ArchVision Dashboard 2.0[beta] Update Released

ArchVision Dashboard 2.0[beta] released today. Beta user feedback continues to be incorporated.
Key features include:
Autodesk Revit Drag & Drop
In addition to AutoCAD, 3ds Max and 3ds Max Design, Revit 2013 & 2014 now support RPC Drag & Drop. Local RPC Content may be dragged from Dashboard directly into your Revit 2013 or 2014 scene. We invite you check out this quick tutorial to see how it works and learn a couple tricks along the way:

To enable Drag & Drop your RPC Content must be local and recognized as local by Dashboard and Revit. The thumbnail icon provides you an indicator so you can easily know the status.
License management is now in the cloud! All RPC Plug-ins require a Dashboard on the same machine and the RPC Plug-in simply needs to point to your local Dashboard.
Node-lock licenses
Upon login your license will be detected and reflected in your Dashboard.
Floating licenses
Upon login, Dashboard will detect and check out an available floating license.
Local RPC Content
Dashboard scans and detects RPC Content. Local and custom content will populate. If you have custom RPC Content, a Custom RPC Channel will appear and populate with those objects. The scan occurs at start-up and when paths are added. Currently, we recommend you add a path to the specific folder(s) for an optimal experience.
