There have been a number of recent inquiries surrounding c2k updates of Solidworks. The good news is that the wait for SW2009 is nearly over.
The new version of Solidworks which is currently being tested, will include a DWG editor (and extensive additional drawing package) as well as student access. It is anticipated that the software will be available towards the end of September, early October. UPDATE - It looks like it may now be the end of October.
