Very impressive for an open-source animation program. Are there any chances of a universal binary in the future (if that's even possible considering the nature of the libraries)? That aside, it shows some great potential. Definitely keeping my eye on this one.

. Great release from Patrick Corrieri. Nice to see some entry level animation software for the Mac. ( I don't know if the Windows version came first or vice-versa but it is a shame that Mac developers don't produce great applications for young minds to grow/develop with and to explore their creative potential with ) Apart from a few exceptions there are no well-made tools for kids and beginners to experiment with digital art for the Mac. There are also not enough applications/games that aren't just beat'em-ups or inane puzzle games - Which often leads people to lump Mac users in the same mindless nerdy groupings as our PC users often are. Try finding some decent Mac learning applications for the young - They don't exist. Kudos to Mr.Corrieri for bringing a little bit of creative fun back to the Mac !
