Autodesk law suit vs the Open Design Alliance is no longer necessary. Here are two reasons why:
1. The ODA has upated its DWG API with the offending code removed:
Updated version 2.1.1 libraries, which do not include the code affected by the order, are available now, in Windows 32 and 64 bit versions. We expect to make replacement libraries for other platforms and compilers available within the week.
2. ODA members are already releasing services packs that exclude the offending code:
* SolidWorks 2007 SP2.1, released last week, updates the Open Design Alliance DWGDirect libraries from version 2.1.0 to 2.1.1.
* The beta version of IntelliCAD 6.3, released last Thursday, uses DWGdirect 2.1.1 libraries.
