Cycling '74 has updated Max/MSP to v5.0.6.


Bug Fixes and New Features in v5.0.6:
  • Fixed excessive memory allocation when zooming in very far.
  • Filebrowser: new 'description' column displays description metadata about objects in the search path.
  • Filebrowser: fixed bug where files that have been deleted from the searchpath still show in the filebrowser.
  • Pattrhub: fixed parent resolution bug introduced in 5.0.5.
  • Delay~: fixed problem with setting delay time in samples -- accuracy was messed up and value was corrupted by sample rate changes.
  • Sysexout doesn't appear in the autocompletion anymore, because it doesn't exist.
  • Curve~ now restarts properly after a stop message.

  • Groove~ doesn't crash when double clicking on the object when it's not attached to a valid buffer~.
  • Delay~: delay time conversion via ITM or initial argument uses rounding rather than truncation.
  • Fix for crash with the combination of quickref menu, jit.gl.*, and frozen attributes.
  • Args attribute now visible (only takes effect with each patcher load). made parallel message an attribute. removed redundancies of messages and attributes for steal, voices, and vs.
  • Fix for stack overflows with large chains of message boxes.
  • Seq: hook message accepts floats again.
  • Sfrecord~ can use 2 symbols as arguments as documented.

  • Augraph: audio is now stopped before loading a sound bank to avoid crashes.
  • Minmax~ works properly with vector size of 1 sample.
  • Line: removed useless dump outlet.
  • Multiple instances of different standalone applications can now be launched.

  • Preferences window label for Refresh Interval (ms) changed to Refresh Rate (Hz) to match documentation (and what it actually does).
  • JSON parser now understands json character escapes of form uxxxx (where x is one hex digit) and this can be a convenient way of inserting a special character into a patcher.

  • jit.expr: fixed crashes with malformed expressions.
  • Tri~: fixed crash when modulating high frequencies.
  • Choosing the Preferences item on the Mac no longer crashes if menus defined by the menubar object are in use.
