Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Release: File Tools, v20071207

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071207
Release Notes

This is an update of the original Kineme Plugin's file-related patches. Patches include:

  • Document Info
  • File Type
  • String With File

Release: MIDI Tools, v20071204

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071204
Release Notes

Initial public Leopard port of the Original Kineme Plugin's Global MIDI Patches (with lame string filtering). Some lucky users have actually been playing with various incarnations of this for a month or two now, but now it's official :)

Plugins include:

  • Global MIDI Input Note
  • Global MIDI Input CC
  • Global MIDI Output Note
  • Global MIDI Output CC
  • Global MIDI Clock

If the input filter is blank, all MIDI Sources are matched (making them global by default).

Release: WiiMote Control, v20071204

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071204
Release Notes

This version supports framework-level timeout handling (where it should be), so you can now reliably wait as long as you want before connecting. Still a bit picky, but at least it's not due to randomly timing out anymore.

Release: GL Tools, v20071203

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071203
Release Notes

Further developing GLTools. Added a non-lame Field of View patch commissioned by coremelt. Please suggest some more features to make 0.4 useful.

Release: WiiMote Control, v20071202

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071202
Release Notes

Hot on the heals of the previous WiiMote Control is this very new beta. Shortly after releasing yesterday's version, I gutted it and reimplemented the connect/disconnect parts.

Cool New Things:

  • Force Feedback support
  • LED Control
  • Bluetooth timeout error is now handled, and appropriate cleanup/restart action is taken behind the scenes to expand the 15 second window indefinitely [didn't quite work]
  • Hopefully more stable

Release: WiiMote Control, v20071201

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071201
Release Notes

I've apparently fixed the connectivity issues that would crash the WiiMote Control patch. I'm not sure how stable it is, and there are a number of things I still need to fix (nunchuk support, better IR support, atan2 [harder than I initially thought], etc) before a production public release. But for you early adopters, this might be useful :)

Release: GL Tools, v20071126

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071126
Release Notes

Yet another GLTools beta (I'm starting to think this will never end! :) — Lots of performance enhancements.

  • CGL Macros are now used, for context-switch-free operation (this prevents flickering when transparent windows are moved over the rendering window, finally!)
  • GL Point now supports ARB_point_sprite
  • Context Info has two additional outputs: point texture minimum and maximum size. Context Info is also context-clean now too (it was changing the context on init, so I missed that one when doing context cleaning)
  • compiler now uses relaxed IEEE floating point standards (-ffast-math for you gcc junkies). This should result in marginally higher frame rates, but might also cause some problems in weird corner cases. Please let me know if this happens, and I'll change it back.

Release: GL Tools, v20071125

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071125
Release Notes

This beta addresses some GL Errors in GL Point and GL Line. A portion of the glstate wasn't being preserved as it should have been.

Release: Spooky Send/Receive, v0.1

Release Type: Production
Version: 0.1
Release Notes
Warning: These patches are now part of DataTools. Use that plugin instead.

This is the initial release of our "Spooky" patch plugin for Leopard.

Included are two patches:

  • Spooky Send
  • Spooky Receive

Whatever you provide to the sender becomes available to the receiver. You can "tune" each sender and receiver to have multiple pairs. Multiple receivers can listen to the same sender. If multiple senders are on the same channel, the one with the highest Layer Number prevails.

As an added bonus, multi-patch applications that make use of this patch can actually pass data Between Different Renderers — that's right, you can tie all your compositions together with this patch set. Apparently this is possible ;)

This patch is named after quantum entanglement, sometimes described as "Spooky Action."

Release: GL Tools, v20071119

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071119
Release Notes

This is likely to be the last Beta of GL Tools before an official release, provided no other issues are discovered.

The Polygon Mode errors caused by other GL Tools patches have been fixed (via super aggressive GL state saving/restoration). Compile options were also changed to optimize more (don't know how that got turned off ...), so it might be a tiny bit snappier.

Next up, backporting it all to Tiger...
