  • Added the ability to load and save 18-bit VGA palettes used by Command and Conquer and many other older games [0000141]
  • Added new template for generating a C# color list from the current palette


  • You can now redraw the selection in the Palette From Image dialog rather than only being allowed to move or resize the existing selection [0000168]

  • Print options didn't scroll if the window was too small
  • Print options occasionally didn't position controls correctly
