This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are using the latest version on your platform.  The thread is now locked to if you "follow" it you will know then we release a new version on any platform.

Release notes

If you are looking for the equivalent beta build numbers please refer to these threads

Affinity Version Numbering

Windows build numbers and MacOS builds are independent.
The third number increases each time a public release is made, so Windows and Mac builds have simply been released a different number of times (sometimes to fix OS specific problems) 

Affinity Designer Windows 1.7 has had 1 public version: 1.7.0
( 1.6 had 6 versions: 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 )

Affinity Designer MacOS 1.7 has had 1 public version: 1.7.0
( 1.6 had 2 versions: 1.6.0, 1.6.1 (and 1.6.2 PK - 1.6.5 PK  on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers )

Affinity Photo Windows 1.7 has had 1 public version: 1.7.0
( 1.6 had 6 versions: 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 )

Affinity Photo MacOS 1.7 has had 1 public version: 1.7.0 
( 1.6 had 2 versions: 1.6.6, 1.6.7 (and 1.6.8 PK - 1.6.11 PK on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers) )

Affinity Designer for iPad 1.7 has had 1 public release: 1.7.0
( 1.6 had 5 versions: 1.6.0, 1.6.1 1.6.2, 1.6.3 & 1.6.4, but is based on the latest released codebase (technically ahead of desktop 1.6 releases) )

Affinity Photo for iPad 1.7 has had 1 public release: 1.7.0
( 1.6 had 11 versions: 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3, 1.6.4, 1.6.5, 1.6.7, 1.6.8, 1.6.9, 1.6.10, 1.6.11 & 1.6.12 (similar codebase to 1.6.4 iPad Designer) )

[Please note that Microsoft Store presents the build number slightly differently so 1.7.0.367 can also appear as a store update as 10700.367.0.0]

 

Windows Photo 1.7.0 is approximately the same codebase as Mac Photo 1.7.0. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above]
Windows Designer 1.7.0  is approximately the same codebase as Mac Designer 1.7.0. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above]
So Windows and Mac version numbers differing from time to time simply means a different number of patches/builds released since a major update.

 

Installation of Software and Updates

Paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. New versions are notified within the application when it is first run and updates are done manually by installing the new version over the old. (Only the Mac versions from the Affinity Store needs manually uninstalling first, all other versions will install over the top of the old one)

Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a key and are updated through the relevant store. This is not always simultaneous around the world and updates are often rolled progressively by the store out so if you cannot see an update once announced here, don't worry or make a support ticket, just check back as they will normally appear for all users within 24 hours of first release.

This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff as the released versions change.  Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind and needs updating please PM me.

Although Serif have not got any new RELEASE builds right now (which is the main purpose of this thread), please don't forget to check out our Beta forums if you would like to.

For owners of Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo desktop builds, we often release customer beta builds. The beta builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched.

If you would like to try the Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums:

Before we launch Affinity Publisher, if you are interested in trying Publisher please add a download to your store account here . The pre-release download is free and available for anyone to see if this new application will be right for you. Also keep an eye on the top pinned thread in these beta forums, for news of fixes, new file formats and additional features and early access to new build download links.
