After last spring's detour, when Autodesk got the Open Design Alliance to drop the "we imitate TrustedDWG" thingy, the popular alternative to Autodesk's DWG tech -- DWGdirect -- has been updated with:
-- annotation scaling
-- DWF file underlays
-- partial screen updates
-- table and table style support
-- new classes and methods
I wonder if the new DWGdirect also supports DGN underlays and xlation? It should. After all, the organization changed its name from "OpenDWG" to "Open Design" after becoming the clearinghouse for Bentley's DGN (design) format.
