Hi everyone!

Winter holidays are almost here and so we are in a hurry to release our last version for this year. Today’s release adds new iOS 7 and ZURB Foundation stencils. Other changes include various small improvements and bug fixes. Read on for more details.

iOS 7 stencil

This version adds a new iOS 7 stencil that replaces already outdated iPhone and iPad stencils. This stencils takes advantage of all the latest features to make creating good looking iOS wireframes a quick, easy and fun process.

iOS 7 stencil

The stencil is organized in several categories to simplify the access to different components. Bars, Controls, Forms and Tables categories group common controls and views. iPhone and iPad categories contain device bezels and device specific components and views. Additionally the stencil includes Safari components for wireframing websites on iPhone and iPad, and 50+ common iOS icons.

ZURB Foundation stencil

Another addition in this version is the ZURB Foundation stencil for the popular web framework by ZURB.

ZURB Foundation stencil

This stencil is based on Foundation 5 and for convenience it’s organized into 7 categories: Buttons, Callouts & Prompts, Content, Forms, Media, Navigation and Typography.

Additionally there is a new Foundation Icons pack that bundles icons from the Foundation Icon Font by ZURB and that can be used together with the Foundation stencil.

Ubuntu 13.10 support

Some of you have reported issues with the top menu under Ubuntu 13.10. Today’s release adds a workaround for Ubuntu 13.10 that disables the global menu and moves it within the application. If you install the Debian package from our website then you’ll get this fix automatically. If you have a different kind of installation then you can enable this fix manually by starting WireframeSketcher like this:

$ env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 /opt/WireframeSketcherStudio/sketcher

Additionally, this version improves the way WireframeSketcher integrates with Unity Launcher.
