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.
That season comment is still comfusing to me. Are we talking about now ( i guess summer starts now end of may where i live...) this or next month, or in say 6 months? Please clearify this for us all.

You know, Bentley long term policy is to never express anything clearly using normal words, but preferably to use fuzzy "seems to be cool" new words and phrases confusing not native English speakers. In the past it was domain of Bentley marketing, but looks like it has spread over more Bentley departments ...

Yes seems so.. Anyway, hope this will be clearified so we can stop the wild guessing.

Trust me it confuses native English speakers too. Over the years I've sat through various Bentley presentations about their strategy and usually come out none the wiser.
I just want to know which day I can download it, not fuzzy. ^_^

It's Bentley policy (but not Bentley only ;-) that no exact date is announced. It's always "we are targeting this date and the new version will be available, when it will pass quality checks". So as was written in the blog and discussed later, we can expect Update 13 "around end of season", which I interpret "late June".
I recommend to watch webinar done by Samir Haque where more details about new version including information about development cycle, testing and bug fixing strategy were discussed.
