Santa comes early with an Image To ZX Spec 2.0.0 release!

This will be the last major revision of Image To ZX Spec as I'm moving on to other projects. The two major features of this release are high speed native video decoding (requiring separate platform builds) and some critical bug fixes for MacOS, the full changelog is below.

This is great! I've loved this app since 2009. However, the bug for saving files on the Mac still exists - I wasn't able to save but usually make a screenshot if the image is small enough.

Can you let me know bit more about your Mac setup? I had it tested independently on Sierra and El Capitan and couldn't replicate the issue.

Thank you for this. I've been away from my Speccy hobby for a while but started catching up recently. Ever since I saw the digitiser interfaces on Speccy mags in the late 80s, I became fascinated with digitised graphics on the Spectrum. Thank you.
