I've had a chance to poke around R2011 a little further, and there are (still) a few things that don't work well - or at all. So here's a short (and propably incomplete) list:
The help states that exp(x) is e to the power of x. So exp(1) should be e (2.7182818...)

As with Revit 2010, the guys at the factory realized that you will be using a few commands all the time. And if you don't like keyboard shortcuts, you want these commands quickly accessable - all the time.
Enter the Quick Access Bar. Here you can place any command-icon you want. Up until now, this was as far as it went. Sorting or dividing the icons was not possible.
This has changed. You can now edit to your hearts contend, simply by clicking the down arrow next to the last icon in you Quick Access Bar.
As I am using the bar quite a bit, I was vary happy to see this.
But what I really found interesting, is that most of the icons that are now displayed out of the box are the ones that I had installed in R2010. Funny that.

Well, Revit 2011 is now installed on my computer and I've been browsing thourgh it for a little while.
Here are a few things that I've noticed right off the bat, which I think are interesting. I'll make a few of these posts, each with a topic.
Today I'll start with the Ribbon:
Also, the modify-tab will stay open and in the same place whichever element you select.
Most notably: the selector for the family type has vanished from the Ribbon and is now housed with the element properties in an extra window. More on that later.
This new setup needs some adjusting, but is more consistent. I like that the modify-tab stays open, and even if I have already started a copy-command I can still change it to rotate. On the other hand to stack the icons in ones, twos or threes makes the Ribbon seem cluttered. So I'm still a bit on the fence on this.

Well, it seems the April 8th-date was a bit premature for the 2011 release.
But it is finally happening and it looks like I'll be playing Revit 2011 over the weekend. :)
Expect more posts on R2011 in the near future.
