QLC+ 4.11.0 release

Post by mcallegari » Sat Jun 24, 2017 1:55 pm

QLC+ 4.11.0 is here. After 6 months of reworks, improvements and bugfixing, here it is, the 40th release of the QLC+ project.

This is probably the version that received the highest number of community contributions, so really big thanks to all those users wearing their developer hat who helped improving QLC+ !

The efforts are always towards stability and efficiency, however we don't miss a chance to include new features and helpers.

In sparse order, here's what to expect from 4.11.0:
  • a major change on Sequences (as anticipated here). They always caused a lot of confusion among users, and with this version, I hope it'll become clearer how they work and how to use them. Basically now they look like every other QLC+ function and Scenes bound to Sequences are hidden to avoid their improper use. Since the rework has been quite invasive, existing projects using Sequences should be migrated using the online (or offline) migration tool available here.
  • Virtual Console Sliders with level monitoring enabled can now act like Simple Desk sliders, thus overriding the DMX channel levels
  • improved linked crossfade on Cue Lists. Now it behaves like you probably expected for a long time
  • Virtual Console Frame pages can now have direct shortcuts and custom names
  • almost 100 new fixtures ! This is an amazing example of an active community, so thanks to everyone who submitted their fixtures
  • fixed crashes in a few areas
Deployment:
  • Windows, macOS and the Raspberry Pi image are now bundling Qt 5.9.0 LTS (the one we'll probably use with QLC+ 5)
  • Linux official package is still built against Qt4 (:cry:) and from this version there will be only a 64bit package. I have abandoned 32bit cause it's going to disappear from distros anyway and because it costs me more effort to maintain. If you really need 32bit builds, please use the ones provided by OBS (links in the download page)
@Raspberry users: the email you received was meant to have a subject like "QLC+ Raspberry Pi version 20170624". Sorry about that. :confounded:

Changelog:
  • engine: fixed setting start/end color while a RGB Matrix is running

Bugs: ???
1.Sequence: Backward not working if selected "single shot".
2.Button matrix: If you add 1 pages with option to clone first page widgets, than this option goes to disabled and if you trying to add more pages after some time, new pages not cloning first page widgets.
3. Click and go not working. When you trying to click on gobo/effect/macro it's update picture, but not dmx.
It's by cool to hawe:
1. Option to hawe only click & Go button without knob or slider. Or just in widget appearance let to disable it :D

After installing software crashes on startup (MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.7.5). It always works with the beta versions of QLC+ 4.11.

Which "beta" (test) version ?
I think Qt 5.9.0 now requires macOS 10.10 or newer. MacOS 10.7 is 7 years old now...

With the beta version I means the test version of QLC+ 4.11. I understand that at a certain point old operating systems aren't support anymore. I just want to signalize that with the test version it works and the definitive version works not. For me it's not a problem. I use different versions of Mac OS X. But I still also use MacOS 10.7 because it's such a stable version for all my software. So I must think to upgrade …

By the way, Massimo thank you and the community for putting so much work in this awesome piece of software.
