Last week we released Avocode 3.0 - the first cross-platform design hand-off tool. We've been receiving a lot of overwhelming feedback, so I thought I would share this update with this community as well.
So what's new?
You no longer need design tools or plugins to import design Sketch, Photoshop, XD files. Just drag & drop them, open and inspect them to the Avocode desktop app on Windows, Linux, macOS, or in the browser at app.avocode.com.
To make this possible, we had to develop a new universal design format (Octopus) with a representation for everything that can appear in Sketch, Photoshop, XD, or Figma design formats and a new rendering engine (Monroe) that would display all the design information properly. This technology is what makes Avocode different from other hand-off tools - developers no longer need design tools to access design files and designers don't have to prepare image assets at all.
Additionally, we're introducing a new Light theme look, a multitude of performance improvements and design management and collaboration features such as Project subfolders, Private links, Import variables, or the Pixel checker tool.
If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them in the comments. Thanks!
