I thought it'd be great if Juju (responsible of this extremely disturbing thread) would set up some prize for a first one delivering the news about v2019 is out.
One week free trip to South Africa for example :-P

Sounds like a great plan, I have not been home in almost 20 years.

Hahaha, I would love to meet some of the crowd here.

Unfortunately, coming to Cape Town would be much of a case of "Hotel California".

Starting to get a little-bit nervous now. Any news about SU 2019 yet?
Should I renew my maintenance plan, just in order to continue with the same SU 2018?
Although it is not their money maker number 1, I think Trimble is making more bucks with SU nowadays than ever. Why did they stop renovating their product on a regular basis (i.e. every November). What´s the problem here?

development of (3D) software is in general a tedious job which is prone to be postponed because of unexpected issues arising, nothing special one should be upset by.

tl;dr: sit down and relax :fro:

Have not seen any posts to this thread in a while. Seems to me like earlier in the thread someone mentioned that there was going to be a price increase in February so I had a DUH moment. I would not expect any update to the 2019 version until that price increase kicks in.

Hope the wait (and price increase if that is accurate) is worth it.

Yes...
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=70382&start=90#p643293

And we already have a "hidden" price increase for 2019, since the release cycle has been changed from 12 months to 14+ months... (~16%+). And everyone who bought 2018 right after release got nothing for his last "maintenance fee"...

*afaik* a guarantee for a periodic release of new main versions is not promised.

I held off on paying the maintenance fee, and at this rate, Trimble *really* doesn't want me to buy 2019 SU. :(

Andy,

If you let your maintenance lapse then it will end up costing you more.
You really shouldn't equate yearly maintenance with a new version.
The next thing we will hear is - I can't get SU 2019 because I let my maintenance lapse!!!

Oh, I am aware, plus they give you a month grace period, which I'm still in. In any case, 2018 wasn't really worth it, so I will decide once I see 2019 if it's worth getting back on maintenance. It may well be that there's nothing there and I will just continue to stick to old tried and true 2016/17 versions.

You'll find that, once you've been issued a license for an updated (newer) version, and you have used it to activate the updated (newer) version, the serial for older versions won't work anymore after (I think) a month. Existing activated installations will keep on working as normal, but you won't be able to do a fresh install and activate any of the older versions. I suppose they do it that way to curb unauthorized installations.

Yep, I only installed 2018 on one of my computers for this very reason. I've only used 2018 in the past year to open 2018 version SU files, but do my main modeling on a different computer, usually in 2016. I'm planning to trial 2019 on that same computer and even if I do end up purchasing for some reason, I likely won't touch my other installs.

This is a shame. This is one of the benefits of having an AutoDesk subscription. You can download and install older versions of the software if you have some sort of need like to run an older version say for a 3rd party add-on or plugin that is not updated yet. Oh well, maybe one day.

I hope sketchup pro moves to web platform and we can finally get rid of those pesky desktop versions once and for all.

If you experienced a situation where you needed to be operated on - would you want a web app to say work on pumping your blood through your body to keep you alive? Then the internet goes down - OOPS.

Mission critical software should remain offline. As should CNC routers etc. This extends to large models where web apps will bring the entire system down to its knees !!!

I'm hoping "function" was joking, but if not YIKES!

If SU were to be Web only, Solo would need to change his name because there would be a heck of a lot of SU users joining him out the door.

No "function" is very serious about this.

But we are getting off topic here. Any news about SU 2019 yet?

v2019 will feature 3 most anticipated features: a new logo, ability to choose color for your section planes and maybe some new politically correct human in default template
You'll see sadly I'm very close to reality

That already exists.

People will whine and complain no matter how many new features they add.
