Hello, GIF Brewers! It’s been a long time, but we’re happy to announce the release of GIF Brewery 3. GIF Brewery 3 will be released on February 25, 2016. Also, GIF Brewery 3 will be free for the first two weeks!
GIF Brewery 3 is a rebuilt version of GIF Brewery that transitions to the latest OS X technologies. GIF Brewery 3 requires the latest version of OS X, 10.11 El Capitan.
Since GIF Brewery 3 is a big behind-the-scene change, it is being released as a seperate app from the current version. The current version of GIF Brewery (2.3.5) will be retired and removed from sale.
To help people transition to this new app version, GIF Brewery 3 will be a free app for the first two weeks of release. Anyone who downloads it from the Mac App Store in the first two weeks will get GIF Brewery 3 for free.
You can see a full list of changes over at the GIF Brewery 3 preview beta website. The current beta is still active until March 1, 2016. So, feel free to try it before official release.
The changes are also included in the brand new welcome screen that appears when you open GIF Brewery 3.
GIF Brewery 3 will become the new, definitive version of GIF Brewery. All future updates will be for GIF Brewery 3 and will be available for free.
There will be some minor updates, such as 3.0.1 and 3.0.2, that’ll focus bug fixes & minor new features.
We’ll also begin work on the next big update, 3.1. We have some initial ideas, but feel free too continue provide suggestions via e-mail or @gifbrewery. We will also include new features from the next version of OS X.
The current GIF Brewery (2.3.5) in the store is being retired and removed from sale before GIF Brewery 3’s release. Users of 2.3.5 can continue to use it. It will remain in your Mac App Store Purchases for redownload.
However, all future updates and work will be on GIF Brewery 3.
We’d like to offer a huge thanks to everyone has tried GIF Brewery 3 over the past months and provided invaluable feedback.
Finally, thanks to all GIF Brewery 2.3.5 and prior users. We hope you enjoy GIF Brewery 3 and its future updates.
See you on the 25th!
