Boring update, but it had to be done. I've mainly been working on bugs and fixing problems with the strand physics. I've got the flickering and a couple of other bugs sorted, and it's a lot more solid generally.
I've also been testing out swf hair imports, to let people make hair just like the base styles. It's a bit more complicated, and preparing dynamic hair still takes some work, but from the image templates out there it seems like there are plenty of people who know what they're doing, so it should be fine. I need to tidy things up first, but I'll try to release a beta of this soon.
I'm planning to fix the rest of the known bugs and add a few extra custom options like blush alpha in time for another release next weekend.
