Hey everyone !
First of all this is not QLC+ 5...before you ask.
It's a new minor version of the QLC+ 4 family, with a plethora of fixes and changes.

We need everyone with a bit of time and wiling to contribute to this project to do some early testing before this version is declared as final.
Being a .0 version, there are areas that got mostly rewritten. In particular you are invited to test all the plugins you can.
OSC, ArtNet, E1.31 have changed a lot (see the documentation)
DMX USB got improved on Windows and HID acquired the joystick support on OSX.

If you encounter issues, please make sure they weren't there in previous versions. In case, open a new thread in this forum.
If you find issues specific of this version, you are invited and welcome to report them.
Please always indicate which operating system and which hardware (DMX adapter, audio card, etc..) you are using
Eventually attach a workspace that allow us to reproduce the issue you found.

This is the changelog so far. We still need to review the fixtures submitted in the last few months:
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mcall ... /changelog

And here the TEST versions. Both are bundled with Qt 5.4.2, so the latest version.

Please note that TEST versions are development versions, so they are not meant to be used in a production environment !
Windows: QLC+_4.9.0-TEST-20150615.exe

OSX: QLC+_4.9.0-TEST-20150615.dmg

Linux: come on guys ! I know you can build QLC+ yourself ;)

Thanks everybody !

So, more than 70 visits to this post and no feedbacks at all :(

Do we really have a bugfree 4.9.0 version ? I doubt that.

In case you can also test it and report "I tested this, this and this and everything works well".
It would help as well.

Sorry Massimo,

at summertime i prefer to spend my time outside my party room and prefer to enjoy the sun (if it's available here in germany).
But i'm very happy to watch the progress of QLC+ and im looking forward to spend a lot of time with the next version in spring ;)

It's a good point to see in the release notes that you now have a connection to the german DMXControl Projects e.V. with their Nodle U1!

Regards
Heiko

OK Compiled on Linux using qt5.4.1. All compiled OK (after a make distclean).

Did some basic editing of a workspace and ran our show of last year and out generic set-up. Also ran with custom HID and midi controllers.

All basic stuff, I do not have anything complicated at the moment.

But all the stuff I touched worked as expected.

Gearing up for a show so sticking with stable version for the moment. I did download and install 4.9.0 in a test area on Windows. So far only thing I noticed is that the install package is missing the libgcc dll. Copied it from a previous version.

Ran 4.9.0 on both my mobile system and in my club (OS X 10.10.4 on the mobile system, OS X 10.10.3 in the club) this weekend and didn't come across any issues. The club system is pretty locked in, so I didn't expect to see much there, but I did do a fair amount of work on the mobile system (Live Editing of layouts and functions) and everything worked as expected! So far, so good on my end.
