- The cube is back.
- Improved transitions from some shapes to others.
- The sphere has more photos than before; more like the other shapes.

- New spiral shape!
- User can choose what shapes are used, in a new Shapes tab in the options page.
- Now possible to move many photos at once. As before, the max number of photos that can move at one time is controlled with the Few At Once ... Many slider in the options. This max at once value will change for 1.1 users when they upgrade, but they can approximate the old behavior by setting it to the 2nd notch.

- The cube shape is gone (if enough people miss it, I might be persuaded to bring it back; let me know).
