Hello everyone!

Today’s release focuses on small improvements and also brings a handful of bug fixes. Read on for more details.

OS X Yosemite

New OS X Yosemite is out and we are making sure WireframeSketcher works well with this version. This update fixes the issue with “Helvetica Neue” system font in PDF export so PDFs looks nice and tidy again.

Helvetica Neue on Mac OS X

One big change on OS X Yosemite is the lack of system Java runtime so you’ll need to install one manually before being able to use WireframeSketcher. We are looking into the possibility of bundling WireframeSketcher with its own private runtime, but until then you’ll need to install Java manually.

When running WireframeSketcher on a Mac with no Java runtime installed you’ll be met with this prompt:

Clicking on the “More Info…” button will take you to this Oracle website where you’ll be able to download the latest Java runtime.

New theme feedback

Last version of WireframeSketcher has introduced a new theme for its user interface. This change was not entirely thought through and was mostly dictated by the update to a new version of Eclipse platform. We’d like to get a better idea on how this new theme works for you and if you find it better or worse than the previous theme. Please drop me a short email with what you think.
