OK, at least for now I've uploaded a zipped copy of the NX 8.0 'What's New' document to the Siemens PLM GTAC 'scratch' area where you can download a copy once you've logged in using your WEBKEY ID and password. The file name is NX80_Whats_New.zipper
(after downloading, edit the file extension from '.zipper' to '.zip' and then you can uncompress the file). Once open, just double click on the 'index.html' file to launch the 'What's New' document.
To reach the GTAC FTP download site, go to:http://ftp.ugs.com/
Note that the zipped file is still nearly 40mb in size.
Now I understand that this procedure will only allow existing customers with valid WEBKEY ID's to access this document but that cannot be helped. The 'What's New' document is copyrighted and by using the GTAC support site, anyone who downloads it will automatically be doing so under the terms of their maintenance agreement (this is why I've not uploaded a copy here). For anyone not able to access the GTAC site, there will be collateral material available when we get closer to the official launch of NX 8.0, which due to situations beyond our control, will not actually happen for another month or so despite the fact that the software is currently available to at least existing licensees of NX.
