    I unity going to continue maintaining ugui toolkit?

    The reason for asking is that a short while ago I needed to work on a small application that had something like 20 completely unique and distinct UI screens with interconnected layout, and thinking about it, the experience wasn't that great, and there were multiple bottlenecks.

    Actually now I understand the point of people who say "Unity should make games", because until you had to do "Align to area, Set left/right/top/bottom offset to 0" 50 times you won't discover a bottleneck there and it might not occur that something like this should be doable in one click.

    So, the question is.

    Is UGui going to be maintained and improved in the future, or did unity decide to throw their forces at UIToolkit that maybe is going to be ready few years down the road and abandon ugui?

    Basically, is there even a point of reporting feedback/bugs etc regarding the uGui toolkit?

    What i can say is there is still a team dedicated to uGUI to maintain and improve it. At the same time a lot of focus is being put on UIToolkit to be the future of UI in Unity. Until UIToolkit is feature complete and a easy replacement for uGUI we will actively maintain uGUI.
