EFT Changes

AutoCAD 2007 support (Windows only)

The AutoCAD 2007 format DXF and DWG files are supported for both input and output. AutoCAD versions 11, 12 and 13 have been desupported.

OMAP_SYSLYR Option Added (Windows only)

A new option, OMAP_SYSLYR, has been added to control the creation of certain 'bookkeeping' layers. The default 'YES' will will maintain the behavior of previous releases. If this option is set to 'NO', then certain bookkeeping layers that CCD creates, such as those for each view, will not be created. User defined layers will continue to be mapped regardless of the setting of this option. Another related change is that the 'No-shown Elements' layer will now only be created if there are no-shown elements in the model.
