Hello everyone, we thought we should start the year with a short update on UI. First, a quick retrospective. Since July 2020, when we released our first version of the UI Toolkit preview package, we’ve received a lot of great feedback. We want to thank you all for trying out UI Toolkit, and most importantly, for taking the time to share your opinions and ideas, report issues, and share with everyone the UI projects you’ve been working on. Your feedback has been critical for helping us build a better product, and has been a great source of motivation for the team. Pushing the UI Toolkit Release Your feedback also made us realize that UI Toolkit was not meeting the quality level we wanted for Unity 2021.1. We’ve decided to move the release to 2021.2 to ensure that UI Toolkit meets expectations, and addresses a few more requirements such as interoperability with other systems, basic support for UI animation, and onboarding material. We also want to make sure it’s part of the Unity 2021.LTS version. If UI Toolkit meets your requirements at that point, you can safely start using it in production. Also a reminder that we advise against using the preview package for productions shipping on Unity 2020. Changing the UI Toolkit Release Strategy Another point worth bringing up is how we will release incremental updates of UI Toolkit in the future. In the coming weeks, we will release the last version of the UI Toolkit package ecosystem, which includes the UI systems and assets, the authoring tools and the text feature set. This version will only be compatible with 2020.2 and 2021.1. Starting from 2021.2, new features will strictly be available from the core product, and won’t be supported by the packages. This means the package versions will only include bug fixes and no new features. Bleeding edge versions of UI Toolkit will be accessible via Alpha and Beta releases of Unity. Delivering UI Toolkit as a package has been very helpful for gathering early feedback, but it adds a considerable amount of development overhead. We would rather invest that time in improving the toolkit itself. Once again, thank you for your continued support.
