  1. Status: Beta Purpose: Updates and Fixes Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher Windows Store: Not submitted Download: Download Auto-update: Available Hi, We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher Customer Beta 1.8.4.687 is now available as a download from the link above. If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. This beta is an incremental update to the 1.8.3 version recently released to all customers (though it installs parallel to the release). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below. --- Improvements and Fixes - Stability and Performance improvements Further fixes, made since the release of 1.8.3, are listed in earlier 1.8.4 betas --- To be notified about all future Windows beta updates, please follow this notification thread To be notified when this Publisher update comes out of beta and is fully released to all Publisher customers, please follow this thread

  5. Hi (All), I see what you mean, the 1.8.3 betas can't validate against an installed 1.8.3 because they pre-date it. We will have to put some thought into this as it isn't satisfactory.
  6. We don't check the 'patch' version, i.e. third field, so any 1.8.x.x (Beta) should be OK. Are the options not available for you?

  9. Hi abarkalo, We've recently relaxed the requirement and StudioLink should now work across patch level releases, i.e. you should find a mix of 1.8.3 and 1.8.4 betas should work together. If you do try it, and they don't, please let us know.

  12. I usually delay enabling auto-update for around 24 hours after the initial download is announced just in case there are any issues that appear to be affecting a lot of customers. Auto-update for this build is enabled now.
