OS X Mavericks

Post by axys »

Is the beta being tested using the forthcoming Mavericks? Will this mean a further delay? Will this update ever see the light of day - sorry, but this has been going on for so long I can't help but feel somewhat disillusioned about support and future development. Why can't we at least have a regular progress report?

Couldn't agree more. I am very sad to see this once great app with such potential just floundering without any real prospect. At this rate we'll be at OSXI before we see a real HD update...

The tests on Maverick are planned for the first update, this Fall, so we can focus on releasing the new HighDesign as soon as possible.
The current beta is very usable and only needs a few touches before being distributed to the testers, but we do not feel comfortable giving a release date yet. Even though it is a beta version, we know the testers will likely use it for production projects and we want them to have a safe product that will not alter their work. Since there are no other betas planned after this one, we want it to be as production-ready as possible.

Thank you for your patience. We understand your feelings very well and I can assure you we are working hard to make HighDesign an even greater app!

Sorry for the late reply Macitect!
Some things we have been working on lately: support for Retina displays; tests on Mavericks; DXF/DWG 2013 compatibility; speed optimizations; pattern editing; hatch and polyline editing; better text rendering.
We are currently testing the beta version before releasing it to the beta testers, so, big news coming!

Has anyone download Mavericks?

If so, how is HD doing on the new operating system? It is enticing to upgrade (especially since it is free) but would like to know how it will affect HD before i do.
