QLC+ 4.5.1 release

Post by Massimo Callegari » Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:13 am

On November the 5th, 2012, I forked the QLC source tree. In other words that's the day I started to develop QLC+. A lot happened since then ! Lot of new functionalities, fixtures, bugs and fixes, ideas, discussions and results.
To name a few: ArtNet and OSC plugins, Show manager, audio input/output, Click & Go and 800 gobos, Cue lists crossfade, Live editing, DMX dump, multi page frames, fixture remapping, web interface, channel groups and many more I might be forgetting right now.
I am pretty satisfied of this first year and my hope is to continue this way to give users a choice against very expensive software that are not always synonym of quality.

Just for fun, I collected a few numbers to help you understand what there has been behind QLC+ in just one year.

* 32610 lines of code added
* 108 new fixtures added
* 1646 posts on the QLC+ forum
* 19 releases, 839 commits, 178 tickets/pull requests addressed
* 3 video tutorials
* More than 17000 visits to the QLC+ website...and counting

So, what can I say ? A big **thank you** to all the people that helped to make this real !
As a birthday present I am also starting to give out (hey, shouldn't it be the other way round ?) the all-in-one QLC+ PDF manual (111 pages).
Basically it's what you find in the internal documentation, but packed in a single (better looking) PDF document. Hope you enjoy it !
