It has been more than 2 months since Dopamine 1.3 was released. After the release and after a well deserved vacation, work on Dopamine 1.4 start started. It is now time to show where Dopamine 1.4 is headed. Nothing better than a Preview build for this! 🙂
So I present to you Dopamine 1.4 build 952 (Preview), the very first Dopamine 1.4 Preview.
