    Happy New Year!
        This was a big year as we released Spriter 1.0 and are now on Steam.  We also released two new Art Packs, a new promo video, and a new site and forums.  Now that the foundation is set, 2015 will be an exciting year for Spriter Pro owners.  We already have some amazing unannounced features in the works that we can't wait to share once they're ready to be unveiled.  
        
        I'm currently focused on creating a working, fully featured and well documented reference implementation.  Once finished, this should make creating full Spriter support for any particular authoring system trivial.  And we'll be focusing resources and efforts into helping developers port this to as many languages and authoring systems as possible.  Originally we were going to make this a barebones implementation with support for all Spriter Pro features, but we've decided to take a bit longer and include several implementation and playback features that most developers will want in their arsenal.
        
        Sorry for our slow response times on the forums and tech support during the holidays.  Don't worry, you haven't been forgotten, and we will respond and help you resolve your issues as soon as we can.  We also realize there are a few open bugs with Spriter R2, and we'll do our best to fix them as soon as this implementation is complete.

        On a final note, the Steam Sale ends on January 2nd, so there are only two days left to get Spriter Pro for 50% off.  Also on BrashMonkey.com Spriter Pro and all of our Art Packs and bundles are also 50% until January 2nd using the coupon code HAPPYHOLIDAYS.

        Thank you everyone for a great year, and we look forward to making 2015 an awesome year for Spriter users.

    Hello everyone,
    We're pleased to announce the official release of Spriter 1.0. It's been a long journey, and we'd like to thank all of our glorious Kickstarter backers and Early Adopters for making this possible.
    While this build offers substantial optimizations, and a few feature additions, enhancements, and bug fixes, we're just getting started with where we want to take Spriter. There will continue to be new builds with new features, enhancements, bug fixes, and improved documentation, which will be free updates for Spriter Pro owners. The Essentials version will also continue to get updates with bug fixes, and workflow enhancements.
    Thanks again and enjoy Spriter 1.0!

    Hello everyone!
        Welcome to the first post 1.0 release of Spriter.  Aside from a couple of bug fixes, this release includes a new video help option that lets you watch our YouTube tutorials in a floating window (with links to open the playlists in your default browser).  Video Help will show up immediately upon startup to give guidance for beginners, and the window has an option to disable this behavior.  Spriter will now warn you if you try to save outside the project directory that it won't be able to find it's images, and will also provide an explanation and the expected file structure when you load a file with missing images.
    An important note for Mac users.  There is an optimization in this version that may correct the performance issues some users have been experiencing on the Mac.  Please let me know if this fixes the issue for you, as it seemed to make a significant difference on our machines.
    We will continue to fix bugs and provide minor feature updates, but my primary focus at the moment is completing the developer documentation.
    Lastly, if you're reading this and you don't already own Spriter Pro, or you have a friend who doesn't, Steam is having their Autumn Sale now, and Spriter is 50% off until December 2nd.  Spread the word!
    Thanks everyone, and enjoy the new build!

    it's a definite possibility for the long term.
    good idea. It was already going to have the spinboxes, but that's a good idea. Also, the angle control will have a wheel you can rotate with your mouse.
    The current beta does have a 'protected selection' feature. You can drag, drop, and rotate a selected object even if it's behind others. only if you click a sprite on an area that doesn't overlap the currently selected object(s) will it change the selection.
    yes, that's in there
    yes, the next release will be native UI on Windows, Mac, and, Linux
    yes, all of that is planned for the long term, and the groundwork is already layed for those features.
    thanks for the kind words, and yes, we do want to work with the community to develop an ecosystem of some sort for both the animators and the developers.
    the todolist is huge, but things are going very well on fronts.
    working hard on the next version, and loving every minute of it.
