When will Hype 4.0 be released?


(Marcus) #11

Still nada?

:stuck_out_tongue:


(Carol) #12

To confirm, does the free upgrade only apply to those purchasing through Tumult store, or does it also apply to those purchasing through Mac App Store?


(Jonathan Deutsch) #13

I don’t think it will be possible to give these upgrades through the app store itself, but we will have a method that you can get a Tumult Store copy.


#14

So no release date for 4.0 yet? :frowning:


(Jonathan Deutsch) #15

We don’t have a specific date, but are wrapping up. You are still welcome to use the beta by signing up.

com-optimize

:open_mouth:

hence the reason that no specific time is given. :slight_smile:

I feel we’re close. :nail_biting:

Sorry for pushing this thread but I had hoped sooo much that Tumult would have set a hard goal to force release 4.0 in 2018. seams like that is just passing bye. I really hope release cycles will be more frequent and (the pro version) will include more pro stuff (datasets, markers, attachSymbol, dublicateSymbol, more API like properties for code animation etc.)… in 2019! Happy new year to all of you!


(Tudor Vedeanu) #21

Are new beta testers still accepted? I’d love to try the new vector animation tools in Hype 4 for a potential infographic project (I applied for the beta in December).

See, this guy get it. :smile:

If you’re frustrated by how long it’s taking to get Hype 4.0 launched, just try to get in the beta.

I’m going to defend Tumult on this one. Without going into much detail… it is beta after all… I think the Hype 4 beta of January 2019 is much better than the one from January 2018. I think launching earlier would have been a mistake. Tumult made the right move and decided to put extra work into the software. That’s a hard choice for a developer. But wow, the ******** **** ******* feature didn’t exist and it’s amazing. I’m also glad Tumult is putting more work into ******* and the **** **** ********** features.

I’m not having to update my skills for v.4 to rocket scientist levels I hope? :thinking:

I still remember the days I made webpages out of table rows and cells… :kissing_heart:


(Jonathan Deutsch) #24

Yes! Check your email. Thanks!

(Our process to send out invite batches is a little more manual than I’d like; So it is typically done about once a month. We pretty much send it to everyone who has applied.)


(Mark Hunte) #25

Lol. Me to, funny thing is still use them every now an then…


(Stephen O'Callaghan) #26

Could I apply for beta tester? Any release date on the update yet?
Thanks,


(Jonathan Deutsch) #27

Nope! Hype v4 primarily only adds features, all your existing knowledge will still apply to the existing feature set. Of course with the new features, there will probably be better ways of doing some things.


(Jonathan Deutsch) #28

You can apply here; we’ll be adding another batch of testers in a week or so. There’s no official date, but we’re in the final stretch of development.


(Branko Popovic) #29

I applied for beta testing 3 weeks ago but haven’t heard back - should I reapply?


(Cam) #30

Not sure how I missed this thread… I also signed up for the beta. Finally! I’m super excited for this release! These new features will be so helpful and awesome! Quick question.

Will the External Resource Editing include editing in Sketch?

Keep up the great work Tumult team!
