This is a bug-fixed plus minor enhancements of VectorWorks 11.0. The updaters from 11.0 to 11.01 and then to 11.5 (has to be updated in that order) can be freely downloaded from the application web page.
So far everything works OK, with the usual bumps on the road (see bellow).
Final Quality rendering (with the added RenderWorks plugin) is painfully slow, but works.
Had to install Quicktime, then VW 11.0, then update to 11.01 and finally to 11.50.
All of them install without additional DLLs or special settings.
11.0 installed without incidents but wouldn't open. Lucky the updater doesn't need to launch the app to update it. 11.50 opened on the first try.
What does not
Unless you have configured your Wine fonts, text editing will crash the app.
* Even on Windows, text editing is particullary prone to crashing the app.
As with previous versions, the toolbar icons appear in grayscale, funny considering the colors work OK on the CAD drawing's attributes and color pickers.
