TeighaViewer 3.8-1 released

A new version of TeighaViewer is available for download. This new release has read and write support for .dwg version 2013.

Since ARES CE, BricsCAD and DraftSight use ODA's libraries to handle .dwg files I hope that soon all these programs will be able to read and write 2013 .dwg files.
(ARES CE and DraftSight  already have some basic read-only support for 2013 .dwg files)

New version for ARES CE

Graebert released an updated version for ARES CE. This new version comes with various new tools and fixes. A complete changelog is available here.
As usually .deb, .rpm and tar.gz versions are available for testing with or without registration (some features like saving and printing are not available in the unregistered version).
Unfortunately there is no native 64bit Linux version yet.
Also a special offer is valid until January 5th 2013 so you can buy ARES CE at the discounted price of 495€.
