Hi All,

I've put up a new release at:

http://blue.kunstmusik.com/

This release includes a new score parser that should use much less memory and perform more quickly. Also, the issue with fout should now be fixed with the setting of SFDIR when running with the API.

Also, this release is the first to use Netbeans RCP 8.0. From my testing things are working alright, but let me know if you run into any issues.

Thanks!
steven



>Notes for 2.5.11<
[release 2014.04.10]

UPDATED/FIX

* Rewrote score parser for much better speed and greatly reduced memory
  requirements

* Replaced score expression evaluator with exp4j for better performance

FIX

* When using the Csound API, set --env:SFDIR=/path/to/csd so that things like
  fout will write output relative to the directory where the .blue/.csd is used

Hi All,

I've put up blue 2.5.7:

http://blue.kunstmusik.com

This release contains a couple of fixes and a feature enhancement for JMask.  The release notes are pasted below.

Thanks!
steven


[CHANGE LOG]

>Notes for 2.5.7<
[release 2014.01.09]

UPDATED

* RFE #150: Jmask: Updated UI, moved bar from left hand side to top top for
  parameters, added ability to set the name for the parameter by double clicking
  the bar, added default values for p1, p2, and p3 as "Instrument ID", "Start",
  and "Duration"

* Updated opcode definitions with latest from Csound Manual (includes things
  like pvstanal, array opcode section, etc.)

FIX

* Bug #89: Commandline Runner when rendering to disk was adding "-L stdin",
  causing the Blue render to hang on Windows; now removed for all platforms as
  input is unnecessary when rendering to disk

* Bug #91: Modified Locale default for formatting of numbers to use English 
  formatting (i.e. always use decimal instead of comma).  This affects things 
  like Spinner components, and the change should make number formatting uniform
  across Blue, matching Csound's number format

>Notes for 2.5.3<
[release 2013.09.21]

NEW

* Under Project menu, added option to "Generate Realtime CSD to Screen" that 
  shows what the CSD contains for realtime rendering; user can modify shortcuts
  under program options to add a keyboard shortcut

FIX

* Pasting PolyObjects that contain Instance SoundObjects where the source object
  was removed from the SoundObject Library would cause orphan Instance objects
  to be pasted in; redid paste logic so that SoundObjects pointed to from
  pasted Instances, including those within PolyObjects, are re-added to the
  SoundObject Library

Hi All,

I've moved all tickets (Bugs, Feature Requests) to Blue's Github page:

http://www.github.com/kunstmusik/blue/issues

I have removed the older issue trackers from Sourceforge and updated the links within the Blue website.  I have also updated the links within the Blue Help menu, though that will be released in 2.6.0 (or 2.5.xx if I issue one before 2.6).  

If you submitted a ticket on Sourceforge, they are on Github but you will not receive notifications unless you go to the Github issue and subscribe to it.  For any older ticket, when I have a chance to look into the ticket, I will try to contact the person who submitted it on Sourceforge. 

Thanks!
steven

>Notes for 2.5.8<
[release 2014.01.16]

NEW

* RFE #127: Added sub-menu to text editor popups for orc editing for "Blue 
  Opcodes" that has entries for "blueMixerOut", "blueMixerOut (SubChannel)", and
  "blueMixerIn"

* RFE #88: BlueSynthBuilder: added new grid settings to set grid width, height,
  style (None, Dot, Line), and snap enabled. For projects before 2.5.8, older
  behavior is preserved and will default to style None and snap disabled.

* Examples: 
 
  * soundsObjects/external_ngen1a.blue, soundsObjects/external_ngen1b.blue: 
Example of using nGen from Blue (contributed by Menno Knevel)

  * Updated AthenaCL examples in soundObjects folder 
    (contributed by Menno Knevel)


UPDATED

* BlueSynthBuilder: small optimization: if last object that was being edited is 
  the same as the one being requested to edit, don't bother clearing the 
  interface

* BlueSynthBuilder: Added use of Backspace to delete items in addition the 
  previous delete key option

FIX

* Bug #92: Fixed setting of note pitch value to before setting of start time 
  when updating note values on mouse release

* BlueSynthBuilder: On Mac OSX, made paste shortcut use cmd-click instead of 
  ctrl-click, as ctrl-click is used by the OS as an alias for right-clicking

DOCUMENTATION

* BlueSynthBuilder: Added information about Grid Settings, always-on instrument
  code, updated images

* JMask: updated screenshots, added information about editing field names

* Added some basic information about the Code Editor to new "Code Editor" 
  section under "Tools"

Hi All,

I've pushed up a bug fix release at:

http://blue.kunstmusik.com

This release is using the newer Netbeans 7.4 Rich Client Platform, as well as contains some bug fixes.  To note, I've recently purchased a Windows 8.1 tablet (Dell Venue 8 Pro) that I bought for the purpose of using Blue/Csound on the go.  The bug fix here fixes an issue where the BlueLiveToolbar would disappear that I found when running on the tablet.  I will be using this device regularly so will be doing more regular testing of Blue on Windows.

Thanks!
steven


>Notes for 2.5.4<
[release 2013.11.28]

UPDATED

* Updated to Netbeans RCP 7.4

FIX

* issue with BlueLive toolbar not showing if hidden when Blue closed in previous
  run 

* Show error message balloon if unable to run Commandline Runner for better 
  information for the user

Hi All,

I'm happy to announce a new release of Blue is now available at:

http://blue.kunstmusik.com

This release is primarily an update to support using the Csound 6 API from Blue, as well as a number of bug fixes. ChangeLog is listed below. 

Note: Blue is still able to run with the Csound 5 API, but can only support one or the other at runtime.  If you have both but want to stick to using the Csound 5 API, you will need to modify blue/etc/blue.conf to add "-J-DDISABLE_CSOUND6=true" to the default_options there.  I also found that the current Java interface for Windows (6.00.1) does not work: it will load but will cause errors if you try to use it. The bug has been reported and I'm also investigating.  Until then, you should use the above flag to disable Csound 6.

Thanks!
steven


[CHANGE LOG]

>Notes for 2.5.0<
[released 2013.08.12]

NEW

* Java 7 now required for Blue (Netbeans RCP library that Blue uses has 
  updated to it)

* Render service system reimplemented:
  
  * Added support for Csound6 API.  If Csound6 is found, user gets option for
    CS6 or Commandline.  If CS6 is not found, Blue will check if CS5 is 
    available. If it is, user will get that option, or only have option for 
    Commandline runner. Additionally, user can add -J-DDISABLE_CSOUND6=true in
    blue/etc/blue.conf to disable CS6 API usage and allow CS5 option.

  * Service selection is now done in Program Options under Realtime and Disk
    Render settings.  

  * The "Use API" button has been removed from the application menu and General
    Settings. 

  * Bug #82 (issue with auditioning causing crashes) should now be fixed

  * Manual entries updated for Installation and Program Options
 
* Added Steven Yi's "TimeSphere" to the examples/pieces/stevenYi folder

FIX

* SoundObject Library: When removing a library item, dialog now asks users to 
  confirm action.  If confirmed, all Instances of the SoundObject will be 
  removed from the Score and SoundObjectLibrary.

* On Mac, fixed default csound command for Utility and DiskRender settings to be
  "/usr/local/bin/csound" instead of "csound"

* UDO Import Dialog for importing from UDO Repository on Csounds.com was 
  throwing a NullPointerException when opened from a Dialog (i.e. Effects
  Library Dialog)

* Bug #84 - Fixed Zak LineObject to allow using 0 for channel
