Autodesk announced AutoCAD R14 on January 15, 2018 and R14.1 on April 3, 2018.
In January 2019, Autodesk announced that as of July 1, 2019, Autodesk Design Reviewer would no longer be available, but as of July 1, 2020, Autodesk Design Reviewer will no longer be available.
AutoCAD LT (or AutoCAD App, but it’s pronounced ‘Aw-toe-See-AHD’ not ‘Aw-toe-See-Dee’ or ‘Aue-toe-See-AHD’) is the free, open source version of AutoCAD. In May 2018, Autodesk released AutoCAD LT R14.1.
In July 2019, Autodesk announced that as of July 1, 2019, Autodesk Design Reviewer would no longer be available.
AutoCAD was originally a standalone piece of software intended for design and drafting work on desktop computers. It was developed in the early 1980s by a team at the prominent Chicago-based H. B. Fuller Co. (then known as the H. B. Fuller Co. Computer Services Division).
In 1990, the H. B. Fuller Co. team that created AutoCAD opened the source code to it and began to make the program available under a free software license. AutoCAD source code is available at GitHub.
An AutoCAD user community, the Autodesk User Group, has been operating since 1994. The Autodesk User Group uses the official support structure at Autodesk to develop a dialogue between Autodesk and its users to discuss any issues that have come up, as well as suggestions for future development.
The key difference between AutoCAD and previous CAD software was the ability to store a geometric model in a file. The first model file format was introduced in AutoCAD 1.0. Early file formats could only handle simple geometric models, but the new format could handle many different types of objects. For example, a company could use AutoCAD to draw the outside of a building or an office and store the resulting geometry in a file that could be opened by any application or program. Although most CAD programs had their own built-in modeling tools, this first version of AutoCAD was the first CAD program that allowed modeling to be done without the need for specialized software.

Application programming interface
AutoCAD’s API allows application programming of AutoCAD, and integration with other software. This API is accessible through the command line, OLE, COM, and.NET based programming.
Actions, toolbars, menus, command stations and macros are possible through this API. Actions are “Events” that occur during a command. For example, a macro might create a number of rectangles, each with the specified coordinates and text. The macro would normally be activated using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+T. A macro might also be activated in response to other events such as the placing of a text or the insertion of a point, or in response to the selection of a block or of a feature. Toolbars are items displayed on the user interface, which can contain lists of menus, windows, and buttons.
AutoCAD’s file format is the DXF file format, which is text based. It is also the format of a number of tools and features in the product.
AutoCAD also has a Direct X interface which allows the integration of AutoCAD features into the Windows operating system and other programs such as Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, and Microsoft Outlook.
AutoCAD, like all other CAD software, has a graphical user interface and the ability to change the display settings for objects.
AutoCAD releases are organized into major releases, numbered AutoCAD 10.0, 11.0, 12.0 and so on, for AutoCAD 2002 through to AutoCAD 2013. Each major release includes major new features and revisions to the base product and product updates. Smaller releases (e.g..01 and.02) typically include small fixes and revisions to the base product. The current major release of AutoCAD is AutoCAD 2016.
2002–2006 AutoCAD 3D
AutoCAD 3D is the first version of AutoCAD that was not a CAD variant of AutoCAD. It was released in 2002, and focused on 3D drawing and visualisation.
2007–2009 AutoCAD 2008
The second generation of AutoCAD, AutoCAD 2008, was the first release of AutoCAD that was a major revision of AutoCAD from the previous version. It was released in 2007. The upgrade was considered a “big one” because it was the first major upgrade to AutoCAD since AutoCAD 2000

C# unit test failing when using Entity framework 4
I have a problem with my unit tests. I have a test class (called UnitTest1) with a method called Test1. This is being called when I call a function in a program called Program.
The unit test is failing.
I’ve tried deleting all the solution packages and rebuilding.
I’ve tried deleting the entire solution and rebuilding.
I’ve tried deleting everything in my packages folder and rebuilding.
I’ve tried all the solutions and none of them have worked.

public void Test1()
var result = program.Test1();
Here is the code:
public class Program
public List Test1()
List ints = new List();
List x = new List();
