Roundup – Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store, Special Revit 2019 Supplemental Edition (Update #2)

Revit 2019 was released a couple days ago, on April 10, 2018, so one would think that all updates of Revit 2019 compliant add-ins on the Autodesk App Store would be dated on or after April 10, right? Unfortunately, that's not the case.

Developers can gain access to early access versions of upcoming releases of Revit, and some choose to publish their compliantly updated add-ins to the App Store early.

This year, though they didn't become visible until April 10, some updates were dated as early as March 13. Presumably these earlier dates reflect when they were submitted to the App Store.

So, here's a special one-time edition of our usually weekly roundups to capture the available add-ins on the App Store that support Revit 2019 dated prior to April 10. We'll assume that future ones will be captured in subsequent weekly roundups.


Editor's Note: And... we called it. The App Store folks dropped another add-in updated for Revit 2019, BIM Helper Toolslate in the day on April 13, backdated to April 5. We suspect that what happened was:
  1. Developer submitted add-in for publishing on April 5
  2. App Store reviewed and published add-in on April 13, but backdated it to the earlier submittal date

This makes zero sense to us. Call us crazy but we think newly published add-ins should appear at the TOP of the list. Instead, BIM Helper Tools appeared 77th! By default, that would be on the 4th page!

Also, add-in authors aren't required to enter new version numbers for updates either, and that can cause confusion. 

If this concerns you as it does us, please drop the Autodesk App Store folks an email and express your concerns. We'd appreciate it, and we'll do the same.
