Development release 2.0
Oki time for a development release.
We need some help with testing, save often :-)

Mac release comes tomorrow.

Some Notes (more things have changed but I have forgotten them)
-------------

- Rewrote to use wx as backend for graphics
It allows us to use more (native) widgets in the future and
copy-paste in text widgets, native fonts and so on.
Much have been rewritten so much can be broken,
please report bugs in the forum.
[dgud] and [Micheus]

- Removed/Changed some features that was hard to port to wx
Setting/removing keyboard shortcuts have changed, see help.
Preview rendering is always on.
Right Click menu icons have been removed.

- Changed the installer for all OS'es, to behave more like native apps.
-- Linux: includes desktop shortcuts with icons.
-- Windows: allows the wings to moved after install
-- Mac: More native apperance, menu in the top bar

- Added edge/hardness/invert command [Mark Whittemore]

- Removed YafRay plugin and added a new YafaRay plugin [oort]
Ported all render plugins to use the new gui. [Micheus]

- Added a file merge dialog so the user can choose what to import. [micheus]

RE: Development release 2.0
dgud,
Thank you for the new release.

Micheus,
Thank you very much for all your work on cleaning up and porting the YafaRay plugin to wxWidgets.

Users who are running Panda Antivirus will need to temporarily disable their antivirus in order to install Wings3D 2.0. After installation, you can turn your antivirus back on. This seems to be a false positive for viruses in the installer.

RE: Development release 2.0
Any chance we can get a list of features that wasn't ported over to wxWidgets?

I just gave it a very quick spin and the new look definitely takes some getting used to. Being able to copy paste is going to be great though Smile

Looking forward to playing around with this some more.

RE: Development release 2.0
Very cool!
Can the windows be made dockable in the future?

RE: Development release 2.0
First separate windows than dockable.
Now we have ported the dialogs then it's time for the windows to be real windows,
and maybe dockable it depends of how stable that code is in wxWidgets.
