The first revision of AcaPixus PixBlender was released on September 20th, 2005. The program is still being developed and upgrades to new revisions are free to licensed users - and obviously unlicensed users as well.

Improvements to future revisions should include - not necessarily in this order:

  1. Refinement of internal parameters
  2. Support for preserving IPTC and EXIF info
  3. 48 bit support
  4. More blending modes
