Welcome Adobe XD CC

by Adobe UK Team

Posted on 10-18-2017

We’re delighted to announce the 1.0 release of Adobe XD today. Since the first beta release, we have been laser-focused on building a solution that enables fast-paced, iterative design – one that eliminates the need to jump between multiple tools and services, one that prioritises quality and speed over the number of features, and one that performs flawlessly on either macOS or Windows 10 hardware.

Journey to 1.0

The public beta gave designers visibility into our progress, and the opportunity to provide feedback to help shape XD’s future. With over one million community members who have downloaded XD, we have pored over every single idea, comment and suggestion.

If you shared your thoughts with us, whether it was via UserVoice, social media, or in-person at a conference – our entire team would like to thank you for being a part of this journey, and for helping us define where we go next.

What’s in 1.0
Design, Prototype, and Share: XD lets you wire frame, create low or high fidelity visual designs, define navigation flows and transitions between artboards, preview and share interactive prototypes, gather feedback from stakeholders, and export assets for production use.

Re-imagined for modern workflows: As you’re using XD, you’ll notice that defining repeating elements, masking images, managing colours, styles, and symbols, and staying organised with layers are faster and more intuitive than expected.

Quality and performance above all: XD’s top two features are speed and stability – from its near-instantaneous launch time, lightning fast zooming and panning (even if you have hundreds of artboards in a single project), and unparalleled stability across platforms.

What’s Next
While 1.0 represents a major milestone, we consider it a foundational release. Our ambition is to make XD the only UX design solution you will ever need, and we have aggressive plans to deliver regular updates with more features and functionality based on your feedback, all while keeping XD fast and nimble.

Designers Love XD
We believe XD’s core capabilities, re-imagined workflows, quality and performance all contribute to making XD a joy to use. See what designers have already made with XD, and watch how Boosted used XD to design a platform that connects their community members together. This is just one example of how companies are already using XD everyday.

Getting started with XD
With the introduction of XD 1.0, now is a great time to design, prototype and share user experiences. We are committed to preserving its quality and performance with each subsequent release, while adding the capabilities you need to create richer experiences and to collaborate with your team.

Thank you again for helping us to reach this milestone – your ongoing feedback and suggestions are gratefully received by our team on UserVoice, and you can always reach out to us on Twitter (@AdobeXD).
