Google trouble

You have probably noticed that the ads served by Google on the pages in the Gallery section disappeared 3 days ago. These ads have been bringing a little money and helped to keep the site running. Now the ads are gone and Google does not seem to like rw-designer anymore. So, until the situation is resolved, you'll see a very different kind of ads. Ads that are not really ads.

Supporting vector layers in the next RWPaint is only half of the solution. Sure, you can draw your vector pictures, rasterize them and save them as PNGs, but wouldn't it be better if there were a more direct way to interact with the outside world?

Slightly better Polygon

The Polygon tool will be a bit better in the future version of RWPaint and other RW apps.

To help you get started with your user icon, I have uploaded a new tutorial that makes use of the new features in beta version of RWPaint. Enjoy.

User icons changing

As you may have noticed, that gray icon displayed to the left of all user comments is finally gone. Replaced by another gray icon. That's what I call progress.

Public beta of next RWPaint

New version of RealWorld Paint is one step closer. Today, I am making available a public beta of the 2012.1 version. If you want to help finding errors or suggest changes or if you are just curious, feel free to grab the .zip and give it a try.
