On their way to a 1.0 released, Tiled, an open source map editor, just released version 0.18.0.   In addition to several fixes and updated translations, there are a few convenience features that are sure to make people happy.  You can now create a new layer via cut and paste as well as performingtiled paste in place actions.  There is also a new menu enabling you to change between compatible custom property types ( for example converting a string to an int or vice versa ).  They also updated the UI to make dealing with custom Z ordering easier.  If you are interested in learning Tiled, we have a complete tutorial series available here.  Full details of this release are available in the change log below.
