I've been working on this update for quite some time now, and it's actually been one of the hardest to get to a stable, working condition. That said, it is still nowhere close to the place I'd like it to be, but until then, I thought I'd share with you what exactly it will consist of.
There is a new feature for Pro users that allows you to import and pixelate any image or any size, which will mean you're no longer restricted to working in the 3 choices of a 1:1 aspect ratio, or your wallpaper. Just simply open up any image, hit the 'PIXELATE' button, and save it.
Don't worry if you're not a Pro user though, because I'm bringing in a user-interface refresh, a part of my design language I call Raindrop UX. It's designed to be even easier, cleaner, yet just as powerful as before. Below you can see part of the new UI in action (remember that this is a pre-release build, so things might change before the public release).
Something you can't tell from that screenshot however, are the animations. Animations have been added to as many things as I could think of, which has taken more time than I ever would have thought. On the plus side, it looks and feels so much smoother.
Besides those things, the majority of the update will be small refinements to what's already there. There are a few things that I still plan on adding that I won't mention, just in case they don't make it to the final build, but overall, this update is turning out quite well!
But, I know the question on everyone's mind is when is it coming out. Well, I don't have a set date yet, as features are still being added, and it's still in an Alpha stage, but I do feel confident that it will be out before the end of March at the latest. That said, there will not be an update in February, as 110% of my effort is currently going into this version.
