Bug fix updates to Vectoraster 6 and DotPass

Over the weekend two small updates have been released:

Vectoraster 6.1.2 for Mac OS X
- Fixes a bug where source images included as backgrounds in exported rasters would be mirrored vertically.

Vectoraster 6.1.0 update problems

A new small update (v 6.1.0) of Vectoraster was just released a few hour ago, and sent out through the update system. However, unfortunately it seems something was wrong with the file and the updated app didn't work for some users. For now we've rolled back the version to 6.0.9, so if you're having problem with the new version you can just download the old version again.

We're now investigating what has gone wrong, and we'll re-release the version as soon as we fix the problem. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Update Oct 18: The problem should now be resolved, v6.1.0 has been re-uploaded and the new build should hopefully work better.

Update Oct 23: To avoid confusion with the bad v6.1.0 file we've now released a 6.1.1 version, this also includes some improvements to stability for Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 users.

Vectoraster 6 reviewed

If you're looking for a neutral opinion about Vectoraster 6, the website Creative Mac (and a whole bunch of affiliated Digital Media Net-sites) just published a new review of Vectoraster 6 for you to check out.

If you just want the quick version, here's how it ends (spoilers):

There are so many different values to dive into, it will take hours of use to scratch the surface of the variations that are possible with the software. Download the software which is free to try out, and only $12 to upgrade from earlier versions. If you don't have it yet, it's still only $32, which is cheaper than most plugins for any raster or vector design software you may be currently using. - Ko Maruyama
