Serif allow customers to test new builds of the software even before it is released to the public. These "beta" builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are trying the latest beta version of the Affinity software on your platform.
Product Name | Platform | Beta Ver. | ===========================|==================|===============| Affinity Designer 2 beta | MacOS 10.15-13 | 184.108.40.206 | Affinity Photo 2 beta | MacOS 10.15-13 | 220.127.116.116 | Affinity Publisher 2 beta | MacOS 10.15-13 | 18.104.22.1684 |
MacOS Customer Betas require you to be an owner of the paid for version of the software to work. You either need to have the software installed on the same computer as the customer beta OR if you bought direct from the affinity store website you can provide the product key to activate the beta. If you would like to try the MacOS Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums:
Windows build numbers and Mac builds are technically independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, the last number is generated by a build server and so not directly related to each other.
I will update/edit this post as new MacOS Beta releases are added by the developers.
This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff when the beta release versions are updated. Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind announcing the MacOS beta updates and needs updating please PM me.
