You could also download a copy of dwgtrueview from Autodesk to convert to an earlier version. It is free, and both a viewer and a converter. Of course, if they stopped messing with the format, then they wouldn't have to make a converter...

I need to access a DWG file in Autocad 2008 (dwg) format.


Does anyone know how to do it with an open-source application?


gvSIG opens DWG 2000. But further versions of DWG are encrypted and
their format are more than closed.


I'm really fed up with these closed requirements!


Any help will be appretiated. Even for crying purposes.
