Visual Building v5 is now released. (20th July 2014). The following shows the main new features, but an overview of all features is listed here.

64 Bit Version
Previous versions of Visual Building were 32 bit programs, and were therefore limited to running in 32 bit mode, even if you had a 64 Bit hardware and a 64 Bit Windows. This is why Visual Building installed in Program Files (x86) on a 64 Bit system. If you have a 64 Bit System then Visual Building v5 will now be installed as a 64 Bit application and acquire all the performance advantages of a 64 Bit application. This is especially of importance for large projects that now have access to all your available RAM.

Applicable to: Visual Building Basic v5, Visual Building Professional v5 and Visual Building Premium v5

User Defined Fill
As of Visual Building Premium v5, the Visual Building Professional and Premium versions have extended 2D fill properties. Wherever you previously had the option to fill a 2D area from the limited Windows 2D pattern list, you can also easily now create your own patterns from 2D symbols.
