Where can I find a list of what new goodies we can expect in the next version of archicad?

Interesting, who is designing ArchiCAD these days? Who is the main architect and decision maker of new features? There must be some specific group responsible for that.
Bring these guys here - looks like there are a lot of questions people have to them.

I think a constant drip feeding of updates containing bug fixes, workflow improvements & minor features would be a good strategy. The Big push to upgrade could then be driven by must have new features like internal modules. I share the disappointment of this release, but from the Beta bugs I have a feeling there is some deep restructuring of the code in progress which, hopefully, will bring positive changes in the near future.
And it's been coming for the longest time.
Version 20 was largely a (literal) cosmetic upgrade with the interface getting "upgraded"
Well, as a good sign of the constant development of Archicad, one can consider how the most significant new features are taken for granted and from today's perspective it is hardly imaginable that we used to work without them. For example, the AC20 was "largely a cosmetic upgrade", but it also featured graphic overrides. I still remember how I've realised the surprising power of this new feature, as it wasn't communicated by GS as one of the "killer features" of the new version – I cannot imagine using Archicad without it now. Then AC21 and its vast redesign stair and rail tools (I hardly know anyone who fell in love with these renewed tools at a first sight and there are some issues with them until today, but I am grateful that they exist) – but what about the classifications and properties, that, once they are implemented into the workflow, significantly change the way one works? I am quite sure that in a year or two, every user will benefit from the features that were introduced recently.
Sure, I am lacking some features too (holes in the roof, please!), but on the other hand, I am glad that AC is stable yet a complex app that doesn't change with every single version.
BTW, I hope that there will be some interesting "hidden gems" in the new version too, even they are not listed on the related GS knowledgebase page yet. 😉

One gem is "Editing multiple Layer Combinations from the Layers Palette" like what could be done from Attribute Manager in 24.

Actually that can be done in AC23 too, might actually have been introduced in 22?

Getting old, too many upgrades to keep them straight.

I’m not. Paranoid unfortunately owners of big architectural corporation who choose ArchiCAD as a main tool in their practice. Paranoia is always based on ‘can do better and faster’. The idea, that software development for AEC market years behind that it could be, of corse, brings to business owners big suspicions. Currently there is software and users. Users are trained by software developers years how to operate. Luck of professional software operators it’s common problem. But behind of this problem hidden another - software is not completely following basic principles of parametrisaton and automation. Automation is the best answer to the question - can we do better and faster. Any business owner will prefer software, that do task faster - if on one platform I’ll spent three times more time - then why I need it? And why I need to pay for that. What the point if someone can professionally shape 3D and knows all buttons but doesn’t know architectural basics or how shall look like construction documentation. Sooner or later algorithms will replace all of them - and will be required only professional architectural knowledge. Buttons will press themselves. And this is only one right direction of BIM software development. Rest is just temporary show.

The sensation I received after clicking the link to view the "new features" of AC25 was identical to being Rickrolled.

You're gonna get it as a major improvement in ArchiCAD 27.

As expected - this is kitchen cabinet (new one). How to make a hole for sink in upper panel if I'm using separate slab for worktop? Because I'm not using built-in worktop (counter), option to select sink is not available. That means I probably need to use SEO after to extract shape of sink from a cabinet. This problem existed ages - and now, after major update of kitchen cabinets is still there. WHY???

But it is the zones in section (with ability to label them) and the new scheduling features that will be coming in a future update (not too long I hope) that I am looking forward to the most.

Hi Barry
Is that going to appear in 25?

No guarantee, it is still under development (and I am not supposed to discuss it so I just found out).
But it was mentioned in the Aus launch webinar, which is why I mentioned it here.
The webinar was recorded but has not been posted yet.

You can already have it (section labels that read the zone name and number), with the simpleaddon utility that you can buy for 10 bucks in the homonimous website. Very basic but does what it promises.

To be happy, just use Solid Element Operations.

The textured elevations are fantastic. Well done GS team.
