Liste des changements:
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.
