Hello,

Just wondering what is happening with AP development. It seems to have really slowed down? Is there a major version update in the works?

 

Regards,

Frank

Even though Affinity Designer for iPad and Affinity Publisher for Mac and Windows are both expected in the not too distant future, it’s clear that a great deal of work has already gone into the free 1.7 updates for Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo. Given the small size of the development team, I think they’re doing all they can.

Plus, and in consonance with Alfred's comment, consider that they are making a huge push for releasing a first beta of Affinity Publisher and some other stuff.  You can't do magic even with a small army of ninja-unicorn-cats... ;)

Versions 1.7 of AP and AD are both expected to be with us next year and will contain some new features, maybe not all of which we have heard about in the forum. I think we can only expect bug fixes for version 1.6 until then

If, as Alfred mentions, "Affinity Designer for iPad and Affinity Publisher for Mac and Windows are both expected in the not too distant future" then I would expect future development of all products to then be even slower as there will then be 3 more products to support, maintain and upgrade and the Affinity team is only a small team to do all that work.

It may be best to find alternative ways to do things if the features you want are not in AP at the moment.

Alternative ways either within or outside of AP


Due to the ongoing Brexit negotiations, punctuation, spelling and grammar will be used sparingly until further notice.

Oh, I dunno. I expect that @Mark Ingram and @James Ritson will back you up!

I'm not sure about that. I heard that Serif recently had an extension build to their offices. Not sure why ?

I can imagine Mark complaining: “I said ‘kernel’, not ‘kennel’!” xD

Well, that happens when you let a Spaniard post in English (or Spanglish) . 50% of the times, I dunno how am I sounding..... xDDD

BTW, no way... a Ninja Unicorn Cat will beat a bunch of minions.... as a Ninja, you wouldn't see it coming.... as a unicorn, it could program in 30.458 (give or take) programming languages, and do the UI/UX (easy, basically ponies rainbow colored) and code the AI of an entire army of invincible colorful pony robots, assisted by a column of green Pikachu paladins. Who would beat that. If for some cosmos unbalance, a minion could get close to a ninja unicorn cat, the cat side of it would make it impossible to disturb the thing in its sleep.... (what heartless beast would do that ?)
