For this release, we focused on freeform layout and advanced style properties. And as usual, we've sent out hundreds of invites.


Freeform layout is much more fun with snapping.

New Position panel

With the new Position panel, you can position objects relative to a parent. Handing for pinning your AppBar to the top of the viewport.

Backdrop filter

Now you can apply filters to anything behind the object. Perfect for frosted glass effects.

Redesigned spacing panel
