KDOT CONNECT Workspace 10.10

Version 10.10.01

Supported Applications

Download 10.10.01

(Released 8/24/2022)

This workspace release was developed targeting Civil Schema 2021 Release 2 (10.10), which is a major release requiring an update to the underlying design file civil schema. The workspace installer supports extraction of the workspace without the need to have a product installed. Please refer to the updated KDOT Workspace Deployment Guide (included in the download) for more details and troubleshooting guidance.

**Important**
The decision to migrate an existing project to this new workspace must be carefully considered. A potential project migration should be discussed with the KDOT Project Manager to weigh the risks and benefits to ALL project participants. The KDOT Project Manager has the ultimate say on whether a project should be migrated or kept in 10.08 civil schema, so care should be exercised to use the appropriate version of any Bentley Civil platform products to avoid issues.

Development Updates

 

 

8/22/2022

During pre-release testing of our v10.10.01 KDOT CONNECT Workspace, we identified some issues with side-by-side configuration of 10.08 and 10.10 products that had to be resolved, causing further delay to our estimated release window. We are expecting to have this release packaged up and published by the end of this week. 

 

7/22/2022

Since our previous workspace release in April, all workspace development (barring any necessary hotfixes) has been completed in 10.10 Civil Schema leveraging Bentley’s 2021 R2 series of civil design applications. Development of the v10.10.01 release of the KDOT CONNECT Workspace has concluded as of July 15th, 2022. This is roughly two weeks behind our initial target date due to concurrent development, testing, packaging, and publishing of priority hotfix content for our 10.08 workspace. It is expected this delay will be reflected in the publish date as well, which is now targeting the 2nd week of August.

 

4/1/2022

All workspace development (barring any necessary hotfixes) has now shifted to 10.10 Civil Schema leveraging Bentley’s 2021 R2 series of civil design applications. Development on a v10.10.01 release of the KDOT CONNECT Workspace is expected to wrap up by July 1st, 2022 with a workspace publish by the end of July.
