Some minutes ago the newest update to iPhix was sent to Apple, this update comes 2 days after iPhix is released in the App Store.
The current iPhix users will know that v1.0 is quite buggy and contains quite the few flaw. Most of these issues are fixed in v1.1 of iPhix, which has an improved engine to make all functions cooperate in harmony. So where Open>Mask>Filter would result in just the filter being applied, the mask is now correctly applied. You can do whatever you want without any of the actions being undone or endangered by another one. Together with this update come a new mysterious filter called “Solar Winds” which randomly tears the image appart and burns it, or at least that’s how it looks. The masks are also bigger so they are actually useful now and various security dialogs have been added.
iPhix 1.1 will probably be released within 2 weeks if it’s approved in one try.
The current version which will automatically receive the update is still available in the App Store : Download
We just released 36-image converter 22.214.171.124, thus keeping our promise what involves our Patch Tuesdays. It was just added to the update page and submitted to Download.com. 36-image converter 4.4.2 adds a new tool called “Add Background” which removes the background color from an image and puts a background image behind it. So it’s actually a software bluescreen function and the first step towards the use of Layers, for which we also updated the engine’s architecture. The frames have been completely renewed and some new frames have been added together with 2 new filters. The three new effects we promised have been replaced by a giant update of the extension manager which fixes a potentially harmful bug.
