2.1.1 Release Candidate. 2.1.1.1847 Beta to test


Recommended Posts

  • Staff

Following the release of version 2.1.0 of the Affinity suite, we have fixed a number of problems that were discovered after it's release. A full list of the fixes are found in this post and we would appreciate you installing this beta build and confirming that this version works as well for you as 2.1.0 but with those issues addressed. 

We are hoping that no newly introduced bugs are discovered in this 2.1.1 beta and if nothing significant is discovered we are likely to do a full release of 2.1.1 to all customers very soon. Please report any problems you find in this Beta bugs forum

2.1.1.1847 is now available as a beta either as an update from the last beta (2.1.0.1799/1806) or as a full download from the beta entitlement in your account. If you have not already done so please help make our apps better by joining our beta program!

NOTE: The 2.1.1.1847 iPad betas builds for Designer 2 and Publisher 2 are available in Testflight now and Photo 2 iPad beta 2.1.1.1847 will follow shortly (once Apple wake up in the US and approve it)

Thanks

Patrick

What about cross references? Are they in this Beta?

No, Cross References have been withdrawn until 2.2, sorry. In the same way as Cross References were removed for the last few 2.1.0 Release candidate builds, they are not included in this release, which is solely focussing on bug fixing issues introduced in 2.1.0. However we hope to start the 2.2.0 beta cycle very soon

Edit: 2.1.0.1799 did not prompt for update to 2.1.1.1847 until I checked for updates.

Do you usually run the beta, or the release version?

The automatic check happens only once per day. Thus, if you already had the .1799 beta running in the 24-hour period when the .1847 beta became available, it might have already checked and found nothing.

Well, that's answers that question. That was only question at this point. My other apps (Photo& Publisher) prompted. Thanks Walt. Best

The Photo 2 iPad beta 2.1.1.1847 still seems to be missing, Patrick. Any further news on its availability?

How will it work with beta versions of 2.1.x and 2.2.x simultaneously? Can they be installed simultaneously?

I imagine there will be more betas of small fixes for 2.1.x after the 2.2.x beta is also released.

You are right, you cannot do that easily. Once 2.2.0 is in beta we are unlikely to do further customer betas of 2.1.x, but if we need to release a 2.1.2 patch (for example) we will likely test it only internally or in a small private beta group who agree to uninstall 2.2.0 beta first

Concerning the beta versions (that I wish to try), if we have a problem with a file, can we still use the previous officially released version ? Right now I'm on 2.0.4, I'm hesitating to go for 2.1 (because of launch time…) but I'd like to do it and even go for the 2.1 beta and even more for the 2.2 beta in the future…

Well, if I open my file in the 2.1 or 2.1 beta or 2.2 beta and if I encounter a problem a little later, AFTER having already "re-saved" the file in those version, will I still be able to open my file in 2.0.4 ? I think not… but could I have your confirmation ?

I'm always "scared" to go for the next version but I'd really would go for it, even for the beta versions… !!!

I wanted to add, I went to real production last month (for the first time) and everything was a success, so THANKS AFFINITY, YOU'RE REALLY DOING A FANTASTIC JOB !!!

i definitely quit Adobe and QuarkXpress… too expensive and not always that good !

2.0 cannot open files saved by 2.1. Neither 2.0 nor 2.1 should be able to open files saved by 2.2 (beta or release), if 2.2 operates as expected based on the version numbering. That second number (the part after the first dot) is part of the compatibility indicator for the file formats.

2.1.0 would be able to open files saved by the 2.1.1 beta or release applications, because the numbers before the second dot are the same.

Hi, Doesn't seem to be available as a download from the account as of yet.

UPDATE: The Beta download doesn't state the Version in the list of downloads, but downloading the EXE and looking at the properties displays the correct version.

Yes, the labeling on the site could be better. It was confusing that it still said 2.1.0 rather than 2.1.1.

The automatic check happens only once per day. Thus, if you already had the .1799 beta running in the 24-hour period when the .1847 beta became available, it might have already checked and found nothing.

So, we will never prompt for update if we check more times in a day? This is not a good solution.

As I understand it, the automatic check is only made once a day so that people who don't want to update immediately are not pestered to do so. However, there is nothing to stop you checking manually if you want to.

Yes, I know. But I also know that every other software prompts for update whenever you start it.
