  1. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.16-1~xtradeb1

    * New upstream release.
    * Tools > Popup Text: added [Edit] button for easier customization.
    (user-defined cache of special characters for input into text widgets)
    * Select > Copy/Complex: new tool for copy and paste of areas having complex and/or low-contrast boundaries. Similar to prior “Select Hairy”.
    * Preferences: most changes no longer require an application restart.
    * PT Panorama was removed because underlying tool [Hugin] has disappeared.

  2. Updates says:

    New version available -> fotoxx 22.15-1~xtradeb1

    * New upstream release.
    * Windows WSL: speedup code was removed. Fotoxx under WSL is fast enough for image files in the Linux file system, e.g. /home//Pictures/…
    * Windows WSL: use higher tolerance for file mod-time difference detection.
    * New: Rename Folder: rename the current folder (image gallery).
    * Album Create: better UI direction when creating an initially empty album.
    * New: Batch Copy/Move: copy or move selected image files to a new folder.

    * Bugfix: Remove Halo: ‘undo’ drag: crash if pixel RGB is 0/0/0.
    * Bugfix: Crop: drag crop edge over window edge: drag fails to release.
    * Bugfix: Select > Edge Blend: zero contrast area creates ‘nan’ RGB values.
    * Bugfix: Markup > Oval: stop automatic draw of prior oval.
    * Bugfix: Copy From Image: set current scale into dialog widget.
