From what I understand, objects used in a PLN will be saved with the PLN similar to a PLA, which should make upgrading from one version to another much easier with regards to the library, since you will no longer need to load multiple versions of the archicad library.

I think this idea of maintaing old versions of the libraries makes about as much sense as maintaining old versions of the software itself. It's an insane piece of archaic hoop-jumping foolishness.Rakela wrote:

64bit is supposed to be in as well
