thanks for quick comment.
The most important thing to me, until now, was to eliminate bugs.

Finally I'm happy to see we are close to the new release and we are 
talking about refining.

About layer up&down movement I'll wait for more comments in the list 
before acting.

About the movable base is so simple to change it. I can add the code 
commented to let users choose.

Ungrouped layers is an issues that I think we will face after the new 
release but is Paul that will decide on this.
