vvvvhat happened in January 2019

previously on vvvv: vvvvhat happened in December 2018

here we go,

clickclickclick. 2018 is numbered and we're now heading towards the biggest release in vvvv history. as announced previously: vvvv gamma.

we're still on track regarding our roadmap and here is a little status report:

  • UI rework is well under way, looking smooth and shiny
  • spreadable IOBoxes are a thing, need refinements
  • editing patches is no longer blocking renderers
  • we simplified the document structure to have a better default workflow
  • tons of helppatches are in the works

none of these are in alphas yet, but if things go well, they should land soon.

  • and not part of the initial release, but work is also progressing on integrating xenko...

while you're waiting and haven't yet, please fill out the 2019 Survvvvey!

Yay to ui rework! Does that include multiple VL windows?

microdee 05/02/2019 - 17:29

@dennis: that would make sense! so it's 50/50

joreg 05/02/2019 - 18:38

@dennis: am afraid not yet. UI was too broad a term to use. the rework concerns only everything that happens inside the window (-> now skia drawing). windowing is a separate step still to come.

microdee 05/02/2019 - 20:09

@joreg: just promise, you guys won't release vvvv gamma without multiple windows

joreg 05/02/2019 - 20:56

@microdee i'm afraid this is not planned to be included in gamma atm. we are aware it is one of the more requested features. but we have to prioritize at some point..

dennis 06/02/2019 - 11:16

@joreg too bad.. but i'm assuming skia ui drawing comes with a lot better performance, so definitely looking forward to that

sorry but this is kinda a last nail in the coffin. show me any serious authoring software not having multiple windows, or at least multiple sub windows inside a proper one (not only tabs). This is not a "more requested feature" or a "usability extra" this is something I'm expecting from any half decent professional authoring environment. People should take this granted. I wouldn't consider my software anywhere near releasable without it. It would be at least as crucial for me as undo or saving files. I know it's painful to do with the library you're using for UI, and it's not as exciting to develop as other cooler features, but you guys have time, this problem have been solved countless many other times before, just grind your teeth and do it, you're better developers than this.
