[HEADS UP] Help needed to test incoming version 4.10.0 - Round 2

Post by mcallegari » Sat Oct 10, 2015 12:32 am

Hey guys. First of all thanks a lot to everyone who participated to the first round of tests for the 4.10.0 version. It has been very helpful.

This version is massive and the more tests and feebacks we can get, the more quality the release will have.
I'm sorry if we couldn't investigate on everything that has been reported, but the feedbacks has been so many, the time so little and it was difficult to follow every single topic.
If this second round doesn't show major issues, the attempt is to release on the 18th or the 25th of October. At this point no new major features will go in. Only bugfixes.

Again, please test everything you can. Please report the results of your tests, even if everything is working for you.
Just state which platform/distro you're on and what you have tested.
This is the changelog that we have so far. A deeper description of the new features will be written once we release the final packages.

Linux: Thanks to the help of Veljko Stankov, now we have automated builds of QLC+. We're targeting Arch, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu.
Please help to check if those packages work on your distribution.
Here the direct links to download Qt4 GIT packages and Qt5 GIT packages

Windows: QLC+_4.10.0-TEST-20151013.exe

OSX: QLC+_4.10.0-TEST-20151012.dmg
This is a very important release on OSX. Please read the first round post to understand why.

And, hey guys, I've implemented custom feedbacks for the AKAI APC controllers ! Check out the MIDI plugin docs. Hope you'll enjoy it.
Also the APC Mini should work out of the box now.
The XY Pad and Speed Dial now have new features. Read the updated documentation and check them out !

Thanks in advance for all the feedbacks you can provide.

Ok I think I've found a bug:
Create a cue list of 10 light scene for example, then start the cue and try crossfade from One memory to another (i.e from memory 3 to 7) then press next cue and the cue list jumps again to memory 3 without considering the crossfade and the 7 position

@Massimo: I've linked my file so you can see the behaviour above

Cue List crossfade doesn't work like that. It works on contiguous steps.
An by the way this is not specific to this version, so you should have open a new thread.

New file> VC > add new speed dial.
When double click on speed dial (to edit) QLC exits.

By the way, now i can't test Enttec Pro mk2 with connected dmx fixtures. But looks like it works with Captain. Pro mk2 indicators go green teling me that it recives DMX signal from QLC+ :)

Uhm...this is weird and requires more details.
Does it happen on an empty workspace ?
What IO is selected when the crash occurs ? Does it happens with no IO at all ?

I have tested on OSX Yosemite 10.10.5

For me not crash, but before the opening of the editing form opens another form for an instant.

I can't see that form because it is immediately hidden from the editing form.

This could be part of the problem?

Ovis,
Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling qlcplus?. Something similar happenned to me with qlcplus on Ubunutu 15.04 opening widget properties. After remove and install qlcplus works properly again.

Hello Massimo,
I did some tests with OSC on the last 3 versions, with Windows 7 Pro and this is what happens :

- with QLC 4.8.3: everything works

- With QLC 4.9.1:
After giving a name to the template, and indicated the type of communication (OSC) capturing the faders with the magic wand can be done only if you close QLC+ et open QLC+.
After the configuration of the virtual consol, the faders (of the virtual consol) can control the android, but android can't control the faders of the virtual console. It is necessary to save the file, then to close QLC+ , then to open QLC+ and load the file. Then it works.

- with QLC+_4.10.0-TEST-20151010 : Even problems as with 4.9.1 and even with the same method it dysfonctionne all the same later.

Best regards.
Christian

I believe this is due to a buggy version of the Qt libraries. Apparently the UDP sockets don't behave properly.
This is the relevant thread where it has been discovered: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8834
At the moment the Windows version bundles Qt 5.4.2 and the OSX bundles Qt 5.5.1 (but still a buggy version)
Next week Qt 5.5.1 with the bug fixed should be released, so the final QLC+ packages should work properly.
Please have patience.
