Graphisoft, I'm looking forward to the other AC24 promised updates and hopefully more consolidation and workflow enhancements.

Nemetschek (With the great help of the talented people at Graphisoft that developed the Delta Server Technology) is also in this path.

(Perhaps Delta Server Technology is the reason why Nemetschek acquired GS :wink: )

IMO, AC24 is an strategic release. It is the foundation for a "BIM as a service" business. (Everest Summit is the last stop before the clouds, right? :wink:) And for me, the fact that GS is opening the API and including Python, indicates that Nemeschek/Graphisoft has no worries in losing business control, because the plan is to sell "BIM as a service" all in their cloud servers. I am not pessimistic about this. The benefits of this new workflow could be great. But we will see.

Anyway... I haven't tested AC24 yet, but by others feedback on its stability and performance, and the fact that its release timeline was better than last year (with a pandemic in the middle :cry: ), I believe this is a good release. And for this I give a big thank you to all the hard working people on Graphisoft.

So back to work and lets hope AC25 will tell us that "Small Offices Matter". :wink:

What is the cost of new licnese of archicad 24 for INT version?
You will have to ask you local distributor.
Should be the same for all language versions although different countries will have different prices.

You should be able to download and run the INT version on your current license though.
I don't think you need to purchase a separate INT license.
I am pretty sure that INT will run with any language license.
You just can't mix different languages on the one license (like USA, FRA, GER, HUN will not run on the one license).
Download it and give it a try if that is all you need to do.
