Fantastic, thank you everyone. We will be in touch with you each directly to get you involved. For those of you who are on windows…we are about to start an exclusive invitation only beta to existing customers. If you are not an existing customer and are interested in getting invited to this beta period let me know.
I’d also be very excited to try the 3.0 Beta for Windows. I’ve tried version 2 a little in architecture school but never got passed the threshold of the very cumbersome UI. Seeing version 3.0 on the Basecamp made me really happy!
I’m a plugin developer myself and especially interested in usability so hopefully I could provide useful feedback .
@everyone, here is the content of the official email we sent out yesterday. Some of you may not get this email directly so I’m sharing here. Remember, you must be an existing customer to participate in this beta. You may want to contact your local reseller to inquire about our current upgrade promotions.
