Release notes for 1.1.0 (2014-03-27)

This is an experimental release. Help us testing!
(thanks Josef Prusa for nagging about some of these features!)

New features:

  • New algorithm for single-width thin walls, now faster and more accurate
  • New algorithm for linear gap fill: no more shaking and adaptive extrusion width!
  • New option for turning autocentering off in the plater
  • Ability to set per-object and per-region settings
  • New object editor window for composing multi-part objects (no need to use AMF files anymore)
  • Support for modifier meshes to apply distinct local settings by intersecting them with the main model
  • Import/export entire configuration bundles
  • Per-region settings are now written to AMF files and read back in (they could be even assigned from a CAD)
  • New option for generating internal interface shells between multi-part objects (useful for translucent objects or manually-designed support material)
  • New pillars support material for saving time and material and easier removal

Improvements:

  • Huge internal refactoring for better modularity and less memory usage
  • More detailed thumbnails in plater
  • Prevent user from saving a preset named "- default -" which could lead to confusion
  • Real-time validation for most config options

Changes:

  • The Spiral Vase option is now more strict because it will require user to set other options in a compatible way for it to work. This might change again in the future.
  • The Fill Density option is now expressed as a percentage and uses a combobox

Known issues:

  • On Windows, some changes to configuration are ignored and not saved. It happens very randomly so it's hard to fix, but it's a high priority issue
