New Windows XP Betas: MaxMSP 4.6.2 B15 and Jitter 1.6.2 B9

    Sep 08 2006 | 9:27 pm
    Updated Windows XP beta versions for Max/MSP and Jitter are now available at the links below.
    Note: Before installing either of these you must first *manually* uninstall any prior Max/MSP 4.6 or Jitter 1.6 beta version via the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel Applet. (This only applies if you have previously installed a 4.6 or 1.6 beta on the machine of course).
    You do not need to uninstall Max/MSP 4.5 or Jitter 1.5 -- parallel installs should work by default. But, should you decide you would like to, please note that there are separate entries in the Add/Remove Control Panel Applet for each version.
    As always, please let us know of any problems you encounter with example patches, steps to reproduce, and system information. Please post Jitter related issues to the Jitter forum and MaxMSP related issues to the MaxMSP forum.
    Jitter 1.6 requires MaxMSP 4.6, and release notes are included in the downloadable archives. Note that MaxMSP 4.6 and Jitter 1.6 do not have a different demo period from MaxMSP 4.5 and Jitter 1.5 and that you will need to own the software if these demo periods have expired.
    Please let us know if you have any issues with the installers, especially if there are problems with .NET version dependencies as the Jitter installer has exhibited in the past.
    While these versions seem to be pretty stable, as always with beta software, it is not recommended for installation/performance work, and recommended that you back up your work before installing and more often while working with the software.
    Thanks, Rob and Joshua
