New build for SAI 2.0 (as of 12/31/2014)

From reading Bing translate, there's news about the new stuff since the '13 build, including vector shapes and other stuff. Someone with actual Japanese skills could translate lol.

Thanks for the heads-up!
Even with only Google Translate, there are some very nice features under development, especially on the vector side..
Custom tool tray, smoother vector pen, Bezier handles, and my personal favourite, vector erase to intersection.

See these examples of vector erase to intersection in Manga Studio / Clip Studio Paint for why that's exciting :

Edit: After a few minutes playing, I also see perspective snapping layers for raster and vector.

Thanks to bluedingo's posting about Yiynova multi-screen issues, I went back and saw that Sai 2 supports the TabletPC API (or Microsoft Ink API, as it also works with non-tablet computers) for pen pressure and location - this may mean less tablet compatibility problems in the future.

I happen to have the Yiynova MVP22UHD v3 and can confirm both 2.0 builds work with the drivers installed. I'm tempted to try and see if it will work with Tablet PC API without drivers, as the MSP19U worked right out the box with my Surface Pro last time I tried it.

The 1.xs though are rather iffy, and prefer Clip Studio, which works flawlessly with everything.

Edit: strangely enough though, it looks like SAI2.x and Clip Studio cannot coexist with each other (though that might be just my particular computer). Pressure and detection just stops working if they're both running/

Is there currently a way for it to detect 1.x's brushes? I loaded the new beta into my 1.x folder and I my old brushes didnt load.

It doesn't seem to recognise 1.x configuration files, but you may be able to rebuild some brushes from within the interface.  I added a few blotmaps and brushtex BMPs, and they seem to work fine. Elemaps go in the bristle folder, but I'm getting errors on about half of them, not seeing a pattern why some work and others don't.

Wow looks like they're taking the English audience much more seriously. Super excited.

Since it is still in Beta some features and brushes are missing but what's there is exciting.  Such as the text, vector shapes and perspective rulers.  Can't wait to see the final version.

wow a new build on Jan 19th and another on the 20th. Looks like he is speeding up the dev lately.

I'm excited about SAI 2, i want to buy it... but a 1.x license will not work with SAI 2.x final right? I am wondering if I should just wait...

This Version promise, to be a very cool Programm - what I saw:
Strokes - very cool, very nice - and very fast -  vector-strokes can do very big!
vector-Tools are much better as in Sai 1.
The ereaser for vectors now is so cool like in Manga Studio
The rulers and perspective-Tools are very nice ...
I have some wishes do not know, if there are a place to publish - so, here for discussion – hope, the developer read ;-)

I wish :
a mesh transform-tool
a puppet-tool
better select-tools
fill gap-options
improving the line thickness tool - correct the line thicknes with a brush (not only separate points)
...
Impatient waiting for the final release.

Greetings

Can any of the Sai2 versions open old Sai files or PSD?
