More work, more continuing.
The nice fellow who runs Graffletopia pointed out that our Enhanced MetaFile support wasn't working correctly on PowerPC machines, so we've addressed that along with some other issues that have come to light.
Significant progress has been made to the sidebar interface, selected layers and canvases now display much as they did in version 4, which should make a good number of users happy about that change.
A number of known crashers have been addressed as well, however not to the extent that we can mark them as fixed, so please, if you're running the beta releases do send in your crash reports so we can track that.
As always, the beta download page and release notes await!
