 Podium Browser 2020 standalone was released

This is an update to the "standalone" version of the Podium Browser plugin — in other words, this is the version of Podium Browser that can be installed on its own for access to Podium Browser paid content, without installing the full SU Podium rendering plugin.

Please watch the following video for detailed information about version differences and licensing changes in the Podium Browser 2020 release:

Video Notes - Podium Browser 2020 is the replacement for the older Podium Browser V2.5 interface, and also replaces the current Podium Browser interface in in SU Podium V2.6.

We have stopped all development on Podium Browser V2.5 from this point forward, meaning Podium Browser V2.5 will no longer get any new content. ALL new Podium Browser uploads after this date will be added to Podium Browser 2020.

The main reason for this change is that Podium Browser V2.5 was written using an outdated SketchUp web API that has since been deprecated and replaced with a modern HTML5 support. Podium Browser 2020 improves user experience and ensures future SketchUp version compatibility.

Podium Browser 2020 standalone requires a small upgrade fee of $19.95.

This upgrade fee applies to two types of customer:

  • Customers who own Podium Browser paid content, but do not own/use SU Podium.
  • Customers who own SU Podium V2.5 and also own Podium Browser paid content, but are unable to upgrade to SU Podium V2.6 because of incompatibility with their operating system or SketchUp version.

SU Podium V2.6 users — This update is already integrated into the SU Podium V2.6.045 release (see below). There is NO upgrade fee for SU Podium V2.6 license holders.

 SU Podium V2.6.045 was released

The Podium Browser 2020 update explained above is already integraded into SU Podium V2.6.045, and is available now on the download page.

The key feature in this update is integration of the new Podium Browser 2020 interface. This version borrows features from both Podium Browser V2.5 and V3 — bringing back the left-sidebar navigation, which we felt was faster and easier to use, and integrating some of the improved sorting/search features from Podium Browser V3.

This is a free update for SU Podium V2.6 license holders.

Please follow the standard procedure for incremental updates within the same SketchUP version:

  1. Go to Extensions > SU Podium V2.6 > License to open the license mananger, and click "Deactivate" to deactivate your current version.
  2. Close SketchUp
  3. Download and run the uninstall utility that matches your SketchUP version - Uninstall SU Podium
  4. Downlad SU Podium V2.6.045 (if you are the only user on your computer, get the .rbz version - Download SU Podium
  5. Open SketchUP, and install the .rbz file from the SketchUp Extension manager. Instructions here if needed - Installing SU Podium (.rbz version).

 Latest Podium Browser uploads

New uploads in late June and early July include decorative trays, bowls, and table vases, Blue Dot living room storage, office cubicles, and new outdoor plants.
