Just got done reading the new release notes for Dynamo 2.1. I have some question I think many are also having so I figured I would start a post. For those looking for the release notes follow the link below.
“This means that Revit will release new versions with Dynamo installed as a standard component without a separate installer and without affecting previous Revit installations.”
Will there ever be a situation again like 1.x and 2.x? If we find ourselves in this case again where scripts are not compatible we will have to maintain two versions of the script. I am still dealing with fallout from this upgrade.
“As Dynamo is now a feature of Revit, you will not be able to remove, uninstall or downgrade your Dynamo version but will also no longer have to support multiple versions of Dynamo with each install of Revit nor update Dynamo versions in Revit.”
It is not unheard of to use three versions back of Revit. Does this mean that Dynamo will also be three years old if I boot up Revit 2020 in 2022? What about 2018 and 19 next year and the year after?
“This also means that the Dynamo team will no longer deliver installers for Dynamo Revit and Revit will instead start shipping newer versions of Dynamo on a regular basis.”
Will we be getting one last installer for Dynamo 2.1? Right now 2.0.2 has a lot of bugs "Oops – sorry for this one. " Most firms wait until the first major update to start projects in a new version of Revit. Also, many projects do not get upgraded as they progress. Are we now stuck with 2.0.2 until we have a project in Revit 2020? Will one last stable installer be released for Revit 2018 and 2019?
Sorry if I went on a bit of a rant. Just want to make sure we have what we need in years to come.
