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 | Windows 10, 11 | 184.108.40.2060 | Affinity Photo 2 beta | Windows 10, 11 | 220.127.116.110 | Affinity Publisher 2 beta | Windows 10, 11 | 18.104.22.1680 |
Please see the last post in this thread for links to posts announcing these beta builds. Those pinned posts have download links to the beta software.
Windows 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 Windows Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums:
- Affinity Designer 2 beta for Windows
- Affinity Photo 2 beta for Windows
- Affinity Publisher 2 beta for Windows
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.
We will update/edit this post as new Windows Beta releases are added by the developers, so the version numbers should always be right. We will also post to the bottom of the thread so the forum sends a notification to anyone who wants one
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 Windows beta updates and needs updating please PM me.
