Context Free 2.1beta2 has been uploaded

Post by MtnViewJohn »

Get it here

New Features in 2.1 beta 2
  • Tiled rendering for cfdg mosaics (same as 2.1 beta1)
  • Tiled cfdgs will display as tiled
  • If the tile transform is skewed then Context Free can save a superset of the tile unit to form a rectangular grid
  • You can pipe a cfdg file into cfdg on stdin
  • cfdg uses 6 letter variation codes, Context Free still uses 3 letter codes
  • You can upload directly from Context Free to the gallery site
  • The color calculator is completely revamped to be easier to use (and the code is less hideous now)
  • Only generates 32-bit PNG files is the background is non-opaque, otherwise generates 8- or 24-bit PNG files
  • Upgraded from AGG 2.3 to AGG 2.5
Bug Fixes:
  • non-opaque shapes composited correctly
  • Fixed URLs in help menu
  • Makefile fixes for various Unix/Linux
  • Fixed bug in registration of .cfdg file extension

I have noticed that if a cfdg filename has spaces in it then uploading from Context Free fails. Until this is fixed, when you are uploading from Context Free edit the upload filename and replace spaces with underlines. You don't need to rename your cfdg file, just change the filename in the upload form.
