Release: CompositionTool, v20080724

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20080724
Release Notes

This is a fairly rough initial beta release of CompositionTool, a tool for meta-composition management and inspection.

This version supports Mass Flattening and PlugIn Inspection.

Mass Flattening is useful if you maintain many compositions, and want to leverage the power of Virtual Patches without needing to distribute the virtual patches or instruct users on how to install them. Mass Flatten rolls them all up into a single, self-contained composition, just like QC's "Save A Flattened Copy As..." option.

PlugIn Inspection inspects a composition's patches, and tells you whether or not the composition will work in Safe Mode. It also lists all the patches used, and where those patches are stored (which framework or plugin supplies them). Handy to make sure you're not distributing something that won't work for the remote user without additional plugins to install.

The Mass Flatten feature was commissioned by CoreMelt.

Feel free to suggest additional features -- there are a few that have already been mentioned, but we're always up for more.

[P.S. there's a contest to make this app's production icon. If you win the contest, you get to have your icon featured on a kineme application! ;) ]

[Edit 2: now updated to handle the Sphere patch properly -- special case in the QCFramework...]
