The team is recharged after attending the annual Creative Force meet-up - this time in an old manor house in west Jutland, Denmark. 👻

sprint-105-1

As you might have noticed, we didn't deploy this Tuesday as our developers needed to get back home. The deployment was therefor pushed to the weekend.

So enjoy this slightly delayed reading on Sprint Release Day! 🎉

HUE UXP - OPEN BETA

We are happy to announce that the UXP version of our HUE Panel is now in open beta. And why is this important? Well, a while back Adobe Photoshop stopped supporting their old panel technology CEP, for users on Apple Silicon based Macs (M1 + M2).

Our HUE panel was built on CEP technology which meant that CF users, on new macs, had to run on an old version of Photoshop (22.2) or emulate via Rosetta - both suboptimal solutions.
