Yep I looked there first.  There isn't one for 1.6.3 that I can find.

 

As far as I know (by looking at the downloaded and numbered files on my harddrive) the latest official release is V1.6.1.93

 

Shortly after that a new beta cycle was startet which is currently at betaV1.6.3.103.

You can read the release notes of this particular version here (which are very limited).

 

If you want to read all other release notes of the versions before you'd have to look through the beta forum for posts like 'Affinity Designer Customer Beta - 1.6.3.102'

There is no compiled list of all changes within a beta cycle.

That's odd.  Because it was Affinity itself that told me there was a new version available yesterday and the updates page has it

https://affinity.store/en-gb/update/windows/designer/1/

 

 

I did not receive this notification (yet) and this changes what I said above. Sorry for the wrong information :$

I do not find an official announcement for the 1.6.3. version.

 

We'll have to wait and see if it turns up within the next hours.

I also received the auto-update prompt on stable on both my devices, and am now running 1.6.3.103 over 1.6.1.

 

This release is in the beta subforum, but as above I can't see any round-up of all the changes introduced, or any announcement that it's a stable release. Was this pushed by mistake?

 

Can't say I'm complaining... finally, this seems to be usable with my Surface Pen.

Core m3 Surface (2017), I've been trying to use raster brushes for scribbling wireframes for weeks, but the "lag for a second after starting drawing" bug proved unbearable.

Since installing 1.6.3.103, this lag seems to have disappeared, and AD writes as smoothly with the pen as Windows Ink Workspace does!

 

Let's just hope it lasts; seems to be a great update so far, even if maybe wasn't meant to go to stable...

The auto-update for 1.6.3.103 was briefly live yesterday but has been turned off again as we are concerned for the number of Huion tablet users who would not be able to run the software. If you wish you can manually download 1.6.3.103 from your Affinity Store account right now, but we would recommend waiting for 1.6.3.104 beta (and hopefully release) that Mark is referring to here with a fix for the problem drivers that do not work with the latest .NET tablet calls (just made available to fix Surface Pro Pen issues)
