CIVIL DESIGNER 2011: Build 5 released and ready to be downloaded

We have released build 5 (March 15th 2011) which has some significant improvements for all CIVIL DESIGNER 2011 clients. While we typically just optimize a specific version once it has been released, we do yet again have a couple of new functions in this latest build for you. Visit our updates page on the Civil Designer website to download the latest build if you have not done so already. For those that have enabled Civil Designer to prompt them when a new build is available, you should already be aware of this latest release.

So what's new in Civil Designer build 5:

GENERAL
  • Improved speed optimization: We are focusing on improving the speed of Civil Designer to ensure it is the fastest design software on the market. We have done some tweaks in build 5 and are looking to further optimize the software significantly in the next build to enforce our position in the market of not only being able to handle the largest drawings but also be the fastest design software around.
  • Updated help file documentation (Separate Download File on Updates page): Make sure you have download the latest help file documentation from our Civil Designer website. We keep this as a separate file from the program to keep the download smaller.
