I wonder if and when Microstation Powerdraft CE16 will be released. It didn't get a 15.2 release, too. Not to speak of the German localization...
Do you have any information on this, Andrew Bell?
There has been no recent news from Bentley management for new releases of MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition.

Sorry to say but your users pay for Select and part of Select is free upgrade. PowerDraft CE 15.0 was released on 12/02/2020 that is 18 months ago tomorrow. In the past PowerDraft typically is released c. 4 weeks post MicroStation
MicroStation has had 2 additional releases since this date.
If I were a PowerDraft user I would be seeking a refund. This is not acceptable for the userbase that rely on upgrades, BUG fixes, speed and performance issues and new enhancements to make their lives easier, smoother etc.
So when is PowerDraft CE 16 going to be released?
PowerDraft CE 15.0 German was released on 6/1/2021, so it's not 18 months but I find it still inaccpetable that we Microstation Powerdraft users are treated as 2nd class customers and have to wait for a piece of software that is basically the same as the full Microstation minus batch utilities and 3D for ages - not to mention the German localization...
Another week gone and no news.
By the way, I asked for a refund for the waiting time and someone from the Bentley camp tried to contact me on the phone but I wasn't at my workplace...
Let us know how you get on with a refund..... we can escalate it to the masses
