- Fix Z-Range feature (#757).
- Fix crash when using any tool on Region Layer (#810).
- Fix crash when clicking “Open history” button (#788). Thanks to Frijol.
- Synfig CLI fixes: Replace ETL functions with Boost, display frames instead of lines, percentage completed and improved remaining time calculation. Thanks to Diego Barrios Romero.
- Linux build: Fix missing icons in GNOME, LXDE and some other environments (#786, #806).
- Linux build: Fix missing dependency for Ubuntu (#675).
- OSX build: Fix insensitive menus (#810).
- OSX build: Fix Preferences dialog crash (#789).
NOTE: For OSX build we have hit a serious Gtk3 compatibility issues (see here and here), so we have been forced to migrate from native to X11-based builds. So, in order to run Synfig Studio on OSX, users have to install Apple’s XQuartz package.
