Archicad 25 | Full Release information

Josh Verran

Can anyone direct me to where I could find more information regarding the new features in Archicad 25.
Every search result brings up "highlights", "quick overview" or snipets, but not a full list of what is new.
Other links from Graphisoft are for paid content on what's new (course).

The easiest way is to read ArchiCAD 25 reference manual. It is not included into AC 25 installation, but can be found online. PDF is also available to download. In total it has about 4000 pages.
First several pages are describing all new features.

https://help.graphisoft.com/AC/25/INT/#t=_AC25_Help%2F001_ACHelpIntro%2F001_ACHelpIntro-1.htm

You also can search in GDL manual to find new GDL commands (if you want to get complete information about new features), as this part is not included into main AC manual.

Thanks Podolsky.

You weren't lying about the number of pages (4040).
I'll have a more detailed look through later.

At a glimpse, the "New Features in Archicad 25" tab seems to be a pretty small list.
Perhaps the "Highlights" were actually the full list.

AC25 release was described to us as a "Major" release/upgrade, but a pretty underwhelming list of additions considering the feedback from users over the last few years.

Perhaps there's more to come...

I think all got depression by discussing new version in another thread. First Brexit, then COVID, then war in Armenia, then explosion in Beirut, then war in Israel and now ArchiCAD 25...

Don't upgrade yet. There are too many bugs in ArchiCAD 25 that make it unstable.

Have been using it full time since the Beta and (except for the custom title bug) it is stable and behaves as expected, So there is no reason not to upgrade.
That been said if 24 is working for you without issues then as usual wait for the first update.

I am using the trial version and it crashes continually. (Windows 10, Intel i7 with 32GB RAM). There's no way I'd fork out the £2k it costs while it's this flaky.

For my part, I am really in trouble with it.

FWIW I also tested it running on a base M-1 Macbook Air and it felt faster than on my 16" MBP.

I can't even migrate files from ArchiCAD previous version.
