Release Type: Production
Version: 1.1
Release Notes

QuartzBuilder 1.1 features numerous performance enhancements, including a state-of-the-art Iterator Accelerator that reduces iterator overhead by 5-15% and streamlined event handling. You're also able to launch an app in fullscreen mode on any monitor of your choice, in addition to having screen count and dimensions provided to the composition at runtime. Drag and Drop support and fade-in/out on start up/exit options were also added, to make your apps really shine.

Automatic updating via Sparkle was added, and you're now able to explicitly install the QuartzBuilder Protocol template from the App Menu.

Installation Instructions

Double-click the .zip file to uncompress the application. Place the application in your /Applications/ folder. Double-click the application.

QuartzBuilder allows you to easily create applications from your Quartz Composer creations, without having to muck about in Xcode.

Your compositions are encrypted, and Official API plugins, Unofficial API plugins, and simple resources are automatically bundled with the generated application.

Cocoa NSApplication and NSWindow events and properties are exposed to the composition, allowing unprecedented control over the rendering environment — for example, the window can be made full-screen on launch.
