    Smooth value is now a slider and shows results in realtime for easier use.
    The align object option is now copied when a layer is copied.
    Added new option to the Uniform scaling option, you can now choose how the uniform scaling is applied and to which axis so XYZ, XY, XZ, YZ with the other axis having its own scale.
    Fixed offsets in Scatter Object Along not being applied correctly along the length of the spline.

    Updated the MegaShapes version to the latest, which will stop any errors if used alongside the full version of MegaShapes
    Added KML import option to MegaShapes.
    Option added to recalc static batching after a scatter, which means in projects that use the scatter at runtime option batching will now work better and reduce draw calls even further.
