Better crossplatfrom compatibility
This version have a special focus on crossplatform compatibility by delivering following fixes and improvements:

Synfig Studio now runs natively on OSX. That means the installation of X11/XQuartz is not required anymore.
Fixed issue, which was preventing file saving for some users of Windows version (bug #572).
Fixed FFMPEG video export for Ubuntu (bug #118).
Demonstration of aligned timeline
Aligned timeline
A fix that deserves a special mention. For a long time the rows in Params Panel and TimeTrack Panel were suffered from misalignment, which result in a lot of distraction for our users. With this version the issue is fixed.

Lossless encoding profile

Improvements for video encoding
Synfig Studio now have an option for lossless video encoding. The special FFMPEG encoding profile utilizes features of H.264 codec and provides a good compression without quality loss.

This version also introduces a new "Extract Alpha" option, which allows to keep transparency when exporting to video file. This is useful for mixing 2D animation with 3D compositions.

Check out the video below for details on both features.
The "Extract Alpha" rendering mode is also available as CLI option - just supply "--extract-alpha" or "-x" arguments.

All features / Full description:
Spatial resolution-independence
Most elements are vector-based, and all layers are parametrically generated, hence even when changing the target resolution of a project, the only pixelation will occur in imported raster images, not the built-in components.
Temporal resolution independence
Animation-keyframes are automatically interpolated by the computer, resulting in smooth motion
High Dynamic-Range Imaging (HDRI)
By using floating-point math in the image calculations, HDRI processing allows canvases to internally understand a far greater range of pixel luminance, resulting in better lighting effects, and improved color composition.
Pentablet-friendly tools
The draw tool already reads the pressure sensitivity channel off your favorite tablets, for natural line weighting, and more to come!
Artist-oriented design
While it may not be obvious in this early state, Synfig (and its proprietary predecessors) has been designed from the ground up with animation workflow in mind.
Path-based Gradients
Unlike purely SVG-based vector software, and most consumer-level animation programs, Synfig has full support for gradient paths - gradients that follow along a drawn shape. This allows artists to easily add soft shading to animation without the trouble of painting it onto every frame.
Layers
Synfig supports a multitude of layers of various types; geometric, gradients, filters, distortions, transformations, fractal and a few others.
