XD 20 is now available, and it brings with it some changes and new features for plugins:
"Launchpad" UI – A new sidebar makes it easier for users to launch plugins. In the near future, this will also be a place where plugins can show their own custom panel UI (but not quite yet!).
Menu structure changes – XD now arranges plugin menu items more cleanly:
- Multiple menu items are automatically grouped together into a submenu named after the plugin. There’s no longer any need to manually specify a submenu.
- If your plugin only has a single menu item, it’ll still be available directly at the top level of the Plugins menu.
- However, top level menu items always use the name of the plugin. If your plugin’s single menu item had a different label specified, it will be ignored.
Text scenenode super/subscript – textScript is added to the Text scenenode APIs and the Assets panel text style APIs.
As always, don’t forget to update your plugin manifest’s
minVersion if you are going to rely on any of the new API features.
