When will Hype 4.0 be released?


(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:

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.)

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,

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.

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.
