What's New: Altium 365 November 2021 Updates

In November, the number of people using Altium 365 reached 17,000! With the platform gaining a critical mass, we decided to start a periodic newsletter and a blog series to keep our users informed about the latest developments.

Compare logical differences between versions of schematics without the noise of graphical changes that do not affect connectivity.

This is an Open Beta feature, and we would love to hear from our users on how it could be improved further. Please follow the instructions in the article on how to provide feedback on this feature.

Honorable Mentions

In this section, we highlight features we might have had for some time, but we would like to make sure more people know about them.
