In this issue:
20 Years of Project Dogwaffle - lots of waffling and howling!
Yes, can you believe it? It's been 20 years since Dan Ritchies started coding Project Dogwaffle. Do you remember the last of the free releases? It was v11.1b
You can see what happened since then over the years here:
Do you remember the first major release with particle brushes for grass?
Or the mirror and kaleidoscope tool?
Or the paint program within the paint program: Penny paint?
And the boxed release that was published in the UK by Fasttrak, and even featured on QVC in Europe?
The first Dogwaffler of the Moment in the DOTM pages was a German artist named Rolf Hilger, aka RoHi, and he was an eye doctor. The doctor knew what was best for your eyes, and it included Dogwaffle :-)
One of our favorite moments was the release of the Motion Prediction module. Oh and then of course, the 3D Designer went ballistic, Pure Ballistic to be precide, in version 9.5, with tools for erosion and sediments. And of course, Puppy Ray on GPU became stellar in the recent v11 release and subsequent summer update.
It's time to celebrate. If you don't have the latest version of DOgwaffle yet, why not upgrade or get it now?
