According to Wikipedia, Jay Peak is a Vermont mountain located 5 miles south of the United States and Canada border. It also happens to be the code name of AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013. Our Product Management team likes to ski, so they choose code names from ski areas, mountains, and ravines.
The 2013 release has been a very busy one, as you might have guessed since I have not been able to post anything to this blog in a very long time. No matter how well you plan a release, there is always a lot of work to do at the end and last minute issue always pops up. Fortunately, we have accomplished a lot in this release. The new features in the application are outstanding, and we have completed a lot of work around the API.
I decided instead of having a quick "What's New" post where I go over the new features to start a series of posts where I will discuss the new functionality in greater detail. The series will go by the title: "21 Weeks of Jay Peak", and yes, there should be enough new material to fill up the 21 weeks.
I will post about the new features starting next week, once everything is finalized and completed. I hope you stick around for all the new information.
