(I wasn't really sure whether this belongs to the Native Access or Komplete General forum space. @Mods Feel free to move if required.)

Native Access shows two updates: one for Analog Dreams, another for Hybrid Keys.

Both updates are oddly miniscule in size compared to the products standard sizes:

Release Notes for the new 2.1.X versions are also missing.

Is it safe to update?

    I'd guess it relates to new MK3 keyboards

    Opps, it looks like the changelog was not included, it should be fixed soon. Yes, it's to support the keyboard's features. Here it is:

    CHANGED Minimum required Kontakt version is 7.6

    ADDED Support for NKS2 navigation

    ADDED New effects available on FX page (Bite, Dirt, Freak, Maximizer, Supercharger GT, Tape Wobble, Ring Modulator, Vibrato/Chorus, PsycheDelay, Twin Delay, Raum, Inverter)

    IMPROVED Glide Time parameters on Settings page can be assigned to macros now

    FIXED Macro assign popup didn't close when switching snapshots

    FIXED Pressing LFO Retrigger button disabled other layer's LFO when Layer Link option is enabled

    FIXED Layer B Glide time did not report its value to host properly

    Thanks nightjar & Jeremy! I just saw that it is now included 👍🏻

    What wonders me, though, is the small update size. IIRC, updates were always just the entire product being re-downloaded again. It's probably on @Hayo_NI to answer, since I remember him talking about work being under way on how downloads in Native Access are distributed.

    Take into account that if you still use K6, after the update they won't open in 6. Save copies of 2.0 in a seperate folder, then you can rename the update and bring the originals back.

    Correct. Since a product is locked behind an installer we can't just update the files that have been adjusted. We're working on this, shipping support on the front end in 3.7.0 and backend support rolling out progressively.
