Welcome Adobe XD CC

I’m delighted to announce the 1.0 release of Adobe XD today. Since the first beta release, we have been laser-focused on building a solution that enables fast-paced, iterative design – one that eliminates the need to jump between multiple tools and services, one that prioritizes quality and speed over the number of features, and one that performs flawlessly on either macOS or Windows 10 hardware.

Journey to 1.0

The public beta gave designers visibility into our progress, and the opportunity to provide feedback to help shape XD’s future. With over one million community members who have downloaded XD, we have pored over every single idea, comment, and suggestion.

If you shared your thoughts with us, whether it was via UserVoice, social media, or in-person at a conference – our entire team would like to thank you for being a part of this journey, and for helping us define where we go next.

What’s in 1.0

Design, Prototype, and Share: XD lets you wireframe, create low or high fidelity visual designs, define navigation flows and transitions between artboards, preview and share interactive prototypes, gather feedback from stakeholders, and export assets for production use.

Re-imagined for modern workflows: As you’re using XD, you’ll notice that defining repeating elements, masking images, managing colors, styles, and symbols, and staying organized with layers are faster and more intuitive than expected.

Quality and performance above all: XD’s top two features are speed and stability – from its near-instantaneous launch time, lightning fast zooming and panning (even if you have hundreds of artboards in a single project), and unparalleled stability across platforms.

What’s Next

While 1.0 represents a major milestone, we consider it a foundational release. Our ambition is to make XD the only UX design solution you will ever need, delivering regular updates with more features and functionality based on your feedback, all while keeping XD fast and nimble. Please visit my blog post here for details on what you can expect to see in upcoming releases.

Designers Love XD

We believe XD’s core capabilities, reimagined workflows, quality and performance all contribute to making XD a joy to use. See what designers have already made with XD, and watch how Boosted used XD to design a platform that connects their community members together. This is just one example of how companies are already using XD every day.

Getting started with XD

With the introduction of XD 1.0, now is a great time to design, prototype and share user experiences. We are committed to preserving its quality and performance with each subsequent release while adding the capabilities you need to create richer experiences and to collaborate with your team. You can get XD for only US $9.99/month or as part of the Creative Cloud All Apps plan. Click here to download XD, or visit our Plans Page to learn more. We’re looking forward to seeing your designs – don’t forget to share and tag your projects with “#madewithadobexd.”

Thank you again for helping us to reach this milestone – your ongoing feedback and suggestions are gratefully received by our team on UserVoice, and you can always reach out to us on Twitter (@AdobeXD).

    Has the new v1.0 added any new feature, apart from those released in Aug 2017? I hope so, would be nice to point these out.

    Yes ;( I waited impatiently new features this month ;( this software is very good but lack of feature to be a perfect tool

    I would love to give it a chance but the lack of some essential features makes XD a software that you cannot use for big projects.

    So more than two months without a single update and now there is… nothing but a marketing message? Ouch…!

    Hi Linda,

    With this release, we added support for adding linked and unlinked raster graphics from CC libraries. You can see it in action here at (2:05) in our new tutorial:

    The 1.0 release also includes email notifications for commenting on shared web prototypes.

    We have quite a few more items coming in our next release. Check out our What’s Next post:

    hi – just throwing this out there – hoping for response from Adobe or users… There seems to be a heck of a lot of time and space given to how great XD is to design, prototype, share… but what i want to know is how good is XD at transferring all this beautiful design work to actual live apps or websites? Can developers use the content right out of XD (exported or?) and maintain a high level of design fidelity? Its not worthwhile designing something beautiful if it ultimately is going to be re-assembled with code and be kinda similar to the original – but not exact. A problem I’ve run into many times. I’ve watched a couple of videos on exporting assets from XD – but that seems to be just for graphic bits and pieces. Curious if anyone can enlighten me – Thanks!!

    No Linux support?
