New Autodesk Design Review 2010 for DWF, DWFx and PDF files

As a part of the release of the new 2010-family of products, Autodesk has published the new version of its free viewing and markup tool for CAD files - Autodesk Design Review 2010.

Like all other members of the 2010 family, Design Review 2010 sports the new ribbon user interface and like all other "2010" applications it is easier to use. E.g. the open dialog lists not only DWF and DWFx but also all other supported file formats (sounds much logical than the older Import). So you can now directly open also the DWG and DXF files (they are converted to DWF on background), the newly supported PDF files and also the DGN and JT files (if you install the plugins).

The markup tools are enhanced with highlighter, line formatting, markup summaries and secured markups. For better data security, DWFx files can be now digitally signed.

There is a new bootstrap installer which automatically downloads and installs the neccessary system components of Design Review.
