Ex: /rgb 16 enforces a classic Amiga 4096 color palette, 64 is PC VGA, /rgb 3 is Amstrad CPC...) Added missing messages for /wide and /tall command-line arguments.
Improved : Use GIF as the default format, as PKM can't save the whole palette range.

Improved : Now idles when there is nothing to do. Much less CPUtime use, but the spray is slowed down.
Added : Support for "tall pixel" mode (Each pixel is 1x2). Run the program with "/tall" argument to test. The following tools don't take the ratio into account; Circle, Grad rectangle, Brush rotation, Resizable brushes (diamond, squares, circles...)
Improved : faster color reduction algorithm.
Fixed : "Backspace" shortcut detecting root only on MS filesystems in load/save screen.

Fixed : Floyd steinberg dithering. The error was added to the neighbour pixels, it is now substracted, the results are much better. However, the palette seems to lack saturated colors (in comparison to the one generated by gimp, wich gives more dithering, but better overall subjective ressemblance to the 24bit image.
Improved : Palette now uses RGB components in the full 0-255 range instead of 0-63. All palette functions can be used in HSL color space too.
Improved : directory handling: - Unix users can "make install" and "make uninstall" (as root). - Installation creates shortcuts "grafx2" and "gfx2cfg" in /usr/local/bin - Installation puts data files (icon GIFs, gfx2.dat,..) and the actual binaries in /usr/local/share/grafx2 - At runtime, the programs search and create configuration files (gfx2.cfg and gfx2.ini) in ~/.grafx2 (But if there are some present in program's own directory, they override)
Fixed : program hang in Save/Load (Issue 59)
Improved : Add 32 null bytes at end of PI1 files to make ST Deluxe Paint happy
Improved : Help screens show the keyboard shortcuts from current configuration

Fixed : the display of the current directory size if it is big.
Fixed : drawing with the keyboard. Space key release wasn't taken into account. Now you can plot a single pixel.
Added : Load/Save: "Select Drive" button. Allows a way for the AmigaOS4 version to display the list of drives / volume names.

Fixed : resolution menu behavior when less than 12 resolutions are available.
Removed : useless "vesa info" field in the stats window
Added : Resolution and window size remembered in gfx2.ini.

Improved : Video modes can now be windowed or fullscreen. Also allows to resize the window at runtime.
Imroved : When gfx2.ini is missing, default values are now taken from gfx2.dat.
Added : New configuration tool
Added : Long file names support
Fixed : Use fopen/fread instead of open/read. This is buffered and cross platform.
Fixed : Do not crash if there is more than 1GB ram available
Fixed : Made the code endian-aware and do not assume structure packing
Improved : Rewrote a big part of the program to make it work with SDL under linux, windows, mac os X, and amigaos4. This version will not run directly under good old MS-Dos, but it is still possible to use HX-DOS extender with the windows version.
Introduces a lot of new bugs, most notably missing refresh of screen.
Added: True-color BMP (Windows) and PCX images can be loaded. They will be converted to a 256-color image with palette optimization and Floyd/Steinberg? dithering. Note: some other true-color formats will be added in the next release.
Fixed: Loading corrupt pictures with null dimensions could crash.
Improved: Brush streching is now in "real time" (and snaps to the grid if "Adjust brush picking" is set).
Added: Brush rotation by any angle.

Fixed: The file selector _should_ hang no more on non-image (or corrupt image) files containing data that look like a known format signature.

Added: "Stretch brush".
Added: Now, you can move windows (menus) and even hide the palette menu for picking a color that is behind it (with the key just below <Escape> ).
Fixed: Small bug in "Menu_ratio=2" mode when remapping the screen after color changes.
Added: "Thin" cursor type (looks like VGApaint's one).
Fixed: A few video modes (Modes X with a height multiple of 224 and some others).

This version was 1st shown at the Wired'96 demo party in Belgium. We gave it to many people there, so let's start history from here. Note that there were a few different "90%" versions because we didn't want to change the number just for tiny bug-fixes.
