DrawPile 0.9.7 released

DrawPile is an open source, oriented drawing program which is similar to OpenCanvas, and it’s used for creating sketches. In addition to other features, DrawPile allows you to share your drawings live with other users over the internet, and you can draw simultaneously on the same picture.

This latest release DrawPile 0.9.7 fixes two major bugs discovered in the previous version:

  • The remote host selection dropdown would not work correctly if it contained more than one address
  • Drawpile would crash when reordering layers in certain circumstances

Additionally, this release adds one very interesting new feature: lag-free painting in network mode. Previously, network latency was hidden (with varying success) by painting to a temporary layer while the drawing commands were making their way to the server and back. This worked OK for the basic brushes, but poorly with certain blending modes and not at all with the new Watercolor brush. More info
