QLC+ 4.8.3 release

Post by Massimo Callegari » Sun Dec 21, 2014 1:55 am

All I can say is: WOW ! QLC+ 4.8.3 ended up being another massive release of this project.

As you can see from the changelog, another big set of fixes and improvements have been addressed to increase the stability and the functionalities of QLC+.
In random order:

* The animation widget can now count also on individual RGB knobs. For this and many other improvements we need to thank David Garyga that has now became part of the QLC+ development team !
* The Script function, this obscure part of QLC+, is now documented and has been improved. You can already achieve nice results with the random() macro and by calling external programs/scripts
* Major rework of video playback and added the possibility to stream a video from the network. Unless major drawbacks come out, videos should be now usable for production purposes
* Reworked audio triggers to allow multiple instances at the same time and with a different number of spectrum bars. Also, if placed in solo frames, they acquire the typical exclusive behaviour
* A massive 31 new fixtures ! Thanks in particular to Thierry Rodolfo. Half of the new fixtures are his

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
