QLC+ 4.6.0 release

Post by Massimo Callegari » Thu Dec 19, 2013 8:22 pm

Yet another new version of QLC+ for your lighting Christmas holidays.
This time we focused on consolidating and improving what was introduced in the 4.5 series, but of course we didn't miss the chance to introduce some new major features, as well as some goodies.
I would like to highlight:

* Brand new E1.31 (sACN) input/output plugin
* Folders in the Function Manager
* Virtual Console submaster sliders
* Rewritten Function Wizard (to the professionals: don't be shy...you can use it too to speed up a project design :) )

A lot of work has been done also under the hood, keeping in mind that one of QLC+ goals is to run smoothly on a Raspberry Pi.
For this reason, the web access functionality can now be considered out of the experimental stage. (even though still perfectible)

I would like to thank (in random order):

* Jano Svitok for actively developing, reviewing, forum-ing in this project
* Michael Clements for reviewing the whole documentation
* OLA's father Simon Newton for submitting some patches that will allow QLC+ to run on the incoming 0.9 series.
* George Qualley for beta testing the folders feature
* The translations guys that promptly contributed with their precious changes

Stay tuned for more new exciting features that will keep on adding value to this continuosly evolving project !
