Generally speaking and looking at the development of Archicad in the new Nemetschek era (and the 12 month upgrade cycle) you should expect the following:
Enhancements on half completed tools presented on the previous version (such Curtain wall) and a new half completed tool which will act as an attraction for potential upgraders.... and so on...
In my opinion what GS lost on the way is the will to create the best possible architectural tool- the one that you could swear on and forget anything else...*
They somehow give me the impression that they develop AC having in mind potential target groups (virtual trace for 2d autoCAD addicts etc)
Still though I believe its the best solution around.. but for how long?
*An outdated Autocad user can complete his work without any supplementary software. He might be slow but he gets the work done using only one application.
Does the same applies in AC? Just take a look at peoples signatures in here... Most of them have a supplementary modeler or addon...
Not Free-form modeling but freedom on modeling!!
