Ascii Generator dotNET 0.9.5 Released

Ascii Generator dotNET (ascgen2) is an application to convert images into the highest quality ASCII art, i.e. text that accurately represents the original image. The first and only program of its kind with output adjustments in real-time and conversions for variable width fonts.

This release adds dithering to improve the output, all text widgets have been merged into one, and adds automatic loading of translation files in translation.*.xml format.
