A quick report of improvements made by Ivan:
- Changes to edited images are saved now
- Basic implementation of Undo functionality (still crashes at certain condition, though)
- A new layer type: Switch Group. It groups layers together, but only one layer is displayed. The displayed layer is chosen by name. If there are several layers with the same name in the Switch Group, then only topmost one is displayed.

The current status of Frame-by-frame feature development is reflected in the approximate roadmap here: wiki.synfig.org/wiki/Dev:Roadmap … 8bitmap%29
Generally we have all fundamental pieces in place and concept looks pretty solid. Right now we’re in hurry to deliver to you most of this roadmap until the end of the month.
Our fundraising campaign have 5 days until the deadline. We have crossed the 50% line, but it’s still a way to go. The “Choose Priority” perk remains unclaimed yet, so there’s still a chance to grab one (or something else) if you want.
One more event of the last week to mention: I was happy to receive a hardware donation from a small studio of Novosibirsk (a city 500km from here). The donation turned to be a new workstation with the following configuration: CPU Intel i7 2600K (8 x 3.4GHz), 16 GB RAM, 60 GB SSD + 2 x 3TB HDD, NVidia GTX 560 Ti.
I am sure this little beast will make maintaining of Synfig for different platforms a lot easier. ^___^
That’s all for today, till the next time!
