Synfig 0.63.02 released!

Postby Genete » Wed Sep 28, 2011 4:27 pm

I've released a minor change to the latest version.
This time I've added a new parameter to the Advanced Outline ('Fast') to allow users to render the outline using the old width interpolation algorithm. This may cause some render artifacts in certain circumstances and the shape of the width is not uniform with the curve length. On the other hand, since the calculations to do that precise render are big and in some cases (very large outlines with many vertexes) can overwhelm Synfig Studio, checking this parameter to be 'on' will render significantly faster.

So I decided to make a quick fix for this problem and release this new version.

Linux binaries are available at the usual place.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/synfig/files/binaries/

There is needed help to complete the full release and spreading the word.

  • Create/publish Press Release at website.

i'm having problems with "undo/redo", i was working linking ducks, when i had to undo suddenly some of the components like shapes inside capsules and duck positions returned to one state, one of my character's eyes returned to a round shape, when originally, her eye was an oval.

Maybe you pressed undo twice? Does redo work? If you already saved the file it is not possible to know about it.

I've added you to Freshmeat as manager. Regarding to Gnomefiles I've sent you an invitation. I think once confirmed you can edit the application. I've updated to 0.63.02 at gnomefiles but not at freshmeat.
Thanks!
