beta is already out, yet the ages long issue which causes viewport angle snap to not respect “Auto Perspective” setting is still present.
I have reported the issue two times already:
and both times the issue was closed because it’s already present as one entry in some obscure TODO list everyone has forgotten: https://developer.blender.org/T55366
Since 2.8 changes mainly concern UX improvements, this should definitely not be forgotten. It is very important to note that if viewport angle snap properly works with Auto Perspective, it can serve as superior replacement for any kind of view switch pie menu (currently on tilde key) or any set of viewport hotkeys. It will allow users to switch to orthographic views in a lot more visual, intuitive way that requires lot less mental work.
Right now, unfortunately, it doesn’t work, as the orbit snap just aligns viewport camera with closest world axis, but doesn not switch the view from perspective to orthographic, despite “Auto Perspective” being enabled.
