Yesterday (August 6, 2007), we shipped our second release of AutoCAD P&ID. Finally, I can talk about it! There are all sorts of rules about discussing unreleased software (legal, government, and revenue-recognition-type rules), which limited all the cool things I could talk about. It is weird to be working on interesting features but not being able to write about them. One can only blog so much about trips and shoes.
So, AutoCAD P&ID 2008 is out. It is based on AutoCAD 2008, which was released this past spring. It has improvements over the first release in areas such as creating new symbols, data access and editing, endcoded and closed valves, nozzle behavior, DWF publishing, improved drafting usability, and a bunch of other things. I'll be talking more about these items in upcoming posts. And, of course, AutoCAD P&ID 2008 contains a full copy of AutoCAD 2008, so you get all the juicy AutoCAD functionality also!
If you are interested in taking a look at the product, you can download a 30-day trial from the download link on this page: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?id=8877989&siteID=123112. I look forward to hearing your feedback!
