AutoCAD reactors are user friendly
You can write your own reactors which react on a change in your DWG drawing, on other commands launched, on drawing about to be closed, etc. Reactors can be written even in VisualLISP and VBA - so you don't have to be a C++ genius-programmer to write your own ones. Just think of the options - how many steps you have to repeat daily editing your drawings. Switching layers on and off, manipulating layouts, publishing a fresh drawing copy, forgetting to reset the xxxxx variable when doing yyyyy. All this can be automated using reactors.

Inventor 11 information leaked out
Some interesting news seem to come also for the bigger brother - Autodesk Inventor Professional 11 (the new Solid Dynamics' simulation module, flavored versions...).
Information about the new AutoCAD 2007 (lots of 3D stuff as well - expect higher requirements for memory and graphics cards) is promised to be released in a couple of days.
