Esri has released a new version of the Arc Hydro Tools, version 2.0.
This is good news for those of you who have been waiting to upgrade your ArcGIS software until the new Arc Hydro Tools are ready. In version 2.0, Arc Hydro tools are now fully compatible with ArcGIS version 10.0.
In addition to full compatibility with the software version 10.0, the new version of the Arc Hydro tools are also now fully available in the geoprocessing environment.
A lot of effort has been put into this release into improving performance for preprocessing large datasets. The new version runs better and faster with larger datasets.
