The following is a list of added features, changes and fixes:

- Added ability to publish the output of MadMapper through Syphon for use with other applications, such as Syphon Recorder
- Incorporation of a new version of Syphon that optmizes output performance
- Extended tool bar (undo/redo + block affine transform) for manipulation using VNC on iPad

- All surfaces have been provided with the ability to modulate their color

Quad primitives:
- 2D Billboard (no perspective transformation)
- Bezier meshes
- Link/unlink tangents for surface continuity (L shortcut, or right click in the UI)
- Spherize
- Show input mesh option (now hidden by default)
- Show grid mesh option
- Reset quad
- Reset mesh
- Mesh precision defaults to 16 with a maximum of 40
- When using the mesh, the mesh is shown as a bounding rectangle instead of a quad for manipulting perspective
- Offset rotate/scale handle when warping so they do not overlap with the mesh handles
- When adding subdivisions to a grid mesh, it will not reset
- Improved Quad selection procedure

Input view:
- Uses blending for rendering selected media
- Context menu *right click* for some preset configurations (fulltage, top, bottom, left, right…)

Snapping:
- Surface to stage
- Mesh to surface
- Mesh to stage
- Multiple selection snap

Movement constraints:
- Shift + mouse constraints along the x or y axis
- alt + keyboard constraints in perspective

- Mask primitive invert option

Circle Primitive:
- Perspective adjustable using 5 points
- Rotation in 2D or perspective space

Media
- Reveal in Finder button for image/movie media files

- Unlimited Presets: allows for taking a "snapshot" of the current configuration

Master:
- Additional background color defaults (grey, red, green, blue)
- Toggle highlight background with a button in view toolbars
- Stage size and stretch outptut options

- Preview background image info is now stored in the project file
- Hide cursor in output
- Output curor moves to the center of the dragged handle
- Undo stack goes from unlimited to 1000 commands
- New icon file for .mad documents

Preferences:
- Media
- Linear filtering option
- DMX

- Show extended toolbar

Fixes:
- Handle or Quad jumping
- Mask creation cursor remaining after selecting a different tool
- Turning off Object Isolation shows mesh controls on non-selected Quads
- Constrained Desktop ratio not working with prime numbers bigger than 800 x 600
- Switching between Syphon media inputs displaying white frames
- Undo problem with Quad rotations in the input window
- Mask creation not starting when first clicking on the tool button to enable it
- Overall speed optimizations and improvements
