Instant DWF in AutoCAD 2008

As Beth Powell and Robin Capper blog today, there is a useful new feature in AutoCAD 2008 - "Automatic DWF Publish". When you switch in on, AutoCAD creates an automatic DWF-version copy of any DWG drawing you save. You can enable this option in Options > Plot and Publish.

I use an add-on utility with similar functionality - AutoDWF (free from CAD Studio). AutoDWF also allows to upload the resulting DWF file to a FTP server.
I agree with Robin that such function is very useful but it may be a bit intrusive as it delays save operations - AutoCAD is busy publishing the DWF file. But it is a great way to publish the current version of your designs transparently.
