New v1.2 release of OpenToonz!

Congratulations to the developers of OpenToonz who have just released a new version of OpenToonz.  It’s considered a minor release but there are major changes included.

The primary reason for it being an incremental/minor version update is that file compatibility is maintained… also a very good thing.

Here is a breakdown of the changes collected in this official release.

And… keep in mind the developers are already off and running toward the next version so keep an eye out for useful updates distributed in the nightly releases too.
