    I guess the “cat is out of the bag” with that article, although some of the features described are purely version 7.0, and other features (API) have already been publicly announced.

    “Interference detection, which scans models for conflicts between user-specifiable elements and systems, has been strengthened.”

    Checking the Autodesk website this morning, the new name is being displayed. It’s only a matter of days (or hours).

    Woah! The article says you can schedule across linked projects in R8! That's huge! I have several projects where we decided against linking because we couldn't schedule the data.

    This could change things a lot if the article holds true.

    Might help us out with our housing projects. However groups are still the biggest issue there.

    Whoa, indeed! I think this author needs to check his facts. Pretty sure that "cross-scheduling between models" has not been implemented yet.

    These notes were in the March 15th Autodesk press release:

    • Interference Detection scans models for conflicts between user-specifiable elements and systems

    • Easy upload of files from Autodesk Revit Building to an Autodesk® Buzzsaw® project site, and automatic conversion to DWG or Autodesk® DWF™ format

    • Link DWF markups made in Autodesk® DWF™ Composer, allowing you to keep your revision markup process digital, preserving data integrity and ease of sharing

    • New API allows developers to access object data, query properties, extract geometry and change properties.

    I am keenly interested in the link between Buzzsaw and Revit, as well as the ability to link DWF markups. I believe these features will help ease the level of resistance that we have encountered from some project consultants who have less sophisticated technology in place.

    James is right. We read these articles carefully, and of course we know the inside story. The sad truth is that it is rare these articles are 100% factually correct. The Popular Science article was about 50% correct, and they interviewed SOM in person!

    So be careful with hearsay!

    You are right, I don't recall this feature in 8.0. What he is probably talking about is being able to schedule nested families.
