Stable Altium Version

(1/4) > >>

Cleaver Greene:
Hi all,
New to the Forum.
I have been using Altium AD17 for some time now. I am always reluctant to jump to the latest version until bugs and other nonsense are sorted out first. Generally I am always one issue behind on all the CAD software I use.
However, with Altium, I was not impressed with AD18 so never moved up a version.
My qustion is, If anyone who is using a later version than me could tell me if all the bugs are ironed out and it is a stable version, waht version would that be please?
Kind regards
Cleaver.

Are you currently on subscription, or do you have a perpetual Licence? If so, maybe read the Altium support forum. I'm subscribed to the email list and I don't think there is a version that is bug free. However, someone did ask the same question as you on 9/5/2019 (a Mr Binedell) and he got several responses to his question.

voltsandjolts:
Hard to say really, every version has bugs and often your use case determines if you bump into them or not.
For me v21 is working OK, but TBH I still miss the old user interface of AD15...can't recall what AD17 UI was like.

twospoons:
I'm using '21 - it still has bugs, from complete crash to hidden file corruption. Not so much that its completely unusable, but backup often.
I don't think I've EVER used a stable, bug-free version of Altium - and I go all the way back to when it was called Protel!

I think the devs spend most of their time reorganising the UI instead of actually fixing issues.

Bud:
No such thing as bug-free Altium, accept this.
