Big things are happening. Full demo will require a few more nodes - for now only boolean properties are usable.

What's new?
- some nodes have new aerodynamic shape
- nodes can have "property nodes" which allow more granular control
- property nodes are colored according to their data type (color assignment will change)
- absolute control over bluetooth: enabling/disabling, initiating/cancelling scan, changing discoverable status, broadcasted name, reading hardware address and retrieving devices found during scanning

Here is a sample of (mostly) multi-touch improvements that came from a different approach to animations:

Sadly, there is still a lot to do before it becomes stable...

ETA: ...month?
- Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight?
- The same thing we do every night, Pinky - we port Dessin to OpenGL!

Dessin 2.12 is out. This release focused on node placement - 2 new mechanisms were introduced to ease this task. Some performance improvements and one new node (bluetooth status) also managed to slip in. 

Sadly - network unfolding didn't made it and will remain as dead code until some future release. There are more important features for now.

If you didn't get 2.12 through automatic update - wait a few days. After last week bug that prevented over 3k users from running Dessin, all new updates will be rolled out gradually. First to 5% random users and after 3 days, if there were no bugs, to the other 95%.

Another feature from 2.12 that makes node placement a breeze.

A feature from 2.12 that makes node management easier.

There was a bug in a version 2.11. It prevented from loading Dessin after update if certain nodes were present. In a few hours an update will come that will fix it.

This week I expect small Dessin release that will contain new automatic placement methods - improved magnetization (which will be called "autoplacing" from this release on), network unfolding and rigid connections. New autoplacing algorithm (http://www.scs.carleton.ca/~jit/publications/papers/bmm01.ps) will make nodes appear right where they should be (instead of slowly moving towards optimal position).

Old magnetization algorithm could recognize graph structure and flip the network upside down to show it. It was a nice feature but one problem with it was that it used a global algorithm. Turning it on and off on a single node was wildly inefficient and sometimes caused network oscillations. In the next version it will be called "Unfold" and it will process whole connected component.

Update of Dessin just released (2.10). New stuff includes: excel-like calculation nodes: "Number", "Add" and "Multiply"; "Charging" node, "Flashlight" node and some bugfixes.
