InfraWorks 360 Pro - Clarification from Autodesk

If you read this post from last week, you probably noticed there were a few unanswered questions about the release of InfraWorks 360 Pro.  Justin Lokitz from Autodesk picked up on that and was kind and diligent enough to send me some additional info.  I can't say it better than he did so here is his message:

Hi Eric,

I Just read your recent blog post about InfraWorks and I would like to help clear anything up that I can.  Firstly, it looks like you did get an answer to your terrain shaping questions.  Having said that, we are also working on plans to ensure that we have new features documented and/or videos published in order to help users make sense of what we’re releasing.  With a schedule that has us releasing product more than once per year, we’re continuing to refine how we document what we’ve released.  And your blog does a great job pointing this out.

Regarding the naming and multiple icons, with several new releases hitting the market at the same time (i.e. InfraWorks 360 Pro, InfraWorks 2014 R2, and the IDS-U version of InfraWorks 2014) we made the decision to go with a single install rather than sever different releases and installs.  While I agree that this is confusing at the moment, given the three separate icons, you have the right of it: each one represents a different licensed product.  In the future this will be much more obvious.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, by all means let me know.  Thanks for all of the great product coverage.

Best Regards,
Justin
