Version 6.5:

The Clone tool now has an opacity option.
Crop improvements: You can now set the DPI of an image while cropping, and alignment guides now appear when rotating your image in a crop.
The Perspective Transform command has a new option in the palette to show/hide the grid. It also gets a new palette that shows up when invoked.
Feathering selections: The Select ▸ Feather… the menu item has been removed and you can now control the feather on a selection right in the selection palette.
End caps for bezier paths: You can now change between round, square, and butt end cap styles for Bezier paths. These new options are right under the join style in the path options section of the shape palette. Also, it’s now easier to see the selected state of the line join and cap styles.
You can now use the anchor select tool to drag and select multiple anchors.
New Image Panel improvements: We’ve increased the accuracy when changing from one unit to another (ie- inches to centimeters) as well as added an option to view the resolution field as pixels per inch or pixels per centimeter.
The PDF import window now shows the pixel dimensions of what your new image will be (and updates accordingly when you change the DPI)
We’ve added a new advanced preference which tells Acorn to load 3rd party Image Units.
