Today we released version 1.0.1! A lot of new stuff comes with this release:
Native Linux Support
We finally have a Linux release! With V1.0.1 comes native Linux support. We’ve tested Other World Mapper with Ubuntu, Fedora and Debian. We will be expanding our testing to other distros, but if you encounter any issues with yours, let us know so we can look into it and fix it.
This release is an old school tarball, but we are considering distro specific packages. Let us know what you think.
Opening (Door) Tool Changes
We added more options to the door/window tool, now called Opening Tool. Now you can add gaps in the wall, bars, open doors and more.
Fill/Archipelago option for landmasses
The Landmass Tool now has a fill/archipelago option. Select the Fill draw mode and define an area to generate landmasses.
Colorize Blend Modes for Features
Colorize feature now has a Blend Mode option. The blend mode changes how the colorize is applied to allow different effects.
We added new artwork to both the Basic and Expansion versions.

This new setting allows you to set which items types you would like to include in selections.
