hello, my name is Minoru Ito(mino).

I would like to announce hold a competition of cover art & illustrations for new vvvv book!

Now I'm writing the book in Japanese. I have already asked cooperation to several persons.
Then, we need several graphics published in a book.

Please refer to this forum thread and upload your works/images/pictures or send e-mail to me.
we (me, editor, designer) will choose 1 for cover art and 5-7 for illustration in the book.

if you have any question, please comment here.
we are looking forward to see your works!

When writing a plugin for vvvv the developer needs to at least add a reference to the VVVV.PluginInterfaces assembly. In order to do so there've been two choices up till now:

  1. Reference the assembly directly (e.g. from a vvvv-release)
  2. Reference the VVVV.PluginInterfaces project from the vvvv-sdk

Both of these choices have drawbacks. Referencing directly requires the developer to update the assemblies manually with every new vvvv release, referencing the project enforced the inclusion of the whole vvvv-sdk which is quite large and sometimes tiresome to build.

Thanks to NuGet (a package manager for the windows development platform) and TeamCity (a build and NuGet server) a third choice emerged without the drawbacks mentioned above: referencing the assembly via a NuGet package.

Everytime our build server builds a new version of vvvv, it will also create a bunch of NuGet packages (VVVV.PluginInterfaces, VVVV.Utils, etc.) with the appropriate version information. When doing an alpha build those packages will be considered as a so called pre-release package by NuGet, when doing a beta build those packages will be considered as a stable release.

All packages prefixed with VVVV. are intended to be used for plugin development only and will therefor install all references in a way so that they won't get copied to the output folder (Copy Local set to false). This was done to avoid assembly conflicts at runtime.

Now in order to create a plugin for vvvv by using NuGet, the developer has to:

  1. Ensure the project is configured with the platforms x86 and x64.
  2. Add http://vvvv.org:8111/guestAuth/app/nuget/v1/FeedService.svc/ as a NuGet package source in the settings of the NuGet package manager shipped with either Visual Studio or Sharp Develop.
  3. Select the VVVV.PluginInterfaces package and click install.

NuGet will now download and add all the necessary dependencies to the project file and whenever a new version of vvvv is available, the NuGet package manager will ask whether or not to update the installed packages.

When installing the packages it might happen that the IDE won't find the referenced assemblies immediately (putting a warning sign on it, or not even showing them). In such a case ensure that the solution build configuration is setup properly (most of the VVVV.* packages are only available for x86 and x64, not AnyCPU) and/or reload the whole solution.

Where Transfer Buchhandlung, An der Schlanken Mathilde 3, Dortmund, Germany

Hello VVVV users in Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany,

We are invited the Prototyping Interfaces Team to present THE BOOKhttp://prototypinginterfaces.com in combination with a little Workshop at the Bookstorehttp://www.transfer-dortmund.de in Dortmund.
To make the evening a special event Jochen Grieving of Transfer Bookstore and Jochen Leinberger one of the authors (aka korriander at the forum) developed an exclusive Prototype which will go live on Saturday. Working Title is: "potentiometer-multiscreen-fiducial-installation"

planning "potentiometer-multiscreen-fiducial-installation"

So if you are located in Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany, and especially in the Ruhrpott come and get in touch with Prototyping VVVV and like mined people.

ladies and bois,

this is to announce yet another grande release of your favorite multipurpose toolkit that is vvvv. again we started out with a primary focus on bugfixing but along the way came up with some ideas..

so most importantly bug/fixwise:

and featurewise:

also this release sees a fat drop of next generation girlpowers. please check your

 \girlpower\The Next Generation

to find an unprecedented collection of finely documented demos and overviews covering IO topics like: Arduino, Databases, DMX, Midi, Networking, TUIO and the Web.

so they say vvvv is hard to learn? depends. they say vvvv lacks documentation? wrong. vvvvs documentation taskforce in the manifestation of robotanton is unstoppable. much more to come... learning/teaching resources for vvvv are getting ready to play with the grownups. tweet that already!

and while we have you reading..please take a second to update your personal settings with infos you'd like to share and then see the new connections page for some convenient listings.

that is it for now. more changes to arrive in the alpha builds soon..

now we got something here this time...

besides a couple of fixes as you can see in the changelog we'd like to particularly point your interest to the fine (and massive) drop of arduino/firmata girlpowers by jens.a.e to whom we're also of course still greatful for the arduino/firmata nodes that come with this very same pack already since quite a while now. those are finally the demos he promised from his node13 workshop + some more as it seems. find them under:


gut patch!

dear commercial users of vvvv,

vvvv 45beta31.2 brings an update to vvvv's recently introduced dongle protection mechanism fixing a problem that was reported earlier. As we've been kindly informed by vux our initial release had a flaw that let someone with access to the dongle (for a specific project) and knowledge of the vvvv-api dump out un-encrypted patches (of that specific project) since the api simply has functionality for this. This was possible because vvvv didn't check if any of the plugins it loaded was tampered with.

для Вашего большой бизнеса

With this release the protection mechanism now prohibits such attacks by making sure only plugins are being loaded that were also there when the project was encrypted.

Special Offer

If you order until 31 12 2013 dongles 1-3 will only be 200€ each (Further volume discounts will still be applied off the original 250€).

For further information see: Protektor
For pricing and ordering see: Licensing
