  1. This is the case for beta releases which are managed by the Store, which to date has only been for Publisher. For Designer and Photo, on macOS and Windows, all betas have always been served direct from Amazon S3.
  2. The betas are hosted with Amazon S3 in East Virginia, USA. The store versions use CloudFront to distribute the files to locations around the World to speed up the download. If the beta downloads slowly, it will be your ISPs connection to the S3 location in USA.
  3. Thanks - I think you might need to get the sharing URL for that file, as it requires me to login to download it. Was it crashpad_handler that was hanging?
  4. One thing missing from the changelist (as I snuck it in at the last minute...): Added support for per-monitor ICC profiles (previously we only used the primary monitor's ICC profile) in the document view (controls still use the primary monitor's ICC profile, which will hopefully be fixed in the future).

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.7.0.178

  6. I agree - having old irrelevant posts from previous betas serves little purpose.
  7. When you experience a hang, you can create a crash dump via Task Manager, and upload it to Dropbox or similar, then we can take a look at the hang.
  8. Ah. Right, that setting is just for presenting the document to the screen, the work of rendering the content is still done on the CPU. We do have plans for GPU acceleration, I have started it, but the trouble with Windows is, there is far greater variation in potential hardware, in comparison to the macOS ecosystem.

    Beta .178 asks for Valid Product Key

    When you install the application, the installer writes the destination path to the registry, and the beta version will look for a licence in that path. However, I've just realised this will only work if you installed it before we updated the installer to the new simpler installer (black UI). The licence file is written to a different location now, not where you install the application. It's not a major problem as you can just re-enter your details, but we should log this to make it simpler.
  10. The Windows versions don't support GPU acceleration currently.

    Beta .178 asks for Valid Product Key

    Not all localisations are in yet, so some things may still appear in English only. @Mithferion, do you have Affinity Designer installed from the Microsoft Store?

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta - 1.7.0.178

    The downloads are hosted on Amazon's S3 service, in East Virginia, USA. So if the download is slow, it's possibly your ISP's connection to that location :-).
