Joel Orr had more to say in The Library, his online newsletter. In his brief review of A/E/C Systems '96 (dated 20-Jun-96) he reported the following:

"SoftSource showed Vdraft, their new CADD program-cum-Web browser. Beautiful. It reads and writes DWG files (through R12, with R13 coming whenever Autodesk decides to stabilize the format)--several at a time. Drag files from the file manager into Vdraft, and they open in a set of tiled windows. Copy and paste among them. Beautiful interface. A "must-have" for every AutoCAD user."
