Build 17.04.2010: Changes in this build:
  • New feature: Grouped Presentations, including new layouts and animations for grouped presentations. This gives you the option to throw away your outline slide and visualize groups within your presentations right away.
  • New feature: Customize the overview look of a presentation. This allows you to decide yourself what people should see before you switch to the first image. This gives you the unique possibility to really use the overview setting to illustrate what will happen during your presentation.
  • Smoother animations: The kind of animations are unchanged, but they are visualized a lot smoother now - using vertical sync for the technical interested users. :-)
  • New feature: Drag & Drop your images and folders onto the main window to open presentations.
  • Linux build: There is a linux build available now, but it is just an experimental version. You might observe problems with the central control panel and the full screen mode. Feedback on this is highly appreciated.
  • Bugfix: Screen cheese on windows fixed.
