Please note that this is an “alpha” simply because I still plan on adding more stuff for the 4.1.6 release (or whatever version # it ends up being called … )
As I’ve discussed here (blog) and here (forum), I’ve been working on a new set of icons for the app along with full high-res / high-DPI support. Things no longer look blurry on high resolution screens! This has been a 2 month project so far and I’m really glad to finally unveil it
All of the icons have been redone as vector art (SVG) and match the modern Microsoft Office style guidelines. They can now scale all the way from 100% (96 DPI) up to 400% (384 DPI) without looking too blurry. If you’re at 125% (120 DPI) or 150% (144 DPI) then things may still be a little blurry, but it’ll be loading the 200% images and scaling down instead of the 100% images and scaling up, so it’ll still look a whole lot better than before.
There may still be some layout bugs if you’re at >200% scaling, but they’re not new bugs. I do plan on fixing them. Most prominent is a very obvious glitch in the Colors window.
The only remaining art asset that hasn’t been vectorized is the actual application icon/logo. We’ll see about that …
Change log since the 4.1.5 release:
- New: Completely redone icons throughout the app to match the Microsoft Office style guidelines, with native support for up to 400% scaling (384 DPI)
- New: File -> Save All (thanks @Bruce Bowyer-Smyth!)
- Changed: Ctrl+Shift+F6 and +F7 will now also reset the floating window sizes for History and Layers, respectively (same if you Ctrl+Shift+Click on the button at the top-right of the main window)
- Fixed: An icon handle was being leaked every time a dialog was opened (thanks @null54 for the fix!)
- New: Turkish language
