While this roundup covers add-ins released through the Autodesk App Store, we also cover add-ins from other corners of the Internet. For the rest of the picture, see our current "week in review" article.

Apparent False Updates

Most weeks there are a number of add-ins listed on the App Store as having been updated when they appear not to have been. We call these apparent false updates. We identify these by comparing the current version numbers with our last posts about the add-ins.

False updates may occur when:
  • Developers forget to update or change version numbers
  • Developers publish new artwork, rename add-ins, or change prices
  • Developers re-publish the same versions to move their add-ins up in the list (a purposefully deceptive practice)
  • There are glitches in the App Store

In the hopes that the App Store will someday address these issues, or the few problem developers will police themselves, we list the apparent false updates below.

  • BIMobject
    • BIMobject
  • COVE Tool, Inc
    • cove.tool
    • Watermark Manager PowerPack for Revit 2018 R2
  • Megara
    • Megara Shared Parameters Binder
    • Dynamic Quantities
