After a busy couple of weeks the massive, free v3.0.1 update is now ready. It adds a LOT of new stuff, so let me summarise the key points in this list:
  • 24 New floor markers
  • Wall mounted buttons
  • Half wall and half-door frames
  • Terrain Wand tool for fast selection of contiguous terrain
  • 'Dungeon Master Tools' to create party-facing image exports with all the treasure and traps hidden from view.
  • Keyboard Remapping
  • "Field Effect" overlays to mark out special regions (e.g. Anti-magic or HP drain)
  • Streamlined wall and door modes
  • Several new fixes, tweaks and shortcuts

Full Change Log:

* PRO: Filter tab for image publishing. Includes 'Dungeon Master Tools' to conceal things from your players.
* PRO: Added new "Field Effects" to tint tiles with Red, Green and/or Blue overlays. Use this to mark special zones like "HP Drain" or "Anti-Magic" or make up new meanings.
* PRO: Added "Covered Pit" marker.
* PRO: Added "Trapped Pit" for trapped pits. i.e. filled with spikes rather than just being a hole in the ground.
* PRO: Added "Barrel" marker.
* PRO: Added "Map" item marker.
* PRO: Added "Purse" marker.
* PRO: Added "Sack" marker.
* PRO: Added "Well" marker.

* ADDED: Page up/down keys scroll the full screen menu pages.
* CHANGED: Streamlined Wall and Door modes into a single Edge mode.

Android Beta
v3.0.1 also sees the first Android release for v3. I've marked this as beta because although it should work just as well as v2 did on tablets, with the release of Android 5 there are likely to be compatibility issues since I don't yet have a device to test it on.

If you have a device which causes problems please let me know. Known trouble areas are the 'android-ey' bits like the file selectors and the note editing box.
