Just letting you know.

I personaly can't wait to get my gruby little hands on the new upgrade.

I have been using this ever since it was given to us by Newtek, I think that this plugin is a must have.

Thanks Wtools and thanks Newtek.

Nooooo, they're as confused as I am.

Been to Wtools (apologies , a sodding black panther has just entered and is nicking the cat food), and it seems v3 is all over the place, why didn't we know?

:D

No kidding. I actually just found out today before it happened. After that of course, I was all over it like flies on stink.

There was a problem with the download page first off, but all is well, I got my copy, installed it. Boy, is it sweet. I'm still dinking around with it, but, it's pretty awesome so far.

Well, it was announced several months back that it would be coming later this year. Hadn't you heard?

If you have yet to purchase, be prepared to wait because the download for v3.0 is pretty hefty (319Mb).

I'll be interested to find out why it's so big, (as the actress said to the bishop). :D

The size is due to the video tutes, unzipped the manual file size (containg video) is 325mb

Size IS because the whole video tutorial manual (which is awesome).

Mine downloaded in seconds, must have beat the rush! :D

This is the ZIP file contents:

LWCAD3-manual (Dir) 325MB
menu branches (Dir)
Plugin (Dir) 8.59MB
Presets (Dir)
READ ME!.txt
license.txt

One thing to note, there is NO installer for this, you have to move files about yourself.

Does anyone know what "Free LWCAD 3 special! " is all about?

It's there on their front page but just seems to link back to itself. (IE 7)

I believe that the Free LWCAD3 Special, was when it wasn't released yet. If you bought LWCAD2.5 then LWCAD3 was free after some date (Feb 08? or something like that). Now there is no need for that as LWCAD3 is out.

You mean anyone having 2.5 can now have 3 for free ? :confused:
