Not a question, just share personal experience of the latest release ArcGIS Pro 1.4 with all.
Just install and evaluate ArcGIS Pro 1.4 with some long-waiting cases, which looks excellent …
ArcGIS Pro 1.4 really is a breakthrough release, from operational perspectives.
Thanks for great efforts, ESRI.
With many advances in IT for a decade, many GIS users have been painfully waiting for ArcGIS solutions to effectively tackle the following operational challenges, particularly last 5 years:
- CAD 2D data georeferencing,
- 3D GIS creating and editing (i.e., multipatch from CityEngine),
- CAD and COLLADA 3D models georefrencing,
- Enable developers to conveniently install new Python packages (saying, scikit-image, scikit-learn, openCV), and easily configure for popular and familiar Python Development IDEs (i.e., PTVS, Spyder),
- GPU accelerated geoprocessing tools in ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS (i.e., raster image processing like caching, classified raster imagery generalization and associated vector conversion & clean-up),
- R integrating and scaling seamlessly with ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS (i.e., MRS), which is currently thorough “R - ArcGIS Bridge” for MRO (https://r-arcgis.github.io/), and
- Support of major deep machine learning frameworks with GPU computing in ArcGIS Pro and ArcGIS, especially, in Python and R (i.e., DIGITS)
With ArcGIS Pro 1.4, we can eventually do some right now:

- Multipatch creating and editing http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/create-multipatch-features.htm andhttp://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/help/editing/modify-a-multipatch-feature.htm
- Via Python Package Manager, easily install and configure new Python packages for Python Development IDEs http://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/arcpy/get-started/what-is-conda.htm
