This release includes the brand-new cairo rendering engine, as well as our improvements – simple plugins system and disabled keyframes. That’s it – the features developed during the work on Morevna Project Demo now officially included into Synfig and this is a significant milestone for us, of course.

And yes, Synfig isn’t crashing anymore when you try to disable keyframes. ~_^ The new version also includes the stickman template, available as a plugin called “Simple Skeleton”. That means the stickman is now a part of Synfig Studio and will be updated with its development. Though, we do not exclude possibility of publishing more alternative versions of stickman, but they will be provided as Synfig plugins from now.

    Why wasn’t the character template included http://morevnaproject.org/2013/04/15/character-template-tutorial/ also the Camera widget http://morevnaproject.org/2008/11/27/camera-widget/

    If you watched my tutorial (http://morevnaproject.org/2013/04/15/character-template-tutorial/) then you probably noticed that the character template is not defined by single file – it is a system of files with centralized library. Even more it’s based on the directory structure with particular workflow. Thus, I don’t see a way to implement it as a plugin, because there is a question: where you put the library files if you apply this character into arbitrary synfig file?

    For camera widget: It turned out that we don’t use it much really. Real-world testing shows that it’s pretty much ok to have Group layer in combination with rotate layer to achieve the same effect. That’s our experience, of course.
