Version 10 out?

Version 10 out?

Version 10 out?

I just got a friendly little popup saying version 10 was released.

What's in it?  As a long time XP-SWMM user, I'm terrified to upgrade if my current version is working, which it is.

RE: Version 10 out?

Yes, HydroCAD-10 has been released.  If you follow the link in the check-for-update message it will give you a run-down on the new features:  www.hydrocad.net/info10.htm

In brief:

With HydroCAD-10, you can use local rainfall data from NOAA, NRCC, and other sources to define rainfall events, create IDF files, and even generate synthetic rainfall distributions. You can also import rainfall data from a TR-20 file, or use the expanded rainfall library and event lookup table.

New outlet devices include tubes and siphons, float-activated valves, skimmers, constant-flow devices, asymmetrical weirs, and even a progressive dam breach starting at a specified time or WSE.

Watershed data can be imported and exported to CSV (spreadsheet) format, or you can directly import subarea data from an AutoCAD® drawing. Just map the subcatchments, soil groups, and ground covers, and import with a single click! You can even map land-use for pollutant loading calculations. And everything is built-in at no extra cost.

The chamber library has been expanded and updated, with automatic handling of end-caps and pipe headers. We've also added new reports, a text/image node to let you enhance the routing diagram, an arch pipe lookup table, updated Owner's Manual, and much more!

HydroCAD-10 can open projects from any prior release with consistent results.

RE: Version 10 out?

I'm not sure about your previous experience with XP-SWMM updates, but you'll be very happy with the HydroCAD-10 update process.  All the previous features are still there, right where you expect them to be.  We've just added a lot more new capabilities.
