  • floating dialogs always on top;
  • faster rendering of zoomed-out images;
  • localizable user interface, localization for Czech, German, Spanish, French, Hungarian, Indonesian, Japanese,Norwegian Bokm?l, Russian,   Slovenian, Swedish, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese;

  • large patterns for background;
  • all layers can be save as enumerated PNG images;
  • you can now drag and drop images to MyPaint;
  • a whole lot of smalle improvenents changes and bugfixes.

Presumably many thanks go to David Revoy who triggered a lot of the changes we see in this version :)
