Maybe I can compress it a bit if needed.
The perfect distraction after the exams are finished. I hope it comes soon (fingers crossed for May 10th).

Good luck with it.

I've installed the RC on Lucid 64bit, it works nice!
SVG import is much better than before.

And nice to see all the new layer icons in it ;) !

Please try to reproduce the panels mangling issue. Run synfigstudio from a terminal. Quit it. Run it again. Several times and it messes up the panels positions...

What exactly is the panels mangling issue? I'm running a dev build on lucid 32bit, but everything is fine (see screenshots).

nikitakit - the compressed zero height dialogs in the dock on the right hand side in your second screen shot are the ones concerning me.

i was going to test this release candidate, but i keep having problems with the installation,
Code:
checking for synfig >= 0.62.00 ETL >= 0.04.13 sigc++-2.0... configure: error:  ** Unable to set up dependent libraries (synfig >= 0.62.00, ETL >= 0.04.13)

what i made/tried so far:

-uninstalled any package related to Synfig and SynfigStudio
-configured the paths of dpkg using DPKG_CONFIG_PATH and some other things
-instaled dev and normal packages of MLT and ETL
-restarted my pc

and this is only at "./configure" command, i'm using Ubuntu Studio, originally 9.10 Karmic Koala but now updated to 10.4 Lucyd Linx (or at least that what it says), perhaps i'll stick with the development snapshot till i can download a new package from this release =(

H13N.H3N: Are you compiling everything in the right order? If you attempt to set up studio prior to etl and synfig, there would definitely be problems. (see http://synfig.org/wiki/Dev:Build_Instructions)

pixelgeek, genete: I have confirmed the bad dialogs as a bug on my system. I'll probably try a real debug soon, but what I know so far is that the height preference values are read properly from the file, but get mysteriously reset to 1 sometime after that.

The dialogs sizes are read and written properly from/to file. The problem is the resize(x,y) call. It doesn't obey completely due to the Gdk::Geometry values of the window. I haven't found a combination that work yet.

nikitakit: i did, i read the instructions already, that's why i'm posting my failed results here, is not my first time trying to compile ETL,MTL and Synfig, for some reason i feel very uncomfortable installing tarballs, is not too hard but sometimes i just don't get what i'm missing, if you think this error is too noob for keep track on it, it's fine for me if you want to stop the replies on this, soon or later i'll find out what i'm doing wrong, but i thought i should report my unsuccessful attempt, my principal suspect is my own OS, as it was one of the first releases of Ubuntu Studio 9.10, and not the current final version of the official site, for some reason i feel like something is not working as it *should*, tough everything works sweet

H13N.H3N,
The build instructions are written for a general debian based system, they might fail if some of the libraries are modified between versions.
Try to strictly follow (repeat all) the build instructions I wrote for 9.10 in this thread. Maybe they still be valid for 10.04.
When I upgrade to Lucid I'll re-check the specific build instructions, meanwhile we can only guess what's happening.

ouh!, Suxess!!

This is the preview of the main window, i like to have a big viewport for working properly, not problem at the moment talking about diferent kinds of Layer, image, traced (Blines and Regions), gradient, etc, still i have to keep testing a little more

Another thing i heard good things about is the SVG import, perhaps was already in the development Snapshot but still works pretty good

if you ask me, as a regular user, i see no problems regarding the layout, of course i would like to have my windows in size and position every session opened as i left them last time i used them, but i think i can try to live without them, maybe i need to use it more to see what are you talking about

I've done what you asked, but I can't reproduce the panel mangling issue (the panels always start at the same default position )

Same here, i closed and opened several times from terminal and every time Synfig Studio runs, the panels are the same last session, anyway, i give you my terminal output, the rest of the lines are likely the same but with different timing obviously:
Code:
h13n-h3n@R-System:~/synfig/install/bin$ synfigstudio

   synfig studio -- starting up application...
