Thu Feb 23, 2017 7:36 pm

Hi everyone, I'm very pleased to announce that Magic 2.01b is now available for testing.

2.01 is the first version after 2.0, and it contains many important bug fixes. We strongly recommend all users to download it.

Perhaps even more importantly, 2.01 now contains support for the Interactive Shader Format (ISF) v2 specification, and it also includes over 200 new ISF filters from the ISF sample pack:

Wow! Thanks so much to the developers at Vidvox for allowing us to include the ISF sample pack in the Magic release. We're really excited that so many new effects are available to Magic users.

To download Magic 2.01b, head to our Beta download page: Remember, all 2.xx updates to Magic are completely free for Version 2 customers.

I hope you enjoy, and if you have any questions/comments/feedback/etc., please don't hesistate to post in the General Discussion forum.

Thanks so much!
