FigTree v1.3 is now available for download from the website:
http://tree.bio.ed.ac.uk/software/figtree/

What is new?
Added a 'Background' colouring option to the 'Appearance' panel so the colour under each clade can be controlled by an attribute.

Added a 'Color by' option to tip, node and branch labels so the colour of the labels can be controlled by an attribute.

Restored a Export to PDF option in the File menu. This uses a different library for creating PDFs from the Graphics export and doesn't require any settings (it should produce a PDF that matches the screen image).

Implemented a 'QuickLook' plugin for Mac OS X. This allows you to view a tree simply by pressing the space bar in Finder (will also automatically produce thumbnails). See readme in folder for installation instructions.

Bug Fixes:
Fixed an issue with 'branch' attributes not being loaded from a NEXUS file.

The tree panel now has focus when the window opens which allows direct copy/pasting of tree files.

New attributes are available in the Find panel.

Annotation types being defined in the dialog box were not being created.

Dear FigTree users,

Unfortunately there were a couple of issues with the version 1.3 I released yesterday. Specifically, I managed to break the ability to collapse nodes. This was a result of the new background colouring feature I introduced (and didn't test properly, obviously). Because I am a bit busy at the moment, I have taken the lazy option of just replacing the packages on the website with new, (hopefully) fixed ones rather than making a whole new version. If the 284 people who downloaded it before 10:00 GMT on 17th Dec, could download it again, this issue should be resolved.

I also fixed a problem with the Mac package that meant that the QuickLook plugin was corrupt and FigTree wouldn't run on older Mac OS X versions.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
Andrew
