QLC+ TEST versions

Post by Massimo Callegari » Thu Dec 11, 2014 8:59 pm

Hello everyone,
I decided to create this sticky topic to gather all the TEST versions in one place, instead of creating one thread every time.

Please note that TEST versions are development versions, so they are not meant to be used in a production environment !
From time to time they fix specific issues raised in the QLC+ forums, so they can help users when a problem is found.
Let's consider them as an anticipation to the next stable release, but until then do not consider these builds as final, as developers might decide to change things at the very last minute.

The changes that have been done from the last stable version are listed in the GitHub changelog

Windows: Automated builds (updated: 2017-05-28)

OSX 10.7+: QLC+_4.11.0-TEST-20170429.dmg
Unofficial Chris de Rock build using D2XX DMX USB library

Linux: Thanks to the help of Veljko Stankov, now we have automated builds of QLC+. We're targeting Arch, Fedora, OpenSUSE and Ubuntu.
Qt4 GIT packages
Qt5 GIT packages

If you are going to comment on these versions, the first thing you must say is exactly which version you tested. Thanks.

Enjoy !

Hello everyone,

Just for the record, I have Sierra 10.12.1 and an ultraDMX Micro USB. I tried all the test versions on this post and although the ultraDMX was recognized no communication was taking place. I had to run the following command to get it to work

sudo kextunload -b com.apple.driver.AppleUSBFTDI

It seems this command needs to be executed every time the MAC restarts. Is anyone aware of a more permanent solution?

Regards,
Ramiro G.

Maybe the Enttec FTDI Driver Cleaner works for you: http://www.enttec.com/dmx_usb/FTClean.zip

Hi,

I saw the note on the homepage recommending we occasionally test the test version of qlc+. Is there a link or place where I can regularly find out what the changes and updates are so I can perhaps test certain features or aspects of the software? Knowing this is a test version is great, but it'd be also great to know what changed/to look for in the test version.

Thanks,
Drew

Drew,

one source is changelog: https://github.com/mcallegari/qlcplus/b ... /changelog
It is manually updated, so it may not contain all the changes.

Second source is commit list: https://github.com/mcallegari/qlcplus/commits/master
It contains all changes to source code, although the description may not be descriptive enough :(
You also need to find out what was the last change that went to a particular test build.
Either you will see commit id (sha sum) as a part of the name (or in appveyor history)
or you'd need to check the date of build.

Crashes for me on launch under OS X 10.12.2 :( FWIW, I believe that 4.10.5(all versions) exhibited the same behavior. 4.10.4 works.

The crash is during initialization of OLA plugin. I suppose ola plugin version does not match the actual ola version. Either remove ola plugin or upgrade ola. Or something. :)
