New features

  • "Amstrad CPC rasters" drawing mode, similar to mode 5 but with more flexible constraints
  • New backends supported: X11, SDL2, Win32 GDI. It is now possible to add more backends to build GrafX2 where SDL is not available.


  • Support for pasting on MacOS (so you can write text elsewhere and then copy it in GrafX2)
  • Better handling of aspect ratio in GIF and PNG files (use the closest match possible)

  • Use the teXt chunk from PNG for the coment field, if there is no Title chunk.

  • Improved loading and saving support for C64 fileformats


  • CI system rework, automatically generated installers.
  • Use the correct cursor for operations again
  • Missing screen updates when using ZX constraint drawing mode
  • Fix crash when restoring backups

  • PI1 files with colorcylcing were corrupt on saving
  • Fix crash when saving to .SCR format in some cases
  • It is possible to build for Atari systems again
  • It is now possible to build GrafX2 with Microsoft Visual C++
  • It is now possible to build for NetBSD and OpenBSD
  • Filename is not lost when changing extension in the save dialog
  • When alt-tabbing out of GrafX2, it would think that the ALT key is stuck pressed
  • When cancelling a lasso brush grab, the previous brushwas sometimes not properly restored
  • Do not crash if a lua script tries to open a window larger than 320x200. Now the window is hard-limited to 320x200
