Slammer

Licence: Shareware ($20)
Version 1.0.1 | Release Date: 2009-11-18 | Download

New Features:

  • Themes:

    Slammer now has theme support to change the color of the rulers and border. The unibody theme has been perfected and it looks sleekier than ever.

  • Measurement Mode:

    Slammer 1.0 improves upon the experimental measurement feature by providing a full fledged measurement mode. You can now simply click and drag to measure after setting slammer in measurement mode. Pressing the SHIFT key keeps the line straight. The drawing code has also been cleaned up to make it look and feel crisp.

  • JSON Export:

    You can now export the Slammer templates as JSON files. Part of Slammer 1.0 is also the open source jSlammer script which can display Slammer templates on any website with just one line of code. The other advantage of using an open format like JSON is that developers can write scripts to integrate the slammer data with other applications.

  • On Layout:

    Ringce is introducing On Layout, a resource dedicated to exploring layout principles. It also serves as a gallery for reusable Slammer templates.

  • Preferences Window:

    Apart from the new theme chooser pane, the new preferences window also allows you to set arbitrary values for ruler origins.

Tweaks:

  • You can no longer drag the rulers to change origin. Dragging rulers moves the window. Command + Drag will change the origin.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed a bug where Slammer complained incorrectly about invalid license when launching Slammer by opening a template.
Version 0.9.6 | Release Date: 2009-11-02 | Download

Bug Fixes
