Version 26 5002 update


We were all "underwhelmed" when version 26 was released, with lack of any meaningful features for the bottom feeders who work on her own. Part of Graphisoft mitigation statement, was that new features would be released during the following months. We are now approaching a new release version and I have yet to see any meaningful improvements in the current version, other than bug fixes. Update 3  5002 looks more like a washing powder comercial, faster, enhanced, streamlined and improved. These are weasel words for improvements that no one can quantify. So they removed a line of text in the info box, and some minor functions in dimension. and a couple of other useless improvements. It's a bit like buying your fav packet of biscuits, to find they cost more, weigh less and there are now 2 fewer items in the packet.

It is called "shrinkflation". Same price, less product.

Quite popular these days... or is it years?

I just learned a new word today. 🙂

Vendors are doing this in Hungary too (mostly with food portions) but I did not know that this has a name.
