QLC+ 4.10.4 release

Post by mcallegari » Sun May 29, 2016 4:06 pm

QLC+ 4.10.4 is a bugfix release that aims to resolve a few issues and regressions reported by users during the last months.

As usual though, this version brings also important news regarding specific areas:
  • I have introduced a real pause state of QLC+ Functions. This state can be accessed from Virtual Console Cue Lists and from the Show Manager.
    A Cue List now has 2 separate buttons for playback: Play/Pause and Stop.
    When pausing, lights will stay on, and "frozen" exactly where they were, even during a fade in transition. This breaks backward compatibility with external control mapping, cause now you have to map 2 different controls, so you are strongly invited to review your project if you intend to use this version.
    On the other hand I hope the benefit is clear: this distinction gives maximum flexibility of control of a Cue List/Chaser playback, especially for theatre usage cases.
  • With the LED color feedback in mind, I finally implemented global custom feedbacks that can be defined just once in an input profile. They can always be overridden from every VC widget, like before.
  • Again, for flexibility, I decided to split MIDI beat clock start and stop events, so if you're using such feature, please double check your project.
Now a few deployment updates:
  • Every Linux build now includes the OLA plugin, but OLA is not a hard dependency of the package. The plugin will be listed in the IO manager only if OLA is actually installed in the system.
  • Windows builds now include Qt 5.6.0 built by me, without ICU libraries. The final package size has been reduced by 700Kb.
  • Mac OSX bundles include Qt 5.6.0 as well, the vanilla version
  • The Raspberry Pi image has been ported to Debian Jessie ! This is a huge step forward and the boot time is lighting fast: 12 seconds on a Raspberry Pi 3 !
    Notification emails will be sent later today.

  • Scripts: Fix 4.10.3a regression that breaks values parsing (David Garyga)

I double checked and the Windows package seems to be including the correct DLLs.
If no one else is having your same issue, then most likely you downloaded a corrupted package. You might try to re-download it.

[EDIT] Otherwise, please add the DLL in the attached zip file and let me know if it solves the issue for you

I've downloaded and started QLC+ 4.10.4 and it works fine (both upgrade from 4.10.3a and clean install; W7 64). Note that the machine is dev machine, with QT dev environment etc.

Did you do clean install or upgrade?

The first screenshot looks like access violation. Second looks like Platfoms/qwindows.dll is missing for some reason.


Luca, do you have "platforms" dir in your QLC+ installation with qwindows.dll?

I tried with the dll without any results .
I have Qt 5.5.1 on my laptop and home pc. Now I try to remove QT on my Home Pc.
I switched from version 4.10.3a. I remove the old version and install the new.
Now whitout Qt on my pc I have the same result.

Anyone else having issues with the Windows package ?

@Luca: have you ever attempted to build QLC+ on Windows ? You might have an old version of MSYS2 which is causing conflicts with the up-to-date QLC+ DLLs
