The king is dead! Long live the king!
Well, we all expected it would happen some day and we now know for sure. Land Desktop 2009 and Land Desktop Companion 2009 will be the last versions of the venerable Autodesk civil application. Read more after the jump.
From what I understand, after the first week of July, Land Desktop and Land Desktop Companion will no longer be available for subscription and by spring of next year they will be off the price list entirely. However, the LDT Companion will be available as an extension download via the subscription center.
Over the next few days and weeks, I’m sure you’ll hear a blizzard of info on this as the news hits the street. We’ll keep you posted here and in the EECasts with real news (and only a little bit of speculation 😉 )
More importantly, we’ll be here with expert advice and concrete solutions to help in the migration from Land Desktop to the Civil 3D and the new Autodesk product for the civil industry, AutoCad Civil (more on this later).
Not sure if you’ll interpret this as good news or bad, so I’ll forgo my usual “enjoy” sign-off with a request…
