Ruby Red Remixed

The next major release of Leonardo, Glowing Green, is still a work in progress. However, we didn’t want you to have to wait until 2011 for some cool new stuff. So for New Years Eve we’ve got a new release called Ruby Red Remixed with some great new features and tons of bug fixes.

New Features

Just a few of the great new features and bug fixes in Ruby Red Remixed.

Infinite Canvas: The canvas will automatically grow as you add new objects to your drawing, even if they are beyond the edges of the document. Never run out of space again.

Draggable guidelines: create guidelines by dragging them out from the ruler. Objects will snap to them automatically.

Flickr upload support: Now you can upload your creations directly to Flickr as well as Twitter.

Improved SVG Import: Lots of Illustrator symbols can be imported now by exporting them as SVG from Illustrator.

New Rectangle UI: set rectangle corner radius and gradients directly with handles instead of with a palette. Much easier to use.
