* New user interface
No comments here. You'll see the difference instantly. Organize your workspace with docking windows and tabs, all with nice look and feel.
Simply press Ctrl+D to bookmark your favorite place, assign nice icon and you'll never loose it on the map again. Organize in folders and search your bookmarks.
* Embedded scripting support
Create powerful scripts in Java-like language right in built-in Script Editor with syntax highlighting. Now you don't need any external tools to extend and adapt WW2D for your needs. Simple script that creates new date/time layer is included.
* Improved Layer Manager
Now you can quickly rearrange layers, change fonts, colors and opacity. Also save as many configuration schemes as you want and optionally load one of them when application starts.
* Add-on Manager
View information about all installed add-ons, compress your own add-on for distribution as single-file package, and install such add-on packages with only several clicks.
