Release: GL Tools, v20080129

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20080129
Release Notes

Possibly addressed some config errors with GL Spline. Added Spline Stippling (yes!), added Line Texturing.

Let me know if splines start acting strangely; they've had a lot of internal changes take place.

There's an annoying behaviour with spline stippling where Input Stipple patterns that have no neighboring 1's are effectively disabled (0x5555, powers of two, other patterns). Setting scale to anything greater than 1 corrects this. This is expected behaviour, but if it's annoying let me know and I'll try to fix it (probably by forcing scale to have 1 silently added to it, so it'll always be > 1)
