Huggle 3 is coming: now even with the instant reverts, more cookies and for Linux and Mac OS

Note: Huggle 3 is already available for testing, click here to get it!!

We would like to announce that the development of Huggle 2x has been stopped for inclusion of new features; support of the tool will remain for at least 3 months after the release of Huggle 3.0, which means that bugs will be resolved, while implementation of new features will be postponed to the next version which will replace the current version.

Huggle 3 is written in C++ and Python and the main changes are: compatibility with Linux and Mac OS, scripting interface and better performance. We are all concentrating on the development of this version; however, the release date of the first beta version should not be sooner than end of 2012, while the stable version should be ready a few months after that, but if more people joined the team, everything could change!
