QLC+ 4.8.5 release

Post by mcallegari » Sun Apr 12, 2015 3:26 pm

And here's another load of fixes and improvements called 4.8.5.

Once again, David did an amazing job in search and destroying bugs. So kudos to him !
We gained the support for the Eurolite USB DMX512 Pro adapter thanks to Karri Kaksonen.
I also took the chance to implement the possibility to flash LTP channels.
Thanks also to everyone who shared new fixture definitions ! This release brings 50 new ones, demolishing the 500 fixtures goal that wasn't even set ! :)
To OSX users: I finally have a real Mac (yes ! A Mac Mini in all its aluminum glory :D ) so this
is the first release made with it. I bundled Qt 5.4.1 (which finally fixes ugly toolbars) and OLA 0.9.5.
If there's anything wrong with the DMG, please let me know.

  • Engine: it is now possible to flash LTP channels as well

Hi Santiago.
Downloaded from qlcplus.org or from Sourceforge ?
Can you please report the size of the files in bytes ?
Thanks

Downloading with wget or from Sourceforge works. Donwloading from qlcplus.org Firefox seems that the downloaded has 7.8 MB size but an ls informs that something don't work.

I'm downloading now with wget. I downloaded the files from qlcplus.org. I just deleted the files downloaded early.
Just installed amd64 deb downloaded with wget and installs fine. Downloading with wget the connection/download restarted three times.

Too bad :cry:
I just tried to download the amd64 deb with Chrome and I got it right. Might be a case...
I'll report your case to the hosting provider too.
I really hope they're gonna fix these server connection drops otherwise I've done this whole thing for nothing :(

Not for nothing. It was a very big step to "liberate" Forum and Website from SF :!: . Migrating Forum and Website to another Provider which offer stabler hosting for PHP, MySQL and so on should be easier.

What is about the way to offer the downloads via GitHUB, i think another great open source project like openHAB http://www.openhab.org/downloads.html does :?:

I guess it would be easier cause migrating from phpBB to another phpBB is a piece of cake....BUT...my knees tremble at the sole thought of moving 450MB elsewhere...again.
This is not a random free hosting. I paid for a premium service and it's supposed to behave like premium ! Period.

As for GH and openHAB I don't like the idea to have files all around. The idea is to have everything in one place. The side effect is that if one server is down, everything is unreachable. :roll:
