5 May 2016 Version 10 SP1 Beta 3
ThumbsPlus 10 SP1 Beta 3 (build 4009) is now available! It includes various bug fixes and improvements. You can read about it and download it from the release notes here.
15 March 2016 Build 4005 is an official build!

ThumbsPlus IconThumbsPlus build 4005 was the first beta for version 10 SP1. Most importantly, it fixed several user interface problems that could occur when you floated panes in 4004. (Floating is dragging a pane outside of the main window.)

Therefore, we consider build 4005 an official build, and we recommend it highly for all users! See the release notes for more information and to download.

If you float a pane accidentally in build 4004 and ThumbsPlus acts strangely, you can use the menu option Window -> Layout -> Default Layout to consolidate all panes into the main window and work around the problem.
