Design++ 9.0 Highlights

Design Power is pleased to announce its first independent Design++® release. Design++ 9.0 is backward compatible with the last Bentley Design++ V8i (SELECTseries 2) release. No changes are needed in your application source code - just recompile it.

Highlights of the new release include the following:

Latest IDE Version

Integrated Development Environment (IDE) has gone through another major improvement cycle - numerous errors and stability issues have been fixed. Extra effort was put in to optimization resulting in some notable performance improvements.

New Licensing Mechanism with Much Improved Network Licensing

Independent Server Setup - Any workstation can be configured as a license server without installing Design++ to it.

True Network Licensing - Design++ finds its license anywhere on the company network automatically. And, there is no need to share server directories.

Redundant License Servers - If one license server goes offline, Design++ can automatically find and switch to another server, on the fly.

Network License Control - License server can specify which domains, workstations, or users are included or excluded from its Design++ license. Likewise, client workstation can specify which license servers Design++ can obtain its license from.

Support of Latest MicroStation and AutoCAD Versions

Design++ 9.0 integrates with the following CAD versions.

MicroStation: V7 (aka J), V8 XM Edition, V8i, V8i (SELECTseries 1, 2, and 3)

AutoCAD (32-bit): 2004-2013

AutoCAD (64-bit): 2009-2013
