Acorn, the “image editor for humans,” is the app I use day in and day out due in no small part because developer, FlyingMeat, keeps it fresh. That said, following the version 3.5 release, which delivered improved magic wand and layer export functionality, we get the inevitable point-update loaded with bug fixes.

FlyingMeat, the mac app developer with the tasty leaping deer logo, has jumped through Apple’s hoops and released Acorn 3.5.1 (release notes) both on their site, as well as the Mac App Store:

• Fixed a bug where drawing with a selection on transparent pixels would come out incorrectly
• Fixed a bug where the delete AppleScript command wasn’t working
• Fixed a bug where the rectangle selection cursor was showing up in the wrong location
• Fixed a bug where writing out a WebP image via AppleScript or JSTalk would always make the background black instead of white
• Fixed a bug where using the Edit ▸ Fill menu to fill a layer with an image would sometimes not fill the entire image
• Fixed a bug where taking your hand off the shift key when moving multiple layers inside a group layer would cause some to be moved by 10x (with the shift key down) and others by 1x
• Fixed a bug where a unique combination of clicking the “trim” option in the web export window while also setting a scale would cause your image to be scaled in an odd manner
• Fixed a bug where setting the opacity for a group layer would incorrectly apply it to layers below it as well
• Fixed a bug where the View ▸ Zoom in / out menu items wouldn’t work on a new canvas view window
• Fixed problem where a single click with the selection tools wouldn’t clear the current selection

You can download a 10-day trial or, if you need the update or are ready to purchase, Acorn 3.5.1 on the Mac App Store.
