well this is mainly a call out to graphisoft to find a better way to work with addons...well...something i love of archicad are the addons...but its just unfare...that i had to wait for an update of addons...for AC7 to AC8 ia had to wait sometime,still there are some addons of 7 that i had..that i havent updated..., but now i have to wait again for support on AC 8.1....that kinda borring..!!....i see AC8.1 as a mayor update of AC8, i know that lots of things had fixed and apis have to be updated to work the same way......but its not a mayor release..becuase its being like round number archicad 6 AC7 AC8.......for example zoomgdl..has just updated ther addon for 8...and pum 8.1 is relased....im not sure if im maknig my point here......there has to be a better way to please the costumer...i knopw mnany ppl are not happy with this.....in a way....AC gives u lots of advantages..but u have to have all tools working...

The GDL and the API technology are also updated, that is why the addons have to be updated for the new version(s) too. Technology requirement.

It is my understanding that for developers to update their API's from AC8 to AC81, it is a VERY EASY process. More so than ever before. We should be seeing most of the APIs that were ported to AC8 previously being ported to AC81 shortly.

Keep your fingers crossed and an optimistic outlook on this one. I feel your pain! I'm an API junkie...

What about the standard add-ons like profiler, roof wizard etc. are they already updated to work with 8.1 or are we going to have to wait for a patch?

Included in the package as always.

... and Lumber Pack calculation works in 8.1 now as it did in AC 7 (did not work in AC 8).
