v1.0.0 (4th Jan, 21)

• Initial release.

v1.1.0 (6th Jan, 21)

• Improved error management.

• The images are now saved in the same folder as the .blend file, in a newly created subfolder. If the blend file is not saved, it uses the directory set in preferences or the default temp directory, which might raise permission error. This feature is toggleable via addon preferences.

• Improved the UI in preferences.

v1.2.0 (6th Feb, 21)

• Paste image from clipboard directly as a plane onto the viewport (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+V).

• Supports image(s) copied from file explorer in Windows.

• Multiple images can now be pasted at the same time if multiple images are copied from the file explorer (only for Windows).

• Fixed an issue where images were saved with the same name in the default directory even with different blender sessions and led to different images being loaded from what was pasted

• Added icons for the buttons

Update (20th Feb, 21)
• Added a new build for the latest builds of Blender v2.93 as the old one doesn't work on it anymore.

• (16th Apr, 21): Merged build for 2.93a into the primary build. Don't worry about it.

v1.3.0 (12th Mar, 21)

• Image(s) can be pasted directly into the Node Editor as Image Texture Node(s), using [Node Editor > Context Menu (Right Click) > Paste Images From Clipboard] or (Ctrl+Shift+V)

• Images can now be copied to clipboard. In the [Image Editor > Image > Copy To Clipboard], or (Ctrl+Shift+C). These images are also saved along with other images in the set directory.

v1.3.1 (14th Mar, 21)

• Fixed issue with the copy to clipboard feature where it didn't work as intended for certain cases.

v1.3.2 (16th Apr, 21)
