Bluebeam will be Terminating Sale of Older Versions of Revu

By Microsol Resources | Data Management

Bluebeam announces that Bluebeam Revu 2018 & 2019 will not be available for purchase effective on February 23, 2022

Bluebeam has informed us that effective February 23, 2022, it will no longer sell new licenses of older versions of Bluebeam Revu. Furthermore, It also announced that it will only continue to support these older versions for 1 year, until February 22, 2023. What does this mean for you?

If all  or some of your Bluebeam Revu licenses are version 2018 or 2019, with or without Maintenance:

  • As stated above, the last day for you to buy these licenses is February 22, 2022, which is coming up very shortly. However, we would not recommend this path, as you would be buying licenses that almost immediately would be set for retirement. We would instead recommend that any new licenses you buy in the next few days be of the latest version, Revu 2020, with Maintenance. With Maintenance, you will benefit from improvements that will be coming and licensing changes that may occur (please see below for the benefits of Maintenance).
  • With regard to your current older licenses, we recommend upgrading them to Revu 2020 with Maintenance at your earliest possibility, as they will no longer be supported in 1 year.
If all Bluebeam Revu licenses you own are version 2020 with Maintenance:
  • This announcement has no effect on your licenses, and you are in an excellent position to benefit from any improvements and changes that may occur.
If all Bluebeam Revu licenses you own are version 2020 without Maintenance:
  • This announcement has no effect on your current licenses, but we would advise you to add Maintenance, to benefit from any improvements and changes that may occur.




Benefits of Maintenance

  • Get free upgrades to the latest version of Revu while your term is active, and you will have access to any bug fixes released on that version.
  • Receive access to direct phone and email support with Microsol Resources’ Bluebeam Certified Instructors and experts
  • Easily upload and distribute mobile-optimized drawings to any device in the field with Bluebeam Drawings
  • Get access to our growing resources of how-to, troubleshooting, and training materials located on our TECH Resources, as well as our educational webinars.


As always, we want to partner with you to provide the best possible support for our customers. You may also find this article helpful on The Top 20 Helpful Tips & Tricks for Bluebeam Revu.
