After installing the addons in the user preferences, they don't show up anywhere in blender 2.8 except from workspace addons tab in the properties and clicking it doesnt do anything. In user preferences next to the addons list, it also says that "Upgrade to 2.8x required". Does that mean that we can't use any addons in 2.8 unless they are upgraded for 2.8 builds?

    $\begingroup$ Since the addon version check, need to update to "blender" : (2, 80, 0) in the bl_info dictionary to register an addon. Some basic changes like no more scene.objects.[link, active] break a lot of addons. If you really want to disable the check, find the file 2.80/modules/addon_utils.py and edit the line if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 80, 0): to if True: (The addons may register, but be aware a lot of ops and panels will be broken) $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jul 7 '18 at 10:35

    $\begingroup$ Thanks you :) I'm addicted to 2.8 and EEVEE and now i can't go back to 2.79. I guess i'll have to wait... $\endgroup$ – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 7:31
  • $\begingroup$ whoops that should be if False: above, to remove the check. Liking 2.8 too, albeit a little frustrating. $\endgroup$ – batFINGER Jul 8 '18 at 7:48
  • $\begingroup$ Oh i was struggling to get it work with If True.... Thank you :) $\endgroup$ – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 7:51
  • $\begingroup$ I got it working by doing this: if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 80, 0): Change to if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 79, 0): $\endgroup$ – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 18:45

Blender 2.8 has yet to notify the add-on developers to make it compatible with 2.8. Currently, no or very few Add-ons work for this release. The release day for the beta version has been notified, check the website.

The add-ons now appear on the opposite side menu bar. Where they used to show up on the (T) menu bar, they now show up as tabs beside the (N) menu bar.

Ok the addons are in the addons in the preferences in 2.80 the mesh 2 is there But I am missing the measuremnts and the snap utils that used to show up in the T toolbar. Tool bar T is missing now.
Someone else must be scratching there head about why the addons are included with 2.80 but no person can find them to use them.
