Yes we are entering "beta season" and SolidWorks 2012 is the next major version to be launched in fall and so the call goes out to those of you who can't wait to get your hands on latest and greatest.

This year SolidWorks has not only added enhancements to the actual software but they have also responded to the feedback from those of you who submitted feedback of our to improve the beta program itself.  Let's face it, you want to test beta but submitting bugs and spending time typing up reports is not fun.  This time around there will be some streamlining to that process as well as better mechanisms to report bugs effectively.
