Axure has always worked to facilitate communication between software professionals through interactive prototyping. For most of our history, that has meant building prototypes in Axure RP. But now with Axure Cloud's new Build feature, anyone can create interactive prototypes from Sketch and image files right in the web browser!

The Axure Cloud desktop app allows you to publish artboards from Sketch directly to Axure Cloud. Now you can share and inspect your designs right alongside your team's Axure RP prototypes — whether you use Axure RP or not. And with the new Build feature, you can turn your Sketch artboards into interactive prototypes without ever leaving Axure Cloud!

With the new Sketch-to-Axure plugin, it's a snap to import polished designs from Sketch into Axure RP, bring them to life with rich interactivity, and add documentation for development.

One of our main goals for Axure RP 9 was to make dynamic panels easier and more intuitive to work with, so we made dynamic panel states editable inline, right where they are on the canvas. Not only does this make editing states quicker, it allows you to see a state's contained widgets directly in the context of your full design.

Project overviews for RP 9 files now include a thumbnail preview of each page; and you can extract style and layout information from the widgets in your designs.

Axure RP 9 will officially launch in just a few short weeks! If you want to get a head start on upgrading your existing perpetual licenses or purchasing some new ones, you can do that now.

Thanks to customer feedback, we've improved on inline editing, interaction building, and more since the initial RP 9 Beta release. Today, we're introducing one of the most requested enhancements: a dark UI mode to complement dark mode on the latest macOS and Windows operating systems.

The Axure RP 9 Beta is now available to all existing customers! If you've got version 8 activated on your computer, the version 9 beta should just work; if not, you may need to enter your license. To get started, head over to the Axure RP 9 Beta page.

One of our main goals for Axure RP 9 was to make interactions simpler, speedier, and more approachable for both new and experienced users. After a lot of internal testing and tons of feedback from beta testers, we think we've achieved that goal with the new interactions workflow.
