MapTool 1.4

MapTool 1.4 was released five days ago but I only found out yesterday. Besides a lot of infrastructure changes that will probably impact future versions, they have added isometric maps. Now it is possible to play in "fake 3D" views which I think will be mostly useful for dungeon crawls.

Moving a flat token in the new isometric view. There is also support to tokens that could look like miniatures standing on the map, but I have not created any yet.

As explained in the forum thread about the new feature, to use the isometric view you should configure the map to use the isometric grid, then use the Flip: Isometric Plane option on the flat objects and tokens that you add to the map. Tokens representing miniatures can be set to the new Figure shape.
