July 2003
Starting with new service release v.4.1g LaymanPro now supports AutoCAD 2004-2006 and LT 2004-2006 - based on several bugfixes and  improvements on usability and performance, LayerManager works on all AutoCAD 14-2006 and LT 2000-2006..
 
since October 2002
Starting with Service Release v4.1d, LayerManager now utilizes our new LTE2000 kernel technology to run inside AutoCAD LT; the former versions LT 97/98 are no longer supported.
Since Publishing our LT-Extender 2000 there is no real need to keep the very similar functionality still maintained in Layermanager - therefore we removed those 'LT-Extending' features with version v4.1d.
