A reader asks,
Will you be doing a new What's New in 2015 book this year?
I call 2014 "the year Autodesk gave up on AutoCAD." While beta testing the software, I was so disgusted at the lack of new features that I also gave up on AutoCAD -- after writing about it for 29 years.
This release has so little in it that it's not worth my time writing about it: there are unwelcome changes to the UI, sparse tweaks to a very few existing commands, and some changes to external applications. Other than a lasso selection tool, there is nothing brand-new to a release for which Autodesk charges $4,200 in upgrade fees.
Well it is sure good to hear someone else say it as it is. My first looks just showed that they seem to be using it as a cash cow to fund everything else. Thanks for all the help in the past.
