download the trial version, you will have it *interactively*!

Hm.. won't it screw with my full Pro Motion 5.1 install though?

no, it's a separate installation.

so far as I went, I don't understand why after sorting the palette (which is now a bit tricky) I need to remap colors manually?

I think I'll just wait until I get the update binary.

What? .. and tricky how?

yes.  I don't yet know whether it can be set up in preferences or whether a hotkey can be assigned.  it's tricky because it's not accessible from the Color menu on top like it was before: there's another menu just under the palette box.  you'll see. :)

Ok, so I got the update binary in the mail today.. and the remapping of colours does, indeed, seem quite cumbersome.

The new layer feature is quite weird too.. it does work once I understood how to use it properly,but it still seems like it could be made alot easier.

The two most useful features of the new promotion that I saw (and helped give input on) are the improved dither tools (which now works a bit more like a preset color ramp) and the auto darken/lighten color mode (this allows you to pixel much like one would paint in CG)

Has anyone heard of a fix for the Firefox 3 blurry-zooming feature yet? Or better, a way to roll a firefox install back to the older version? Pleas.

Wow, do this:

1- get the firefox 2 installer from here: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-older.html
2- install it on top of your newer install, it doesn't care.
3- everything works, nothing is broken. You might have to rollback any plugins you've upgraded, but it'll do that for you.

I can't believe that works, but it works.


EDIT: This actually might break your stuff, see below.

I installed FireFox2 again and it's having terrible drawing issues with the GUI. Hell, at first I installed it and it didn't even work. Now the bookmark toolbar 'doubles' itself over my tabs constantly, and lots of transparency issues and such. It's a pain in the ass :/
