AutoCAD 2008 is out!

The NDA has been lifted, so let the discussions begin.

Here is the official Autodesk web page on AutoCAD 2008.

I’m sure there will be dozens of reviews starting to appear in the near future at your favorite blog/website.

Here’s are the first ones I have seen.

Lynn Allen, It’s official – AutoCAD 2008 is here

Heidi Hewett, AutoCAD 2008… The one you’ve been waiting for!!!!

My favorite new features?

  1. Layer properties per viewport. This means you can set the color, linetype, lineweight, etc. on a per-viewport basis.
  2. Data links to Excel. It’s a great start, just don’t get rid of your XL2CAD yet.
  3. Multiline attributes
  4. Ability to split a table. This is a huge benefit for SSM users whose sheet list tables were taller than one sheet.
