XD 15 was released today and includes more enhancements for plugin developers:
- Assets panel colors & text styles: Get/add/remove any colors, gradients, and text styles saved in the Assets panel.
- Deep link to plugin listings: Link from web sites, social media, etc. directly to your plugin listing in XD’s UI so users can easily install the plugin.
There are also several enhancements for plugin users:
- Disable individual plugins without uninstalling them
- Users can force-stop a plugin that is stuck on the “Plugin is working…” message
For further details on what’s new for plugins, see the updated changelog page or this complete diff of all docs changes. To see what else is new for XD users, check out our general XD release announcement.
If you build a plugin that uses any of the new APIs, consider whether it’s possible to gracefully degrade to support older versions of XD (and please test in an older XD version to confirm it works!). But if your plugin absolutely requires XD 15 APIs, don’t forget to set your
manifest.json file to specify
Please let us know what you think and show us all the cool things you build!
