The Storyboard Suite 5.0 release includes new features, stability and performance enhancements. Storyboard 5.0 will automatically convert Storyboard 4.x and earlier workspaces and project files. Once converted to Storyboard 5.0 format, Storyboard projects are no longer compatible with Storyboard 4 and earlier projects.
Storyboard Designer has been switched from a 32 bit application to 64 bit on all hosted platforms.
A stand-alone launcher that includes a Storyboard runtime and a Storyboard application can now be exported from Storyboard Deisgner.
Storyboard Designer gives the option to export your Storyboard application as a single file for added security on the target. This file is a single ZIP compressed file that includes the model (gapp) file and all of its assets (images, fonts, scripts etc)
Templates have been rebranded and are now called Components. New look, same great taste :)
Export a Storyboard Application directly to a target from within Storyboard Designer.
Now have the ability to lock Storyboard Elements so they can not be moved or their properties changed.
The canvas plugin offers a programmatic way to perform a series of drawing operations without having to deal with all the setup of cloned dynamic render extensions.
Users will be able to provide their own Lua function to implement specialized animation rates.
Users of 32 bit Linux will need to download 64 bit libraries to run the installer.
Storyboard Designer requires Mac OS X 10.8 or greater due to the requirement by the Java 8 runtime from Oracle.
