This is my once-a-month copy/paste blog posting to let you know when Autodesk Freewheel will be unavailable. Months ago Project Freewheel graduated from Autodesk Labs. Project Freewheel users are now using Autodesk Freewheel - the production version.
To check it out for yourself go to:
Autodesk Freewheel lets anyone view a DWF file using just a browser.
Several times during the year, new functionality is released into Autodesk’s Enterprise Information Systems to enhance the company’s services to partners / customers and help the organization run more efficiently. The next update is scheduled for three hours on August 18, 2011.
To implement these changes, Autodesk Freewheel will experience planned downtime from 2:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday, August 18 through 5:00 p.m. PDT on Saturday, August 18. In Greenwich, this would be 12:00 a.m. UDT on Sunday, August 19 through 3:00 a.m. UDT on Sunday, August 19.
As I mention every time, 2012 should be much like 2011 in terms of server maintenance.
We realize that any systems outage impacts the operations of Autodesk, our partners, and our customers. We work diligently to minimize the duration of downtime and appreciate your understanding. So take a three hour break and enjoy the down time.
Updating servers is routinely alive in the lab.
