It’s been only 21 months since the last post, but both Equalizer and me are still alive. This month we finally released the version 1.0, which was looong overdue.
Most notably, this release defines the stable API for all Equalizer 1.x releases. This means that all the functions marked with version 1.0 will be source-code compatible until we’ll release an Equalizer 2.0. Parts of the API are still undefined and unstable, in particular for the also-new Collage network library. However, 99% all of the functions used by the examples are stable.
Since the last major version, 0.9, there have been plenty of improvements and new features, e.g., subpixel compounds, reliable multicast for data distribution, runtime mono/stereo switch and many more. A comprehensive list is in the Release Notes.
Since this month I’ve started working on a new project based on Equalizer, and hopefully I’ll update this blog more regularly. More about this in another post…
