Sketch 59 - New Typography Features & Smart Layout Improvements
Sketch 58 was a game-changer to our workflow, in the next update Sketch Team has prepared nice improvements to the famous Smart Layout and some new Typography features. In version 59, you can open an official Template to learn how to use Smart Layout in multiple cases.
What is new in Sketch?
After the huge response to Smart Layout last month, we're excited to launch Sketch 59 with a couple of features that should make a big difference to typography in your designs - better support for OpenType features and new variable fonts controls. On top of this, we're introducing a new data plugin in partnership with Pexels, and a new API for plugin developers.

Sketch 57 - New improvements to your workflow
The way Sketch Team releases the new version of the tool is great. Making incremental improvements, let us quickly acknowledge with new features and delight ourselves with speed improvements. Sketch 57 introduced a new feature that I enjoyed a lot - working with items collected in grids & lists is now a real pleasure!
Sketch Tools for Making Art
Did you know that in addition to user interfaces, Sketch can be used to create cool looking graphics? This is specially made possible thanks to a vast community of talented developers who cut-through window to creativity into masses, allowing anyone to do crazy things with just a couple of clicks.
Public Sharing in Abstract
You can share Artboards and Collections with your entire team-whether they have an Abstract account or not. One less hurdle makes it easier for Collaborators-like product managers, developers, and other stakeholders-to view designs and provide the feedback you need to move projects forward, faster.
