unicorn in alpha builds

helos,

this is to announce that vvvv alpha-builds now include the afformentioned unicode changes.

summarized to you this means:

  • no more dealing with UTF8 vs. ANSI on various string-related nodes
  • Reader/Writer (String) now default to UTF8 (which can of course still be changed to other encodings. also note that when loading old patches the old default is being preserved!)
  • no more strange characters in patches for asian users
  • in a totally unrelated coincidence it fixes https for HTTP (Network Get)

but:

  • saving a patch with unicorn-characters in a unicorn-alpha will not let you open the same patch in older vvvv releases. if you still need to do so there is a way... bug us in the alpha-forum for more information.
  • MySQL nodes had to be removed (for now)
information given in the vvvv-unicorn-upgrade blog-post is no longer accurate.

enjoy.
and if you find a specific unicode-related bugger -> alpha forum.

@devvvvelopers: this would be a good time to pull upstream
