    How important are build numbers?

    So I'm not super old-school but I have been using Revit since release 9.0. Over the years there are many things that have come into question about Revit that seem to be part of what I call Revit Mythology. The one that would be nice to put to rest is Build #'s!!!

    The way I learned it was that Revit would shoot tiny daggers from the keyboard at any one who was not on the same build as the rest of the team. Sooner rather than later, the Revit Model would mutate and implode moments later.

    The flip side of the coin seems to be the closest thing that we have ever gotten to a commitment on the matter from Autodesk...
    "I’ve researched this with development and support; we do not have a list of things that will happen in a mixed build environment. While mixing builds could in some cases cause problems, we have no specific cause/effect triggers related to mixing builds.

    In general, if everyone is on the same release, mixing builds should not cause problems. That being the case, there’s still a point to keep in mind - if a fix is released for a specific build, users on different builds won’t be able to benefit from the fix until they upgrade to the build for which the fix was created."

    Working for a really big company with dozens of offices with Revit users approaching 1K it would sure be easier to deploy Revit automatically. Take care of the whole company instead of one project team at a time.

    I would love to get more history and other peoples experience with this one. Especially since 2012 products are right around the corner.
