The Autodesk fiscal year runs from February 1 through January 1. So we just completed FY11 and are now in FY12. Looking at the number of new, updated, and technology previews as documented on What's New, I see that FY11 was the biggest year yet for Autodesk Labs.
If history is any indication, you can expect even more technology preview activity on Autodesk Labs this fiscal year.
Getting trendy is alive in the lab.
