Tiled 0.7.2 released

Since a stable release of 0.8.0 could still take a while, I've decided to make another release with some fixes made since 0.7.1. The changes:

  • Added support for associating an image with a map object
  • Fixed not being able to move an object group
  • Fixed unable to select small map objects (by Jared Adams)
  • Fixed references to external tilesets that are not in the same directory
  • Fixed some files missing from tiled-core.jar (by Jared Adams)
  • Updated The Mana World plugin to detect the collision layer correctly (by Jared Adams)
  • Updated minimum Java version to 1.5

Tiled 0.7.1 released

Shortly after we released Tiled 0.7.0, a number of issues were found. Some of them were pretty critical or meant basic functionality was broken, so I decided not to wait too long with making a new release. The changes:

  • Added support for a margin around a tileset image
  • Improved the tileset manager and allow tileset reorganizing (by Jared Adams)
  • Fixed automatically adding extension to tileset Save As... dialog
  • Fixed saving/loading of layers with an origin other than 0,0
  • Fixed map resize to apply the offset to layers not matching the map bounds
  • Fixed loading of object group properties
  • Fixed duplicates of object groups to not share the objects
  • Fixed Lua export to increase firstgid of tilesets properly (by Jelle Geerts)
  • Fixed saving of property values that contain quotes
  • Fixed the state of menu actions when starting up without a map

Repository switched to Mercurial

After a two week testing period, the official source code repository has been switched over from Subversion to Mercurial. This version control system is not much more complicated than Subversion, while offering a lot of advantages. If you've been following Tiled development using Subversion and have questions about the new repository, feel free to contact us!

Tiled 0.7.0 in active development

Just a quick note that Tiled 0.7.0 is back in development, after quite a long hiatus! We're going to be working toward a beta release first, and we're hoping for a lot of community involvement.
