Least Secret Feature in Upcoming Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry
The ever-busy Pixelmator Team is about to release a new major version of Pixelmator: Pixelmator 2.1, codenamed Cherry. We’ve been working very hard on it for a few months now, and Cherry is one of the best major Pixelmator updates we have ever put together.
Today I am very excited to unveil the least secret feature of Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry: complete Pixelmator support for the new Retina display on the MacBook Pro. Yep, Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry is already fully Retina-ready, including all of the user interface elements as well as the image editing engine itself. And, what can I say—Pixelmator on the new MacBook Pro with Retina display (we’ve got a few of those around the office) looks totally incredible.
The Retina display is, of course, a brilliant fit for image editing using Pixelmator. But we’re also impressed by the MacBook Pro’s speed and power, HD graphics and video support, beautiful looks, and so many other great features. Apple did a phenomenal job on the new MacBook Pro. It is very likely the best Mac that has ever been made, and surely the best laptop on the planet.
The new Pixelmator 2.1 Cherry includes Retina support and some other fantastic new features, and it is coming your way very soon. Those of you who want a peek at what’s ahead can click here for a glimpse.
