Revit Timeline from 1.0 to 2019.2

Every since I began documenting AutoCAD history and codenames, AutoCAD Command history, and Autodesk history I have been asked to also do the same and publish other products. Today I am adding Revit to that list and reached out to our awesome Revit team for some of the data they had. I have made sense of some of the major branch versions over the years while not all WIP builds are documented at this time.

Feel free to email me any updates you are aware of.

Cheers,
Shaan

Autodesk to Acquire Revit Technology Corporation; Acquisition Adds Complementary Technology for Building Industry

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. and WALTHAM, Mass., Feb 21, 2002 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK), the leading design software and digital content company, today announced its intention to acquire Revit Technology Corporation, a Massachusetts-based developer of parametric building technology for building design, construction, and management, for $133 million cash. The addition of Revit software complements Autodesk's existing family of building industry applications with a parametric building modeler for customers to design, coordinate, and integrate information about an entire building. The closing of the acquisition is subject to governmental and shareholder approvals.

"The acquisition will extend our reach to new customers while expanding our existing building industry business," said Carol Bartz, Autodesk chairman and CEO. "Our product line will offer the best drafting and model-based design capabilities on the market, ultimately helping designers, builders, and owners better track and manage their building assets."  Deal closed April 1, 2001.
