After reviewing Revit 2014. I would say this is probably the biggest advancement in this software since 2009. Not only do I think this is a good release, this is going to be a great release. Will eliminate half of my wish-list. The added functions with the excel ability is probably my favorite along with Non Rectangular Crop regions. There’s a lot of enhancements and not all are on this list.  Once you dive into the software, you will probably see a lot of advancements that are not going to be in the list of improvements. SO enjoy!
