Corel Vector discussion

Whats changed in version i008?

As we no longer have a change log it would be nice to know what’s changed in i008 and did I miss version i007? It jumped from i006.1 to 8

Basically more back-end fixes, translations, properly redirecting to the new URL, rebranding URLs fixed, testing, this kind of thing.

007 tasks were “merged” into 008. Most of them were back-end so “no visible improvements” for the users, but things were necessary for future tasks.

I’m sorry for being “generic” but really, those tasks wouldn’t be exciting for you.

Yes, I agree, boring stuff for many end users. But it’s important we understand what has changed, this is after all software many of us have paid for and are using in a production environment

Some of us have also reported many bugs and suggestions and it’s a pain to have to keep checking did this bug or that bug get suddenly fixed so I can do what I need to or do it a better way

Talking of generic fixes. Your aware I’m sure that the ‘Blog’ link of the welcome screen goes to the generic Corel Vector page as does ‘Changelog’ (which you said is no longer going to be updated, I personally can’t for the life of me see the logic of that!)

Still hanging in there waiting for these ‘big things that are coming in the future’. I didn’t miss them, did I?

I’ll let you know when there’s something interesting.

Yeah, I know how it feels and I’m sorry about that, but there is no ETA for fixing a specific bug. When new bugs are fixed I’ll be the first to talk about them so those who reported them are aware and can test them as well.

Nice catch, we’ve removed this very same link from another page today but we missed this one. Thanks for that. This, for example, will be a new task and I might tell you about it as “back-end things” (removing those broken links) - about the changelog, unfortunately I don’t have an answer (why) for that.

You did not miss it but big changes require lots of efforts so, please bear with us.

Thanks for that Daniel

I guess my expectation for generic/behind the scenes updates that dont affect the end users or offer enhancements would be a point release not a full number like I assume 6.1 was

What are the changes for i009?

Boring back-end stuff.
(Preparations needed for the next releases.)
