Second candidate for the 1.0 release

Some users found a few bugs in the first release candidate for version 1.0 of the open source BIMserver software. We fixed these issues and also did some additional work on the ‘intelligent merging’. You can test this new merging feature by selecting ‘intelligent merging’ in the settings screen. The merged models (project with subprojects) are now better merged than before. Feel free to try this version and send us feedback. Download it from http://download.bimserver.org

First Release Candidate 1.0

Today we released the first candidate for the 1.0 release of the open source BIMserver software. As you know a lot has changed since the 0.8.1. We made a huge leap in speed, performance and stability again. Under the hood the IFC Engine Library has fixed a caching bug. This makes the export to non-IFC formats (Google Earth, KML, CityGML, Collada) much more stable. Most important new feature is the clash detection. There are still a few issues that we would like to resolve before the 1.0 stable release, but think you should have a look at this stage. Feel free to try this version and send us feedback.
