ODA DWGdirect, DGNdirect v3.1 Beta Supports DWG 2010
AZ, Sep 15, 2009 – The Open Design Alliance (ODA) today announced the beta
release of version 3.1 of its development platform, delivering support for
DWG 2010 files. The release also includes a number of new features for both
DWGdirect and DGNdirect, including overruling and subdivision mesh surface
support for DWG, and greatly improved DGN rendering which now supports
dimensions, level overrides, and line weights.
When asked about the release, Chief Technical Officer of the ODA, Neil
Peterson, responded, “Our goal with version 3.1 is to provide our members
with stable, high quality access to DWG 2010. We received positive feedback
from our alpha release in July, and our newly expanded QA team has put this
latest beta version through a comprehensive and rigorous testing process.
Based on this, we strongly encourage our members to start incorporating
version 3.1 into their applications and testing it.”
He further added, “Our development teams are on stand-by ready to address
any problems that are found with the new DWG 2010 support. Within the next
couple of months we will either upgrade the status of 3.1 to a full
production release, or deliver an update that is certified for production
use. We also have PDF underlay rendering in the works for later this year,
as well as initial access to parametric constraints data.”
Version 3.1 is available immediately at
www.opendesign.com. for download by
ODA members world-wide.
