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?
The product development team is currently working on the MicroStation PowerDraft CONNECT Edition updates and the estimated release date is Q1/2022.
So are we getting a refund for the waiting time? Compared to full Microstation we get half the functionality and also pay half the amount of select services fees, that's ok. That doesn't imply we should also wait double time for updated functionality, does it?

Really? Sorry, but it sounds more like bad joke.
MicroStation CE Update 16 was released in 2021/6, so "Q1/2022" is 6 - 9 month later. At this time, based on 6-months released cycle, MicroStation CE U16.1 or U17 will be released. So, PD will be again "one step behind"?

For as long as I have been working with Bentley software c,30 years, PowerDraft has ALWAYS been released c. 8 weeks post MicroStation. It has been 19 months to date since the last version (15.0 which has many BUGs including the level selector which 15.2 would have fixed) and now you expect them to wait up to another 6 months if you work to the end of Q1 2022. that will be 2 years...........This is crazy. and for one think PowerDraft users should seek a refund.

I have asked for a refund but haven't heard back from Bentley yet.
Just heard that Bentley will withdraw Powerdraft.
Users may want to "upgrade" license to MicroStation at no extra cost, BUT of course going forward users must pay MicroStation subscription which is double price.
Some users may like this, and some user don't.
Can you confirm @Reginald Wallace ?
