New Update

Prerequisites : If the application failed to launch and SlimDX is not installed, download/install end user runtime(for slimDX) (the .net 4 download)

Summary of changes:
  * AO and Shadow options are added to this tool, View > Snap Shot > Take snapshot. This makes it possible to do a quick realistic looking rendering.
  * View > Snap Shot > Set/Clear/Toggle ShadowHolder Flag. If ShadowHolder flag is set on an object, when taking snapshot, only the shadow area of the object will be drawn.
  * A new basic streamline tool, Adjust Static MatCap UV Scale. A static matcap can be set by assigning a cube matcap to an individual object. This tool is used to set the uv scale for selected objects by dragging cursor in viewport.
  * View > AO Enabled. This option will drop viewport frame rates sharply due to multiple off screen renderings.
  * View > Fog Enabled.
  * Edit > Preference > Colors > Viewport Colors > Fog.
  * 3 new basic streamline tool, Adjust FogStart/End/Intensity.
  * Value input feature is added to these basic streamline tools, Axis_Move Axis_Rotate Axis_Scale Plane_Scale Tweak_Scale Polygon_Extrude_AverageNormal Polygon_Extrude_PolygonNormal Edge_Extrude_Face Normal_Direction Shell. Once transforming activated, it is possible to type in value then hit Enter key to apply, while mouse button is still being depressed. The input value will be displayed at top-left of viewport.
  * Edit > Preference > General > Manipulator core size.
  * A new basic streamline tool, Border Offset. Move selected border vertices in open edge normal directions.
