    Who knows, but it seems like most of the main features of the editor version are working right now. I am using it for an editor script without many issues.

    Can't come soon enough to be honest. A more flexible layout for different screen widths would greatly improve development times.

    So does this means it'll be released before then?

    Nope, it just means more info will be released during that talk, along with concrete usage examples and a more detailed roadmap. Though, we might release some details sooner.

    EDIT: Like right now, below. :)

    We just posted our roadmap for UI. The main points:
    • Preview package will be released with 2019.3
    • We will iterate on it during the 2020 cycle
    • A Verified package will be released in 2020.3
    Very open to feedback at this stage so feel free to let us know what you think.

    Cheers

    Naming is hard. "Unity UI" or "uGUI" is a completely different UI framework for Unity than UIElements. They have nothing in common.

    Now, while the UIElements runtime package does work with 2019.3.0b6, we are still actively working on it and will share it publicly once Unity 2019.3 fully releases (out of beta) - around mid- to late-November.

    So just to clarify, we can currently use the UI Builder package (and even preview runtime theme in the builder) in 2019.3 beta, but It won't be until 2019.3 goes out of beta that the UI Elements Runtime package will be released, allowing us to actually see it in the game view like we did in the Unity talk? This is done using a PanelRenderer component I read? And we have no way of accessing that right now.

    Really looking forward to playing with this!

    You can only make it overlay in the UIBuilder right now. See 13:38 of the talk:
