We’ve gone 4.0! After 18 months of development, three betas and around 800 builds it’s finally here. Our Loupe Service customers were upgraded this weekend and for everyone else you can download the latest release right away. If you’re not currently using Loupe, definitely check out our new feature rundown on our main site.
Back in November of last year we laid out what we we were aiming for with version 4. published the internal document the team developed that lays out the details, it’s worth a read to get a full view of what was planned for Loupe 4. Our key goals were to transform the utility of Loupe for rapid customer support and make the Loupe Web User Interface the centerpiece of user’s experience. Based on feedback from our beta community, we’re confident we’ve nailed it.
