new csound~ (build date 2006_09_01)


    Sep 12 2006 | 2:50 pm
    Hi all,
    About two weeks ago, I uploaded a new version of csound~ and
    forgot to tell anyone. My sincerest apologies. The latest
    version (2006_09_01) along with improved install instructions
    can be found at:
    The latest version will allow WinXP users to work with Csound
    versions 5.02 and later, but is incompatible with earlier versions.
    A MacOSX version has also been added for people using MaxMSP 4.6 on
    a PPC Mac. An Intel/UB version of csound~ for MacOSX is not available
    at the moment.
    Relevant entries from the changelog are at the end of this
    email. Have fun!

    CHANGES.TXT:
    2006_09_01
    -> (MacOSX) Compiled a version of csound~ compatible with MaxMSP 4.6.
    -> Recompiled WinXP versions to work with Csound 5.02 and 5.03. The
    2006_09_01 build is incompatible with Csound 5.01 or earlier.
    2006_08_18
    -> Replaced RedBlack Tree code with a hash table to store invalue/outvalue
    names and values. This will not change the way you used invalue/outvalue
    feature. It may improve performance for low k-rate values.
    2006_06_15
    -> If message output is not enabled, then the command line string
    passed to csoundCompile() will not be printed to the window.
    -> Added messages "recordStart/recordStop/playStart/playStop".
    These messages control the newly added sequencer which can record
    all MIDI events, "control" message events, and "event" message
    events. It can also play them back.
    This feature is intended mainly for non-realtime rendering.
    Adding "-oSomeFileName.aif" to the "csound" command will enable
    non-realtime rendering and if there are any recorded events, they
    will be played back during the rendering.
    This feature has not been fully tested and should not be considered
    complete. Other than this entry in the change log, there is no
    documentation. If you haven't talked to me about it, then you probably
    shouldn't use it.
    2006_06_13
    -> Fixed command line parsing so that flags that look like negative
    numbers (e.g. "-3") are processed correctly.
    -> If rendering to a file and reading from a MIDI file, if the "-T"
    flag is not present, then it is added so that the rendering thread
    exits when the end of the MIDI file is reached.

      I have, thanks a lot!!!
      Just two minor possible improvements:
      Just rename the csound~_demo.mxt into csound~.help, thats what everybody
      wants to be loaded when alt-clicking on csound~...
      The instructions to edit the environment.plist could be enhanced by
      showing the use of the property list editor, which comes (I think) with
      the developer tools of OS X.
      In my case the environment.plist existed already and you would not want
      to overwrite existing entries...
      Elsewise everything worked right out of the box, thanks a lot, big
      improvement...

      Actually, that entails a minor change to csound~. I won't get into the
      gritty details, but I will put that in the next release.

      I wasn't aware that the Csound5 installer would overwrite pre-existing
      entries. I'll look into it and let the developers know what I find.
