Version 2.1 | Release Date: 2009-01-29 | Download

New Features
* Supports step rotations
* Streamlined Step Display UI
* Moved file outline on to the main window
* Improved line appearance
* Toolbar buttons for Part Browser, Inspector, and Colors

Bugs Fixed
* Fixed MLCad/LDraw spec compatibility issue which caused files containing multiple submodels to not render correctly in MLCad. (All model names are now internally forced to end in .ldr; old files will be automatically fixed as they are opened.)
* LDraw/ldconfig.ldr is now read; previously Bricksmith would only refer to an internal copy
* Renaming a submodel also renames all references to it
* Duplicating models adds a "copy X" suffix
