So... What's else exactly is New in Howler 2020?

If there is just one thing to mention, to single out:  Brushes!

But there's also so much more. Here are some recent developments as we crank through the new builds:

Here is a log of some of the internal notes shared with the beta team, through recent builds, as we go along with implementing new features, fixes and cool tools and brushes. As you may notice, a lot of focus is on brushes and new media.

Build 40 (hopefully) addresses 2 critical bugs.

Build 41 is here -  fixes the storing from the undo browser. When you're in the undo stack you can store an image from there, it should now be added as expected in the stored images stack. This is important if you want to recover a prior stored image from the history (undo) stack but have since changed the size. You can send t to stored copy, then restore it as a new image from there.

Release build 42
