  • live.step: down message works as expected when display_seq is set to All.
  • Double clicking on a bogus poly~ no longer causes crashes.
  • levelmeter~ displays the marker color properly.
  • levelmeter~'s shadow respects needle transparency.
  • textbutton no longer crashes when text is empty.

  • sfplay~ can now open audio files with long names.
  • buffer~ updates number of channels on import.

  • Patch cords are deselected when switching to presentation mode thus preventing accidental cord deletion or floating diamonds.
  • File browser: fixed 'reveal in finder’ function for items displayed in a folder listing.

  • vst~: editor window for the default plug-in now displays correct gain values.

  • js: Eliminated a source of GC-related memory leakage when querying Patcher object properties.
  • jsliveapi: eliminated random crashing in GC code.
  • poly~ no longer crashes when the patchername message has a bad argument.
  • cellblock: A –1/-1 entry eliminates the visible cell selection.
  • “; max showclue” displays the clue window in runtime and standalones (for objects which have annotation attributes set).
  • jit.openexr includes Cg frameworks automatically when making a standalone.
  • jit.gl.text2d: fix for memory leak.
  • pattr: eliminated potential memory corruption when bound objects are re-instantiated.
  • Fixed saving from a subpatcher in an abstraction that was edited by issuing the MRO command on a new view of a bpatcher.
  • Closing top-level-patcher when an abstraction is open, MRO’d and dirty now gives the user a choice of what to do (save, discard, cancel).
  • svg files are properly included in a collective.
  • jit.gl.text2d: more memory leak fixes.
  • Fix for possible crash showing clue window on startup.
  • Fix for warning message called on invalid object messages when jitter objects are instantiated but jitter is not authorized.
  • Fix for crashes when loading jit.vcr or jit.gl.asyncread when jitter is not authorized.
  • loadbang in patcher containing poly~ no longer fires inappropriately first time the poly~ reloads its patcher.
  • Disabling the debugger now restores original overdrive setting automatically.
  • jit.conway:fix for divide by zero crashes with birthmark enabled.
  • Watchpoints and breakpoints are disabled for a device open in the MFL editor to avoid crashes.
  • When Debug is enabled and an MFL device is open in the editor the debugger will now ignore any breakpoints or watchpoints that are hit from the scheduler thread.

  • Window getsize -> thispatcher now works before subpatcher or abstraction window is opened for a first time.
  • Preset can now store large multisliders.
  • Large multislider no longer crashes when recalled by a preset object through send/receive.
  • jit.vcr: fix for crash when Jitter is not authorized.

  • windows: no longer drops sysex messages when too many are received too quickly.
  • cellblock: Fix calculations for horizontal scrolling boundaries.
  • parameters: new attribute to toggle deferral of automation and remote control output to the GUI thread; off by default, this attribute can be used to reduce the frequency of value changes resulting from automation and significantly reduce processor load. In combination with the new parameter_speedlim attribute, device developers now have fairly comprehensive control over the automation of their parameters.
  • Fix for CoreAudio support for Tascam US-1641.
  • filtergraph~ now has a hfgcolor attribute to set the highlight foreground color.
