QLC+ 4.9.0 release

Post by mcallegari » Sat Jun 27, 2015 1:27 pm

Here it is: version 4.9.0, the 30th release of the QLC+ project in just 2.5 years !
At first it wanted to be another bugfix release, and as you can see from the massive changelog, David continued his excellent activity of fixing and improving some misbehaviour of the UI and weaknesses of the engine.

Then there's been the chance to add some new features and the version became a new minor.

Here's a few notes to be considered for using this version:
  • QLC+ now saves plugins configuration into the project file, to give you more portability across platforms. This means that once you configure a plugin and save your project, QLC+ will read that configuration and not the global settings.
  • if you use OSC, ArtNet and E1.31, you might need to review your project IO setup
  • OSX user can now enjoy the support for HID joysticks/gamepads too !
  • Windows DMX USB freezes should be solved now. Please test again Stageprofi and the devices that gave issues in the past
  • The Windows build system has changed and the package now bundles Qt 5.4.2. You need to uninstall any previous version before installing 4.9.0
Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release, especially for 47 new fixtures !
