    Hi Everybody,

    Version 1.0.6 of UIFX - Blur Filter has been released!

    New features include:

    24 February 2024 - Version 1.0.6

    Breaking Changes
    • The scale of the blur radius has changed so all blur radius values will need to be adjusted to pixels. This is because we have improved the resolution-independent calculation and made the blur radius scale more intuitive. The radius is now in pixels relative to 1080p resolution.
    Changes
    • Major refactoring to clean up the code
    Let us know if there are any features or improvements you would like to see ;)

    We look forward to hearing your feedback, reviews and ratings! :)

    Hi Everybody,

    Version 1.6.6 of UIFX - Blur Filter has been released!

    New features include:

    30 April 2024 - Version 1.6.6

    Improved
    • UIFX - Gooey Filter improved rendering for images

    Fixed
