Yes Sur – Sketch 70 is here! 🎉

Good news everyone, Sketch for Big Sur is here!
With Sketch 70, we're introducing a UI redesign that fits right in with the new macOS Big Sur design language. It’s the same Sketch you know and love, but with every detail reconsidered. We think you're going to love it!
If you're not able to upgrade to Big Sur yet, don't worry. We've made sure things still look and feel great on older macOS versions as well.
As always, upgrade to the newest version of Sketch at, and be sure to let us know what you think 😉

Something is wrong with Sketch 70 on macOS Big Sur. My plugin completed a job for 13 seconds in Sketch 69, but in Sketch 70 the same job takes 4 minutes :(
Yikes – that's no good. Can I ask what plugin it is?

I found the problem source. It is sketch-devtools plugin. Here are my measures of test procedure.
iMac 27 + Catalina + Sketch 69.2 + sketch-devtools Total: 1m 44s
iMac 27 + Catalina + Sketch 70 + sketch-devtools Total: 5m 11s
iMac 27 + Catalina + Sketch 70 - sketch-devtools Total: 1m 44s

Lovely! Thanks for the UI update.
Isn't 70 the version that's also native to the new M1 Macs? Would love to hear from anyone about noticeable dat-to-day performance.
I shifted to Figma in a new role this year but have been tempted to check out Sketch again in light of co-editing coming, and the fact that Figma plugins can be excruciating to ridiculously slow. It's mainly things like finding instances of Components, find and replace, almost anything text based… but I also still miss Runner Pro.
…I wonder if M1 performance could make it viable to move back to a native design app…? 🤔

Thank you Sketch and (willharris) -- since the v. 70 release the new "Beta" page on the Sketch site is so much better! I really didn't like the last version where you had to click to see what the release notes were. This kind of takes the best of both worlds where the design in general looks nicer with the big header area, but the actual important content isn't hidden. So, thanks again!
Thanks for the feedback, (jkilp)! I'll make sure to share this with our web team, as I'm sure they'll appreciate the kind words 😊
