We are continuously providing updates all year round, view the updates page here »

Last updated 20 February 2020

The Annual Service Plan allows us to release software more frequently compared to the previous, more restrictive, product-based approach. See what we've achieved so far...

Below is our intended* roadmap. Note that regular (typically monthly) additional minor updates are not detailed below.

Adobe Illustrator plugins

  • Advanced live effect Long Shadow and Offset Path tools based on our advanced vector AG Tech (which has forms the basis of our separate Astui service)
  • Advanced vector sketching tool to truly capture stylus input dynamics
  • Second phase of the new vector sketching tool with real media simulations
  • Illustrator 2021 compatibility update
  • Advanced path reshaping tool

Training material

  • Frequent new video and written training material so that you can get the most from our tools
  • New regular webinar series

Astute Manager and user account

  • Team management for volume and corporate customers (high priority - expected April 2020)
  • Revised Astute Manager to ensure an improved user experience for new and existing customers

Do you have a suggestion?

Astute Graphics have been listening to suggestions from customers and users since our first plugin (Phantasm) in 2006. If you have a tool or enhancement that you think would be useful to your vector workflow and other Adobe Illustrator users, please get in contact. Many of the recent minor updates have been the direct result of user requests, some being deployed within 2 weeks of receipt!
