Hello friends of Balsamiq!
Today's release brings about a grab bag of little new features and bug fixes. Nothing earth-shattering, but some welcome additions I'm sure.
OK here we go:
We added a fourth rotation option to the Label control, in the property inspector. We're calling it "slanted", check it out:
We find it very useful to "stamp" or tag a mockup with a message to help the team understand where in the process the mockup is. I'm sure you'll find many more uses for it. 🙂
This was a good idea that came via a tweet by Matt Obee:
Basically it's a new geometric shape selection that draws a dashed rounded-corner rectangle. You could have already achieved this with a border option in the Canvas control, but this way you'll be able to have a text label in the center of the shape.
This is very useful if you're building high-level wireframes and need to designate an area as a place-holder for instance.
We continued the work on cleaning up and adding new icons, we now have 226 of them!
Thanks to all those who asked for new icons, via this GetSatisfaction thread or this one or this one or this one or this one or this one or this tweet.
We added a few with the last release, and now we're adding the rest.
Thanks to Ross and Алексей Волков for helping us fix this.
There's a new button in the iPhone property inspector:
Select it and the background will become transparent, so that you can easily mock up screens that go past the view-port of the iPhone.
Easy! Just install from our download page on top of your current installation. You won't have to re-register.
As always, if you hit any snags with the new build let us know immediately and we'll fix it right up! 🙂
For posterity, these are the version numbers of today's release:
We are still interviewing for the devops job position. We received a few good applications already, so don't be shy! Send the link to all your friends! http://blogs.balsamiq.com/team/2011/09/12/devops/
We are working on streamlining our myBalsamiq deployment procedures and on stabilizing the build to make it scale. The app is pretty much feature-complete at this point, we just need to make sure it's rock solid before we can launch it.
Oh, and Paolo got married last weekend! 🙂
Peldi for the Balsamiq team
I just did another micro-release today to fix 3 issues: a text clipping in the multiline button control, an issue with the geometric shape control, and removed the default text from Text Input and Text Area controls. Updated the build numbers above to 2.1.5 to reflect this.

Love Mockups, love the updates – but are we missing a set of release notes, since i see 2.1.6 available for download?
[Peldi: you’re right, sorry James! 2.1.6 was a hotfix to fix this one bug: http://community.balsamiq.com/balsamiq/topics/inline_editing_closes_on_new_items%5D
Congrats Paolo for your marriage!
Way to go peldi
Peldi, there is a clipping issue in the Title control too.
