The SketchUp 2018 version was released on Nov.15, 2018.
This version is called SU Podium V2.5.8.
We also released an updated version for SketchUp 2017 called SU Podium V2.5.7
If you own SU Podium V2.5, the update to V2.5.8 or V2.5.7 is free.
The main difference is that PodiumExtras is now included in the installation of V2.5.8 and V2.5.7
Please read about PodiumExtras here -

Download SU Podium V2.5.8 for SketchUp 2018 or SU Podium V2.5.7 for SketchUp 2017 here:

If you  are still using SketchUp 2016, there is a PodiumExtras.rbz install.

I just got SU 2018 and Podium 2.5.8 installed and working.  Have been using both for quite a while.  Question - How come I can't set a fixed render size anymore?  I like to start with interior preview and a small siza  just to quickly check lighting before I move up to a higher res and size.   The button is there but grayed out.

I also upgraded to V2.5.8, and was looking at the Trimble site for the SU 2108 upgrade. What I didn't find is SU Make 2018. I did find a SU Free that was internet based. I don't want to use an internet based application and have been an SU user since version 1.0 in late 90s. Is there going to be a Make version in 2018?

You'll have to use 2017 Make. As I understand it, that will be the last free standalone version - unfortunately.
The web version (no plugins) will be free.

Cadalog is committed to the highest standards of customer support, and to the best of my knowledge, there are no plans to stop support for SU 2017 any time soon.

I'm sure Dave will elaborate.

If SketchUp 2017 and 2018 are both installed on a machine and Podium is already installed in SU 2017, is there a problem installing Podium in the 2018 version?  Should Podium be un-installed from 2017 before the 2018 installation is done?

Hey RCoolidge, nope you're all good -- no need to uninstall the 2017 version.
