I just received an e-mail "confirming" my subscription informtion from Autodork. Has anyone heard any news of a new release (or anything for that matter)?

I believe Autodesks theory is a release every year, so 2006 should be out in march or april of 2005.

That's the impression I got when an AutoDork Rep came to our AUG meeting.

Said something along the lines of: people are paying more for the subscriptions than if they just waited for the next release.

But of course that was all "off the record".

Perhaps your message is refering to the Civil 3D package.

I may be a little slow so...

Is this post a joke?

I have had LT2005 for a while......

Or perhaps it was released earlier than the full version.

No, it's not a joke. AutoDork plans to release a new AutoCAD every year now. AutoCAD 2006 (actual name unknow at this point) should be here around March of 2005.

AutoCAD will almost always be the first one released (it's the money maker), all the family programs (LT, ADT, MAP, Civil, etc) will come sortly after.

It is also an attempt to keep Microstation V8 a year behind in compatability with AutoCad. Microstation has yearly releases now in april.

Hasn't this been announced for a while? You can pre-order your AutoCAD 2006 books (the 2006 bible, vba, yada-yada) on Amazon and a few other sites.  :?:

hmmm... since the advent of AutoCAD in the drafting arena, my income has increased....  ummm... carry the 3....  umm... around 325%.  Or around 6% per year for the last 20 years.  Beats the crud out of inflation over the same time period.

20 years ago a new seat of AutoCAD cost us about 150 billing rate manhours to buy, today a new seat costs about 100 billing rate manhours.  So the cost of the software is actually getting cheaper.  Compare that to other maintenance costs, like office space rental, health insurance, or the electric bill.

If you're gettin' poorer, you're doing something very wrong.
