Acorn 4.0.5: Two Dozen Plus Fixes, Changes, Tweaks
There are gods among men and just plain cool people — Gus Mueller et al at Flying Meat Software number among the latter, though I have my suspicions about the former. Service matters and Acorn 4.0.5, with its score and more bug fixes, is a case in point.

— Fixed a bug where the Save panel would sometimes show a checkbox in the middle of the file listing when you had versions turned on.
— Fixed a bug where the tools palette color well wouldn’t update its color if you changed the color of a text box via the font palette.
— Change: When calling a filter via the Filter menu, it is now immediately used for the “Last Filter” menu item instead of waiting for a layer to flatten its filters.
— Fixed a bug where the Grid filter wasn’t drawing correctly with some oddball settings.
— Fixed some various color mismatch problems with the brush and Edit ▸ Fill command.
— Fixed a problem where the flood fill tool was using a bad color with images which had their colorspace set to device RGB.
— Fixed a problem where temporary undo files weren’t being cleaned up.
— Performance improvements when drawing on a retina display, as well as color space fixes on a retina display.
— Making a magic wand selection is a little bit faster now.
