The update on update 13 blog post has some welcome news that Bentley appears to be focusing on fixing the numerous bugs. It refers to the U13 being available before the end of the season. Which season did you have in mind? Football, Cricket, Summer? I also understand that not all the DWG issues will be resolves which is a major headache for us as the DWG performance is woeful compared to V8i. Also what does the first sentence mean as it makes little sense?
Season meaning Spring, which is how I'd phrased it until a colleague astutely reminded me the Earth isn't flat. So, I should say by the end of Spring-or-Fall-depending-on-where-you-live.
If the DWG performance you're referring to is the issue where legacy ACIS solids cause delay, then you may be glad to hear opening such files will be about 50% faster in U13 compared to previous CE Update releases. We will continue to work through this until we have parity or better with V8i.
Thanks for remarking on my typo, I have corrected the first sentence.

I'll sacrifice a chicken tonight... just to make sure :-)
The speed up will be most welcome but it's also the fact that V8i will open DWG files that crash Connect. If you look at my recent service tickets you will see an example.
120-250% faster opening - looks promising...
