Acorn 1.1

February 25th, 2008

When Gus Mueller released Acorn, his fundamentally rethought bitmap image editing app, I was excited. Partly because it filled a void in my tool belt, but more because I knew it was the start of something big.

The best thing about a 1.0 release from any skilled developer is you know it’s only the tip of the iceberg. It’s like the debut of a thrilling new television series, or the opening of a great restaurant in your neighborhood. You’re gratified by the immediate rewards, but what’s perhaps more comforting is the promise of more good things to come.

For this lovely little app, good things are starting to come. Congratulations to Gus on today’s release of Acorn 1.1! I’m already looking forward to the next episode.
