Project Draw is unleashing software updates at a fast and furious pace. Check it out at http://draw.labs.autodesk.com and tell us what you think: [email protected] or the Project Draw discussion forum.
We unveiled Project Draw 0.5 on October 24, but we didn't stop working on it. On October 26, we added the ability for users to draw without having to log in. We wanted to follow in the footsteps of Project Freewheel in this regard. Login to Project Freewheel or Project Draw is only required when you want to retrieve or save a drawing. That way it will be there for you the next time you visit the site. It only took two days to update to Project Draw version 0.5.1. That's the beauty of software as a service. We make an update, and it's immediately available. We get to skip the steps of burning media, shipping, receiving, and installing.
Continuing in this web 2.0 vein, we celebrated Halloween by releasing build 0.5.2 with a fix for a file deletion defect. Files that override file names were not always deleted properly from the file system. The fast and furious strategy can apply to defect corrections in addition to new features. The process is very similar.
Yesterday we released Project Draw build 0.6. This release has many internal improvements. It also has several customer facing additions such as: rotational grid, a work around the IE popup blocker, and a new minimize Properties pane.
Rolling out functionality at a fast and furious pace is alive in the lab.
