Ortelius 1.9.6 Released

Today we release Ortelius 1.9.6, a qualified version for use with OS 10.10 “Yosemite.” This version fixes a serious bug that affected outlined/masked text and labels that was introduced with Yosemite, along with a few other minor bug fixes. It is a free update for all existing users.

If you do not have automatic updates activated, choose Ortelius > Check For Updates from the main menu.

Please be aware there is a known issue with this release. Apple’s Yosemite has introduced an issue with poor response using pinch zoom gestures on the trackpad. Several other software are reporting this issue as well. We have submitted a report to Apple and hope they will address it soon. In the mean time, we have fine-tuned it as much as possible, but understand pinching to zoom does not give the same satisfactory experience we have had in the past and expect. We are keeping a close eye on this.
