With the embargo coming off AutoCAD 2013 early, information about the new release will start dribbling out from bloggers keen to share their knowledge. Well, what ever else there is to know beyond what Autodesk Japan revealed this week.
As the author of the What's Inside? AutoCAD series of ebooks, I work harder and dig deeper to learn what's inside new releases. Here are a pair of social media commands from deep inside AutoCAD 2013:
ai_open_facebook_with_product and ai_open_twitter_with_product open the Autodesk pages for Facebook and Twitter in your computer's default browser. The "with_product" part makes me think the commands access Facebook and Twitter sites specific to the product you are running, such as AutoCAD or another program.

I anticipate releasing What's Inside? AutoCAD 2013 before the end of March. In the meantime, you can get a copy of last year's edition for $12 from here: www.upfrontezine.com/wia12.
