This update addressing an important crossplatform compatibility issues for Linux and OSX, as well as other general fixes and improvements. Below you can find a full list of changes comparing to the previous release candidate.

List of changes:

  • New Cutout Tool. Thanks to Evgenij Katunov.
  • New option to choose light or dark UI theme (see “Edit” -> “Preferences” -> “Misc” -> “Use dark UI theme”).
  • 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.
