Although the new Smoke will ship in the Fall, Autodesk will offer a pre-released preview of the product in June. Instead of the company's typical 30-day trial download, Smoke will be available for use until the product ships. "We've never done this before," says Hamaker. "We're interested to see how people use it." Any customers under subscription will automatically receive the new version of Smoke when it's released.
This is certainly not the old Autodesk. Appartently, Smoke isn't the only thing that's changed over at Autodesk! Kudos.
