Time before a release is both stressful and boring. No exciting large-scale functions are being added, bugs are being found and being fixed, praying that a fix does not destroy anything else. But, occasionally, a small step for a developer can be a giant leap for the end user.

Possibly the biggest change in RealWorld Icon Editor 2008.1 will be a redesigned raster editor and scripting subsystem. This change is a major one and it is responsible for the long period between the upcoming and the previous versions. Some aspects of the new raster editor were already discussed in previous posts (here, here, here, and here) and an incomplete version can be seen in RW Cursor Editor or in the beta of RW Photos.
