Remember this from Alfred Scott?
"Bear in mind that PowerCADD 10 is a new program. As a work in progress, I would guess it’s about 10-15% done."

I just got the latest Beta. Progress beyond what is mentioned above is questionable, in my opinion.

Seems a bit harsh and unrealistic

Disappointing if that is the case, I haven't taken up the public beta because I need to keep working so I'm using a substitute but it looks like I may be using it for a lot longer than I thought I would

Having downloaded each of the builds and tried them out, I don't agree with that assessment. The builds are coming on a near weekly basis and feels quite solid, on my M1 Studio Mac it is very fluid and looks and feels very much a Powercadd. It appears the basic PowerCadd will be completed first, then various implementations of the most popular Wildtools tools. I would say there is still a ways to go but a lot of the basic work is done.

The basics are working well- lines, shapes, layers, sheets, etc. The program loads and runs fast and is stable. In my opinion and estimation, they are 60 percent complete. All of us know what is needed in order to make this program worth its while, so I won’t tire you with the details.

The Forum has been down for a while... any new updates on the progress with the Beta?

In particular, as deArch mentions, those of you who are beta testers, (i.e. HSD), have you continued to receive updated beta versions every week or two, or not?

And if anyone from Autodessys or Engineered Software reads this forum, now would be a great time to provide an update of current progress and an estimated release time for PC10, as the Mojave OS sinks further and further back towards complete obsolescence.

The new beta releases do seem to trickle in every two or three weeks. I have to be productive and have been too busy to play with it much, but the release notes indicate they are making progress.
