Well some may argue otherwise, but all the official markers have been met. Daylight Savings has returned (or has it ended?), the Easter Bunny has made his rounds, the boys of summer have returned to slug it out on the field, and SolidWorks has opened registration for its 2008 Beta Testing.
Now just in case you haven't read about it on the blog of Brian McElyea, or Ricky Jordan, or Matt Lombard, or Anna Wood, or Rob Rodriguez, I provided you a link above! I listed all of them also to give you a quick chance to check out their blogs anyways since they are all overflowing with valuable Solidworks info!
Now what they didn't tell you is that there are two web casts coming up that will help launch the entire program (so much for being one of the first to report the beta program opening, huh guys?). So if you are able to sign up, and have the time, I encourage everyone of you to do so. It gives you the chance to see and test the new version before everyone else.
