Flying Meat Software has released version 3.0 of Acorn, its increasingly powerful graphics editing app for Mac OS X. The new release brings a smorgasbord of new features, including layer styles, live gradients, instant alpha, a variety of new filters, and compatibility with Photoshop’s PSD file format. The 3.0 release was followed in short order by a minor bump to Acorn 3.0.1, which comes with over thirty bug fixes and corrections. ($49.99 new from Flying Meat’s online store or from the Mac App Store, $19.99 upgrade, 14.8 MB)
