BrailleBlaster 1.0.11-beta Released

We are pleased to announce BrailleBlaster 1.0.11-beta. The work on math support is very exciting. It is still a work in progress but we know how important this is for producing braille textbooks. There have also been a number of corrections and a few enhancements to the UI. Another important development is that we believe that the problems with BrailleBlaster lagging or hanging when numerous paste operations are performed is now corrected.
