Version 2.0.6 is now out!

This release fixes many bugs, including a few that could cause the canvas to disappear on session reset. An important new feature is support for external user accounts. You can now register usernames at the drawpile.net website for use on the public server.

A full list of new features and bugfixes can be found in the release announcement.

Version 2.0.5 is now out!
Lots of bug fixes in this release, such as the layer selection resetting when a session is reset and the "blinking pen strokes" problem that sometimes occurs when many people are drawing simultaneously.
A full list of changes can be found in the release notes: https://drawpile.net/news/release-2.0.5/

Version 2.0.4 is now out!
This version adds some further refinements to the new brush dock layout. Eraser is back as a separate tool, but the new way of turning any brush into an eraser is also still there, so both the old and the new workflows are now supported.
Also new in this release:
- A bezier curve tool
- Flood fill size limit to help against accidental layer fills
- Erase mode for flood fill
- New way of joining sessions using "room codes"

Version 2.0.3 is now out!

Among other things, this release brings back the brush choice buttons many have been waiting for. Many irritating bugs have also been squashed, such as:

* Brush strokes disappearing on some new layers
* Empty canvas after reset
* Missing ctrl/alt modifiers when using a tablet stylus
* Fixed server crash when a new user joins
* Fixed connection error when logging in to a server and having non-ASCII characters in the username (server bug)

The public server has now been switched over to version 2.0. If you try connecting with a 1.0 series client, you will get an error message that says "Incompatible server."

Since there are still many other servers for 1.x, the old version is still available for download and can be used in parallel with 2.0.

Version 2.0.0 stable is finally out!

This is major update that replaces the current 1.0.6 stable release. The 2.0 version is not compatible with the 1.0 series. The public server will also be soon updated to the new version.

The 2.0 version brings in a lot of new features and changes. Read the full release announcement at: https://drawpile.net/news/release-2.0.0

Drawpile 2.0 Release Candidate is now out!

This is the last test release before 2.0.0 stable. Changes in this version include:

- Support for parental controls
- New cursors for brush tools
- Selectable default layer
- Movable selections even when cut&paste is disabled

Version 2.0.0 stable will be released in about two weeks. If no bugs are found, the final release will be essentially the same as this one. After 2.0 stable is released, the public server will be switched over to the new version. Unfortunately, the new server is not compatible with the 1.0.6 client. If you encounter any bugs in this release candidate that would keep you from using it instead of 1.0.6, please report them. If major bugs are found that warrant another round of testing, I’ll postpone the 2.0 stable release.

In related news, I tried integrating Krita’s tablet library in this version but, while I did make some progress, I encountered some new technical problems. To get version 2.0 out in reasonable time, I’ll leave the tablet lib integration for later.
