    Bonjour Boxers!

    We have another fantastic update for you with a long demanded feature. As part of the 3.3 release we are deploying our new and improved user account management system. This new system allows users to use their Gmail, Facebook, or personal email account to login and launch Buildbox. It also simplifies overall account management, upgrades, and the best part of it all, it no longer relies on license keys! This will replace the much maligned prior system resulting in incorrect or recurring Maximum System limit errors. How it works now is your Gmail, Facebook, or personal email account will connect you directly to your Buildbox account. In order to update to 3.3 (and future Buildbox releases) you will need to migrate your old account to the new system. To do that, you will need to create a new Buildbox account. Don't worry, we will automatically transfer all your information from your old account to your new account. Simply click continue and follow the prompts!

    Notice: To be clear the login in the conversion process have nothing to do with previous customer portal profile login information

    As is with any Beta release please ensure making a backup of any important projects prior to opening and saving them in the new build.

    If you find any bugs or licensing issues please send them into support@buildbox.com with all pertinent details ASAP so we can get them documented and corrected. Drumroll.....below are the links:

    No Big Sur Beta compatibility currently guaranteed yet. Would not expect it until closer to actual Big Sur launch

    Most of the changes are regarding the new authorization system, no bugs changelog from 3.2.3 to be clear outside of the known issue posted

    Account migration also affects BB2, that is, will those with access to BB2 and BB3 still have access to BB2?
    Will we be able to open older BB3s or can only BB3 be opened from this version?

    Just like any Beta, it’s separate to any other software. So you will still have access.

    Ok, what's the purpose of this User Management System, to bypass license key access that checks every time on Buildbox load? I thought that's allowing other Buildbox users to access Buildbox through my account :) That would be nicer, especially if you have a team.

    what you say can be exploited by any pro user and it should not be allowed. sharing accounts its not encouraged that's the reason behind having seats in your account. now you can have 2 active connections any time, anywhere without having to request a key reset.

    This system is to replace the license key login system. It will not allow mass sharing on accounts however, there are still seat limits like before. It will result in less issues than the previous system and improvements going forward down the line :)
