    The very famed Pixelmator image-editing application for the iPad received a major update on Tuesday that brought the application up to version 1.0.2 in the iOS App Store.

    Pixelmator has received a very long list of bug fixes, tool improvements, performance enhancements, new features, and so much more. Below is an excerpt of all of the changes in version 1.0.2 from the iOS App Store:
