MAC-tastic Upgrade!

From my super secret inside sources at Autodesk, this picture... 

and the following facts...

AutoCAD 2014 for Mac is Here!
Further demonstrating the company’s commitment to Apple platforms, it announced that Autodesk AutoCAD 2014 for Mac and Autodesk AutoCAD LT for Mac are available immediately. 

Support for Apple’s Retina display, synchronization with Autodesk 360 and other enhancements make AutoCAD 2014 for Mac the most powerful 2D & 3D CAD application for Mac. AutoCAD 2014 for Mac is one of the first major professional software applications to support Apple’s new retina display, which delivers a superior user experience.  AutoCAD 2014 for Mac also boasts major improvements such as synchronization with the Autodesk 360 cloud platform, Package Drawing (like eTransmit on Windows) and overall performance enhancements and UI improvements.

“AutoCAD for Mac users are extremely passionate, and we have worked hard to incorporate their top requests and feedback into this release,” said Amy Bunszel, vice president of AutoCAD products at Autodesk. “Customers will find the overall experience much faster and cleaner, enabling designers to be more efficient and collaborative with their teams.” 

The enhancements in both AutoCAD 2014 for Mac and AutoCAD LT 2014 for Mac are the result of rigorous development work to give customers a better experience and connect them to the Autodesk 360 platform, giving customers access to cloud-based storage and collaboration capabilities.  Other enhancements include:

Retina Display Support: AutoCAD now fully supports Apple’s stunning, high-definition Retina display experience throughout the user interface with crisper lines and text, easier-to-see tools, and a much higher level of detail even at high zoom levels.

Drawing Sync: Directly access files from Autodesk 360 and synchronize them between your computer and the cloud.

Package Drawing: Similar to eTransmit in AutoCAD for Windows, Package Drawing allows users to quickly collect related files into a compressed folder for easy distribution or storage.

Online Help: We’ve made major changes to help find the assistance.

Default Save--‐as--‐Previous Version: It's now possible to set a default save-as version for  drawings.

Software Security Enhancements: AutoCAD 2014 for Mac enhances software security and helps prevent loading and running of unauthorized or malicious AutoLISP applications.
