    Very impressed with quality, performance, and design. Only a couple natural editing features I found missing or difficult to accomplish (filling a region and moving a region), so only -1 on features.

    Perhaps the most feature-full and speedy-running software of its kind I had seen to date. Very nice work! Moreover, it's being actively maintained, and is open source.
