OK, after two months of work and testing we have 0.63.04 released!
List of changes can be found in the Release Notes.

There are still some pending things to do:

  • Spread the world.
    • libregraphicsworld.org - DONE
    • LWN.net - DONE
    • Freshmeat -DONE
    • Gnomefiles
    • Synfig devl mailing list - DONE
    • Synfig user mailing list - DONE
    • Sourceforge site page update & news -DONE
    • IRC topic - DONE
    • Update Wikipedia - DONE
    • Update Facebook/synfig & Google+/synfig pages. - DONE
    • Diaspora - DONE
  • Build binaries packages for Windows and Mac
  • Update the ENGLISH wiki with the new features and review the wiki with missing/uncomplete pages. <<< this is important!

Thanks for all the contributions, suggestions, feedback, help and backing provided!. Without you this release wouldn't be a reality. ^__^

The new development cycle is already started - Genete have some neat features coded that were not passed to this release. While he is busy with development I strongly encourage everyone to look through the basic manual pages and update them according to the new release. We all want to have good manual, aren't we? Thank you! ^__^
K.

Sweet! This release is great! A whole new interpolation method (clamped) and some much needed rework of the preview window!

Would now be a good time to mention that we need to update the copyright info in the About Synfig Dialog?

There is one new behavior that I don't like so much.
When the Preview dialog is opened it is not possible to have any other window application onto it (and not onto the two dockables). Isn't there a way to make the preview dialog to be on top of its own application windows and not on top of any window?
Linux Mint 12 here.

I noticed the same problem too here on Fedora 16.

my bad, because I used keep_above,
replace with set_transient_for (self.get_parent()) should behave as previous "dialog" window
