Zen Light Banner
There's plenty new in this latest version!

New Library TabInstantly preview creations from around the globe, and add them to your own Favorites. Click the column headers to sort by name, date, or uploader. Non-registered users (that is, those that haven't registered yet) can still view and add anything in the library to Favorites. For settings you've shared, you can edit your description, or even stop sharing at any time.

Share TabOnce registered, you can share anything you create with the world. Add some keywords, take your screenshot, and submit your design. It will instantly be added to the Zen Light World Library and viewable by everyone through the Library tab, or in the World Library section of the Zen Light web site. You can then enter a description if you like and click 'Update Library'.

Zen Light WindowDownload this small app that runs Zen Light in a window on the desktop. Download any .zen file from the Library and drop it into the window to play it.

New Slideshow SettingsSee something new every time Zen Light starts by selecting the 'Newest', 'Popular', or 'Random' World Library submissions.

High Accuracy PreviewNow see exactly how everything will look when full screen. Some patterns look different at lower resolutions, including in the preview window. With this setting, Zen Light is run at full screen resolution, then sized down to the preview window. Find this under the Options tab.

New Shimmering DotsLook in Display for the new Shimmering section, to add some glimmer, glitter, or shiny effects. For more vivid results, reduce the color brightness down to more 'Subtle Colors' in the Color tab.

Allow Pattern DriftMany settings will adjust slightly (or not-so-slightly) for more variety as you watch.

SnapshotsMulti-monitor snapshots now work in both GDI and OpenGL modes.

OpenGL settingBy default, If running at 100% resolution, GDI is used, otherwise OpenGL is used for lower resolutions

White BackgroundsUnder the Color tab, check 'White Background (Invert)' to do just that, invert the image so drawings are mostly on a white background instead of black.

New Wrap and Mobius modesUnder the Pattern tab, improved screen wrapping can be performed by checking 'Wrap', giving a truer toroidal world. Check 'Mobius' to flip left/right or up/down the dots as they wrap around the screen.

Speed Enhancements and Bug FixesThere were several.
