SnapCode Update March 28

This week added some less visible but useful improvements:

– Support for cut, copy, paste, delete of pieces
– Support for double-click to add piece
– Refactoring to support more Java statement types
– Added piece foreground shape for better rendering of selected and DragOver states
– Changed rendering of pieces to use Lighting effect

The new piece lighting effect replaces the old style and makes the pieces look smoother. The old style was just 4 copies of the background at different offsets and shades – what NeXT Computer used to call 2.5D rendering. Below is an image of the new rendering.
