Happy New Year!

Excitement is building for our upcoming release of CelAction2D version 4. We have changed the architecture and the look significantly compared to version 3, while keeping all the tools and workflows intact so that current users can just carry on working in it as always without distraction. The new architecture allows us to add more powerful tools, develop more quickly, and stay at the cutting edge of 2D animation technology.

In addition, we've been bringing certain features from version 4 into version 3 so our existing Studio Edition clients can get their hands on them early. This means that these new features are being used right now in real productions, and are being refined and improved according to feedback from users. This would normally happen during the version 4 Beta test, so it's great to get this done in advance.

Aside from development of version 4, our expansion into Canada and Asia continues. Stay tuned for news of great opportunities.

Happy New Year, everyone!
