An important work has been done on strokes to reduce their complexity and give more fluidity to drawing. The weight of new OpenBoard documents is indeed greatly reduced.
The detailed view has been deleted for apps, interactivities, images, sounds and videos. You can simply drag and drop these elements from the library tab. To set as background an image, it is now done via the image menu after it has been dropped to the page.
You can now adjust it in the background window, with the option of a lined background. This new parameter can be set for each page of a document. A new page is set with the background settings of the current page. A new button on the background window resets the grid size to its default value. When OpenBoard starts, the size is initialized to represent approximately 1 cm on the screen. Indeed, the size of the grid is preserved while importing a document on another computer. Geometry tools have been adjusted to fit this initialization.
You can now choose the color of the grid and the its opacity on dark and light backgrounds. The grid opacity is ignored if the zoom is lower than ~0.7.
Thumbnails can be reordered using the pen/mouse, by drag and drop. The "move up page" and "move down page" icons have been retired. The "remove page" and "duplicate page" icons' size was increased by a factor of 2.
The screen recording is finally available on Linux. ffmpeg is used for video encoding, with the MP4 format (h264/AAC).
Above a certain size (set in preferences), a circle preview appears.
A new parameter in the configuration file allows to hide the "check for software update" option in the OpenBoard menu.
Because planete-sankore.org is down, the research applications (image, audio, video and flash medias) had to be deleted.
The Clock widget used in Open-Sankore has been added to the library.
Many errors, mainly on secured sites (https). The internal web navigator may be removed, for security reasons, on a future release of OpenBoard.
Most issues concerning data loss have been resolved. However, in some cases (network context, slow computers), some features related to the data saving may not behave as expected. For example, it is possible for the duplication of a page to be done before the save of the duplicated page by the thread which has to perform this save. If so, you have to delete the new page and retry the duplication on the original page.
