Dxf import in Blender 2.5?


I am very new to Blender and I don’t know if that’s the right place to ask, sorry if it’s not (I already took a look at bug report, but since it’s not a bug itself, I didn’t want to use it).

My question is very simple: Since I am interested in using blender for architecture purpose there are two things that I am missing from previous versions:

  1. Dwg or dxf files import
  2. Procedural brick materials

although I know 2.5 is an alpha, I didn’t figure out what are the functions that are missing and/or if there will be some that will be ommited (sorry, but the descriptions at this page are too general for me).

Thanks for the information

There is a discussion on importing DXFs in this thread: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=189354

is there any possibility to EXPORT as dxf, or dwg from blender 2.5 ???
