XP: Jitter 1.6.2 rc1
Release candidate version of Jitter 1.6.2 for Windows XP is available
at the following link:
You will need to download and install MaxMSP 4.6.2 rc1 for Windows
XP. I’ve added the message posted earlier today to the maxmsp list at
bottom. Just like the last XP 1.6 beta, uninstalling earlier versions
of Jitter 1.6 beta is necessary, and you can leave Jitter 1.5
installed with MaxMSP 4.5 if you like. There should be no
compatibility problems with the two versions (provided you don’t mix
up their search paths).
Please let us know if you experience any problems with this release,
with examples and steps to reproduce where necessary.
The first release candidate for MaxMSP 4.6.2 is now available at the
Note: Before installing this please manually uninstall any prior Max/
MSP 4.6 *beta* you might have installed. (This does not apply to
prior 4.5.x versions.)
You do not need to uninstall Max/MSP 4.5 — 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.
Note that MaxMSP 4.6 does not have a different demo period from
MaxMSP 4.5 and that you will need to own the software if your demo
period has expired.
While this version seems to be pretty stable, as always with beta
software, it is not recommended for installation/performance work,
and we recommended that you back up your work before installing and
more often while working with the software.
Please see the ChangeLog.rtf in the attached zip file for changes.
Some highlights (from an XP perspective):
1. vst~: fix for plugs that block the Max queue and UI while mouse
is down in their UI.
2. Max should now give you the opportunity to save your work if XP
is shutdown while max is running and there are modified patchers open.
Please let us know if either of the above fixes don’t work for you.
