Drawpile 2.0.5 Release

June 26, 2017

Version 2.0.5 is now out! This release brings many general usability improvements and fixes a few bugs.

Bugs fixed in this release:

  • Fixed flood fill expansion (regression)
  • Fixed concurrency problem in recording playback (controls out of sync with actual playback)
  • Fixed zooming with ctrl+stylus motion
  • Fixed language changing
  • Fixed tool selection when "select all" command was used and the rectangular selection tool was already selected
  • Fixed a bug in the server GUI that could reset server settings

Usability improvements:

  • The number of remembered host addresses is now limited
  • Enter and Esc keys can now be used to end or cancel Bezier curve drawing
  • If a selection exists, undo first undos the selection transformation
  • Improved latency hiding behaviour (avoids blinking strokes while drawing caused by repeated canvas rollbacks)
  • Canvas is now locked on autoreset and a notification chat message is sent
  • Layer selection is now restored after session reset
  • Removed "persistent session" option from the host dialog (this option was misleading since persistence may not be available on the target server. Once a session is started, it can be made persistent via the session settings dialog if the server supports it.)

New features:

  • Added a built-in tablet testing tool
  • Added an option to hide the server address in the status bar
  • Added an option to disable tool toggling shortcut
  • All admin HTTP queries are now logged
  • Added a log file for debug messages

Linux specific fixes:

  • Fixed server build with systemd integration enabled
  • Qt version in AppImage downgraded to 5.6, as tablet hover events are broken in Qt 5.7 and newer
