Title: Another update today for AD
Post by: Linda2 on March 05, 2018, 06:55:48 am
On my second re-opening of AD this morning I got an update notice for v.1.6.4.104
I had just  done the other one on 3/1/18. I just finished d/ling and installing but have not had time to actually see what was changed this time.  Wow, this one must have been to fix some glitch since it was so quick behind the other one.  Anyone notice anything different yet?

The same with Affinity Photo - just istalled a new version and now today, it's another one!!  Must have had some bad things in the last one!  I don't think we'll really see any differences, I think these updates are mostly bug fixes.

I got the notice too. Based on what I've read here, I may wait and see. I'm using 1.6.2.97 and loving it. I'd hate to jinx myself. I'm looking forward to others comments.

When they put out new updates within 2 days, that's usually a pretty good indication that there was a problem with the first one. I always get the latest one.  Have them downloaded but not installed.  Will do that before I go to bed.

One thing I noticed, they load faster!

I think you are right Grethe.  I have not had any real opening problems with the last one or two....that said however I do think AD opens faster with this one.  I am more than likely tempting fate also to say that I have not had any freezes or outright crashes when using AD in a good long while now.  Fingers crossed this continues.

I downloaded the 1.6.4 upgrade, but haven't installed it yet. They posted a change list on their board. Most of the things listed are "fixes", not changes.

It's on their board under the heading news and information.

I don't care what they call it I want it if it makes loading faster

oh... 44 seconds for a first opening....   its better than  the full 2 minutes I can take.

Well despite earlier comments about update 103 not causing any issues, AD crashed a couple of times last night. So I am pleased to see that there is now another update to fix that one! lol 

Incidentally after updating to 103, AD took almost two minutes to load, the longest in my experience. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to load after the 104 update.

Hello all, this update has solved my problem of designer and photo crashing when trying to run from start which happened on the last update. I had to revert to earlier editions to be able to use them. I think it had to do with people using different types of tablet. Have now downloaded latest update for photo and everything works fine. Will try designer in a while.

Ok - I installed it. Just like a kid with with a new toy, can't resist ripping into it.
