Roundup – For Jul 31 - Aug 6, 2017, New and Updated Revit Add-ins on the Autodesk App Store

The week of July 31, 2017 was a fairly busy one for Revit add-ins on the Autodesk App Store. Two new add-ins were published, and nine were updated.

For new add-ins, LotSpec is options management software for home builders, and OkCommand is for finding commands by keyword.

For updated add-ins, Family + Detail Warehouse, formerly 'Detail Warehouse', received a relatively significant update.

Apparent False Updates

Most weeks there are a number of add-ins listed on the App Store as having been updated when they appear not to have been. We call these false updates.

We suspect false updates occur because developers have the ability in the App Store database to mark an 'update' without changing the version number. This is advantageous to developers because it moves their add-ins up in the App Store  'Newest' list. Also, authors of multiple add-ins on the App Store may use the practice to group their add-ins together. And some may mistakenly not change the version number for a legitimate update.

We verify false updates by comparing the current version numbers with our last posts about the add-ins. This is work for us, though, hopefully, value for you.

In the hopes that the App Store will someday fix this loophole or developers will cease the practice, we list the developers and their add-ins that, though marked as updated, were not.
