Working on those last changes before release...

Every day we are struggling to keep ourselves from adding features! We decided a week ago to freeze the feature list and work toward a bug-free beta, even if it's missing some things.

We're still finding and fixing little bugs, but we don't think there are many left. I think we're going to have a great beta release.

Last night I changed the way the viewpoint icons work. Now the appropriate button stays down until you select another preset view or rotate with the mouse. I'm worried that users will not realize that you can rotate to an arbitrary view with the mouse, but I don't think there's anything we can add to the screen to make it apparent.

I hope the lack of scrollbars will make the user try the mouse buttons to pan the view. I think that will lead to discovery of how the mouse works in the view window.
