Let the developers know what you think of the software and what can be done to either improve the CFDG language or the Context Free program.

Blend Modes

I think it would be useful for some designs to have different blend modes.
For example, if you want to draw sparks or other light effects you would use a additive mode.

The cross-platform graphics library, AGG, supports all of the blending modes, but I have only used the default source-over-dest mode. I can look into adding blending mode to the shape state.

Hi Mycelium,

I'm preparing a beta of Context Free v3.3 with this blending feature for you to check out. Do you use Windows or Mac?
