Nemetschek North America Releases VectorWorks 12.5.3 Update

Press release date: Nov 15, 2007

Columbia, Maryland (November 15, 2007)-Nemetschek North America has released VectorWorks 12.5.3, an update to the VectorWorks 12.x product. The update resolves a small number of problems of broad interest to VectorWorks 12.x users. This update also provides the first release version of VectorWorks IFC functionality for VectorWorks Architect. This IFC export and import capability has passed level 1 certification from the International Association for Interoperability, the governing body for the IFC file format, and has undergone a host of bug fixes and improvements since that certification.

VectorWorks 12.5.3 includes the following:

o A handful of fixes to serious functionality problems seen when using VectorWorks 12.x with Apple's Leopard operating system. This includes problems with patterns, printing, and a crash in some common dialog boxes.

o A fix for a rare case on the Mac where a multi-step sequence of minimizing and expanding VectorWorks documents could ultimately result in the disk file becoming corrupt and losing user data.

o A fix for the 4GB RAM incompatibility seen under some configurations of Windows.

o The final VectorWorks Architect IFC import/export and space object functionality previously released in beta form for VectorWorks 12.5 users.

These downloads will update all English-language VectorWorks 12.x products-including VectorWorks Designer, Architect, Landmark, Spotlight, Machine Design, Fundamentals, and RenderWorks-to version 12.5.3.
