Yep, some of my customers encountered the same issues. However, I wasn’t able to reproduce and experienced that issue on my Mac or my Win machines. Most of my panels users went back to a previous PS version, and some awaits for next PS iteration.
It’s been three weeks and still no patch
I have no idea what processes are in place at Adobe, but how hard it can be to simply revert the changes that broke a lot of stuff (not only missing icons)? And that’s been already 2 versions (22.4 and 22.4.1) - still no fixes…
There’s no “simply revert” when it comes to software at the complexity of Photoshop. Reverting would be a massive undertaking and affect everyone, including those who don’t use plugins and thus didn’t even know there was an issue.
Fixing the problem also requires time to discover the cause (wasn’t just limited to UXP plugins, for example – CEP plugins also had the issue), and then requires time to test & certify that the fix works without breaking anything else. All of this takes time.
As far as I can tell from the internal bug report, it appears to be fixed as part of 22.4.2. I’m not responsible for the Photoshop release cycle, so I can’t say when that will drop, but I’d expect it to be reasonably soon.
Releasing a version full of issues also affected almost everyone. I really doubt there are many who doesn’t use at least one plugin
Wouldn’t proper testing prevent the need for the fix in the first place? Especially when the issue
Exactly - every release requires time to test and see if everything works without breaking anything else, but that was not done properly and now double time is wasted on the expense of users and plugin developers
It wouldn’t if devs/testers/QA teams would’ve done their jobs
Sad to say, but at least a couple years now, when minor releases always had major bugs affecting almost everyone. There probably were some exceptions, but I don’t remember any.
I really think it’s time for Adobe to put some effort in testing and not simply releasing when one or two devs say it works on my machine. I mean how hard it was to notice that all plugins icons are gone?
