Acorn 2.0

Great update to Flying Meat’s $50 image editor. Adds 64-bit support, JSTalk scripting (so you can write Acorn plugins using either JavaScript or Python now), layer groups, and a way cool feature for screenshots:

It’s a new preference, and it’s turned off by default since it’ll make some pretty big images — but you can now take screenshots where every window gets its own layer, and the layers are organized by applications in layer groups.

Full release notes here. And even if you don’t buy the full version, you can use it for free in a very useful light mode after the 14-day demo period.
