Fresh release from github, with a decent amount of changes, bug fixes, new bits and bobs.
For full details, please checkout:
Still here are some of the most notable parts:
And as usual , please report issues here (and not in the forums), small patch to reproduce is also appreciated ;)
previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in July 2016
let me do you a favour by wrapping up all the wonderfull things that happened this past month in our little univvvverse.
Probably the most active month since we have records, fasten your seatbelts, here comes two major new contributions:
wow already, but there are some more shiny new things:
|and there've been updates to the following:||plus some teasers:|
aaaand we are grateful to ravazquez who translated quite some wiki pages to spanish. Gracias amigo!
If Mrs. Krenz thinks she gets away with this, without doing a related workshop at node17 she has cut herself (traditional austrian saying). More beauty onhttp://frau-krenz.de/folding-patterns
Students of the Interactive Architecture course at the Bartlett in London found some use for vvvv: A Portable Air Driven System for Kinetic Structures and Real-Time Object Tracking Systems.
Quadrature are preparing for their exhibition at this years Ars Electronica Festival: Von absurden Landschaften und habitablen Exoplaneten
There is something in the bushes... if you haven't already, subscribe to the devvvv blog!
And thats already it again. If i missed anything please add it in the comments. Have a good patch!

Looking for a job? As a professor? At a university?
I ran across these offers recently which could be suitable for some of you dear readers:
Professorin/Professor (50%, W2 analog) Internet der Dinge - Angewandte Elektrotechnik in der Produktentwicklung
Details auf Deutsch
The Interactive Architecture Lab is an anti-disciplinary studio interested in the Behaviour and Interaction of Things, Environments and their Inhabitants. We design, build and experiment with Responsive Environments, Robotics and Kinetic Structures, Augmented and Multi-Sensory Interfaces, Wearable Computing and Prosthetics, the Internet of Things, Performance and Choreography. We are growing and focusing our interests particularly into augmented & virtual reality worlds and the future of dance & performance. We are looking to fill teaching roles in technical, theoretical and design aspects of our 12 month masters programme, from October 2016.
From now on: Firmata Second Service.
Good news everyone, from now on you're getting a brand new set of nodes able to talk to your loaded-with-firmata Arduino Boards:
Hardware for the development was kindly provided by QUADRATURE.
Oh, by the way, these new Arduino nodes are fully implemented in VL.
And of course there are some caveats.
The nodes are now available in Alpha Builds.
previously on VL: VL Winter Update
Still? Yep, spring has passed, summer is in full bloom and we're still finishing up that branch... To learn more about what we're working on at the moment and what you can expect with the next alpha-release, please read on, below the 'what the vl' intro.
VL is a general purpose visual programming language that combines dataflow with features known from object-oriented programming. It comes with a compiler that builds to the .net intermediate language and as such produces executables and libraries compatible to .net/mono.
Language features include but are not limited to:
As a proof of concept VL is now embedded into vvvv before it will later be available in a standalone development environment. Also we're planning for VL to be embeddable in other software products allowing it to become a dynamic plugin provider for various applications...
The main reason for the internal rework we started a few month ago (as mentioned in the previous update) was to get the underlying model that describes a VL program immutable. Immuhat? and why? I'm afraid the answer to that is gonna be a bit technical but since you asked I'd like to quote wikipedia on Immutable Object:
When Thu, Aug 18th 2016 - 11:00 until Fri, Aug 19th 2016 - 18:00
Where Floating art galleries BETANOVUSS and NOASS, AB dambis 2, Riga LV-1048, Latvia
Just a couple of hours left to apply for paticipating in my workshop on visual intruments in Riga, latvia on August 18 & 19.
previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in June 2016
time flies and i am glad another month has just started which gives us a break to look back at all the things that happened recently. it's been a lot, check this:
there were some small updates on our own behalf:
then just last week digitalwannabe went on a rampage releasing two powerful plugins:
further we got some fixes/improvements to existing contributions:
boooom..let that all sink for a while...then:
Ars Electronica has setup two exhibitions including works by vvvv users:
and berliners listen up:
rrrr will be performing at the upcoming Berlin Atonal 2016 festival. i cannot set a link to his works on the website(!), so please help yourself looking for "Rainer Kohlberger". see you there...
hmpff..the spring-update is already written and is mostly missing images. i can tell you it is a long one...if that helps. anyway not happy with it being delayed...working on it (and everything).
enough. have i missed something? please add it in the comments. gut patch!
vvvv now has native support for both sending and receiving TUIO messages!
The following nodes are available in latest alphas:
For receiving TUIO messages the individual split nodes can be used directly. The TUIOBundler is used for combining different types of TUIO messages in order to send them in one bundle.
It did what it was supposed to with only two caveats:
Enter VL: While preparing the standard library for VL it was a good exercise to create probably the worlds-first implementation of the TUIO protocol in a visual programming language. And since we can make nodes we have in VL available as nodes in vvvv it was a just a few more clicks to make the new implementation even useable for non-vl patchers. You're welcome!
There is more to the nerds pleasing: TUIO is based on the OSC protocol which meant that before being able to implement TUIO, we needed an implementation of the OSC protocol. As we've pointed out before, in VL we have the possibility to import .net libraries. So one way to support OSC in VL would have certainly been to import one of the many existing OSC libraries for .net. In fact we did that and it was good to see that it just worked. Still the real challenge of course was to also create possibly the worlds-first implementation of OSC in a visual programming language. So here we are..
If you're interested in the implementations have a look at the VL files in:
Otherwise just go ahead, use the nodes in vvvv and please report your findings in the comments or in the alpha forum.
