This beta looks to have been "cooking" for a long time. Is there any liklihood of a release version in the near/ish future? The stated file incompatibility is a major issue.

Serif generally won't say when the release will occur.

I will mentiont that they are still implementing new functions (e.g., the New file dialog is quite recent on Windows, and support for Photoshop Smart Objects was just made available), as well as fixes for problems. And they just released the first beta for Photo on iPad (none yet for Designer on iPad).

So I would expect it's still going to be awhile (1-2 months?), but that's just a guess. And sometimes they have surprised me :)

Discovered that the PSD smart object support is also in Windows.

@Chris B This emoji is way too small. Is this saliva dropping from your mouth?

It's a zipped mouth.

We don't comment on release dates. If we suggested a date and missed it, people would be on the forums and social media complaining to us, so it's just easier to not do it!

Smart Objects, which has not gotten to Windows yet

You can enable it from Preferences > General > Import PSD smart objects where possible. It's off by default for some reason. I'll find out why!

Yes, I just discovered that it's present. I missed that in the last beta announcement.

(And yes, it's off by default, I believe. Possibly for consistency?)

However, as noted elsewhere, it seems not to work on Windows even when enabled, and it was not announced as a Windows enhancement yet:

I noticed just after posting my reply 😓 The UI was added before the functionality. Not quite sure why that happened...

Fair enough. I think I'll await the official release.
