SketchUp 8 M3


There’s been quite a bit going on around SketchUp HQ lately, what with the Trimble thing and the launch of our exciting new SketchUp Showcase and all. But Tyler and the rest of the Engineering gang haven’t just been sitting on their hands, either. Today, they’ve got a fresh new SketchUp maintenance build for you as well. Nothing major, but there’s some good stuff in it.

As usual, you can read all the details here, but for those who just care about the highlights:

  • We’ve fixed some more crashes folks reported in Ruby Observers.
  • Those of you with many Ruby extensions installed should no longer suffer from greyed-out menu items.
  • SketchUp Pro network licenses on Windows now allow multiple instances to run on the same machine at one time.
  • …and the usual collection of performance improvements, security updates and bug fixes.

SketchUp will notify you the next time it checks for an update, but if you just can’t wait, download a fresh install right now.
