Speckle 2.17 Release Candidate is here 🥁

Hello @Insiders,

We have been busy working on the latest updates and the 2.17 Release Candidate is ready for community testing. If you don’t feel adventurous, stick with the current stable 2.16 version for uninterrupted project work. Official stable 2.17 release will follow after community testing later this month.

How to test?

Installing the release candidate is easy.

  1. Open the Speckle Manager and find your favourite Connector.
  2. From the menu (3 dots), choose “Available versions”, and make sure that the “Show pre-releases” toggle is on.
  3. Install the 2.17.0-rc .

The 2.17 version is also recommended for testing the new frontend, give it a go at app.speckle.systems .

If you wish to revert back, click the install button for the 2.16 version in the “Available versions”.

How to give feedback?

Hi, I have tried the new frontend, but I lost all my previous streams.

Was this a normal behavior?

Is there a way to revert this situation?


@gjordanp - where are you attempting to view the streams from? Is it in your browser at https://app.speckle.systems, or in a connector, or a custom server deployment?

Are your previous streams still present in https://speckle.xyz?


Hi, Pavol, Ian

I’m trying to send a model with rebars to test this new feature and it won’t sent!!

Progress bar goes all the way to 100% and then nothing happened.



I used this version to send analysis results from Etabs to Revit but I wasn’t successful. Did I do something wrong or it’s still not fully functional in this version ?


It may not be. Apologies I know many things in the ETabs/Revit workflow are in 2.17 but the team responsible were not available last week.

Ok, Thanks.
I wanted to model beam to column connection and needed analysis results for that job.

Hi Farzan,
we did not check this with the newest version yet, but this might help you



Hi Alex,
Thanks for you help.
I’m going to try again considering the tips that were given in the forwarded post.
