Synfig 0.63.02 released

No time to wait! We are releasing Synfig Studio 0.63.02 - a minor
update, delivering a fix for performance issue introduced in previous
version.

Some users experience inconvenience because of the new interpolation
method for Advanced Outline layer, which is very accurate, but slow.
We plan to optimize the code for that routine, but it can't be done
soon, because of the other items on our roadmap.

Until then, we are releasing this minor update, introducing new
parameter for Advanced Outline layer (Fast), which allows to disable
slow interpolation algorithm and use old (but inaccurate) one. Please
notice, that enabling this option may cause some render artifacts in
certain circumstances and the shape of the width is not uniform with
the curve length. Though, it will give you significant performance
boost for complex curves.... read more

synfig 0.61.08

At long last, we have a new release! There have been lots of changes since the last release. This release fixes lots of bugs, and adds a few new features. Overall stability should be much improved, but you probably still need to apply a workaround to get decent stability on multi-core Windows machines.

synfig status

I'm back from sailing the high seas and into the thick of synfig stuff.

While I was away:

* lots of patches were sent in
* some patches were applied to svn
* a new unofficial Win32 build was created
* questions were asked on irc

Stuff achieved for the next release:

* We have a Win32 build maintainer, for at least a year (welcome Atrus)!
* g++ no longer seems to miscompile synfig and if it does there is a simple workaround
* the OOM condition when building synfigstudio on non-i386 platforms may not occur, **this needs testing**
* Lots of crashers and other bugs fixed
* A couple of small features added
* Some parts of the UI were reworked... read more
