8.3 Release Notes

Release date: May 21, 2019

Shotgun 8.3 comes with many improvements so you can keep working, better and faster.

Choose a role in Shotgun

Starting with Shotgun 8.3, we will ask users to provide their role when they log in. We’re asking for this because understanding users’ roles will help us make Shotgun better. We will only ask for it once, and users can opt out entirely by closing the dialog.
