we are working towards a shorter cadence between updates to help us release improvements and bug fixes sooner - and I hope you agree this has worked very well.

Absolutely agree this development cycle is the way to go. The number of improvements and fixes since 2.0 release has been incredible. Congrats to the Affinity fam for a great release and listening to users' feedback!

Perhaps you want to take into account that there was a holiday break and the developers deserved some time out as well?

We are planning to release a 2.3.1 patch to address a handful of important things and then start 2.4.0 beta.

We think it's important to address a few high customer impact bugs quickly in a 2.3.1 release, in a fast/stable manner.

The release of 2.4.0 with improvements and features and many fixes will likely take a while to be "release ready" (need a longer beta testing cycle due to having more significant code changes).

We have builds for both 2.3.1 and 2.4.0 in internal testing at the moment. I would expect these to both be with you in the first half of this month

Thank you for giving us more information. It is really appreciated. Looking forward to the new functions(and hopefully long-awaited blend tool).

Those of us who use Affinity for something serious in a production environment certainly appreciate Serif prioritising a stability improvement first, so that we work in the best possible product until we can install 2.4.x, and no, it won't be 2.4.0 for good reasons. It may end up being a long while, so yes to the thoroughness and patience of adulthood.

I simply no longer believe that there are any professional graphic designers here. Everything follows suit. Just everything.

I am doubly appreciative:

  1. Of this approach to get fixes out in a patch rather than waiting for the next feature update (which itself is more likely to have issues).
  2. That you have been giving us an estimate of upcoming progress.
