Resolume Maintenance: 7.0.3 & 6.1.4 Released

We're in full on maintenance mode here at Resolume HQ to make sure v7 becomes just as stable as v6 as soon as possible. Unfortunately a new major release (like 6.0.0 and 7.0.0) usually comes with a few bugs because they contain a lot of new code and have not yet been road-tested as much. Please keep sending us your feedback on mail@resolume.com and send in crash reports so we can fix them as soon as possible. This is our top priority right now.

Resolume 7.0.3
Resolume 7.0.3 fixes a lot of bugs and some crashes that were occurring, especially when switching decks. Denon StageLinQ network connection is now much more robust and compatible with the Prime 4. This version is compatible with FFGL 2.1 plugins which has a few improvements so plugins can be made more user friendly. All our macOS installers are now notarised by Apple to ensure a smooth installation on macOS 10.15 Catalina.

Resolume 6.1.4
While working on bug fixes for v7 some bug fixes were easy to transfer to v6. So here is an even better version of good old v6: 6.1.4

Download
Checkout the download page or select "Check for Updates..." in the Avenue or Arena menu and it will self-update.

Hotfix Monday Sept 30th
If Resolume could not startup on your Windows computer with an AMD video card then please download again. This issue is fixed in Arena 7.0.3 rev66005 and Avenue 7.0.3 rev 65698.

FFGL 2.1 in Resolume 7.0.3
We've made some improvements to the FFGL plugin SDK so plugin developers can make their effects more user friendly. Full details and sample code are on GitHub. https://github.com/resolume/ffgl
+ Added support for embedding a thumbnail inside the plugin. See the "CustomThumbnail" example on how to expose your thumbnail.
+ Added support for File parameters. The plugin can create a file param and specify what extensions it supports, the host then has enough information to show a file chooser dialog with active extension filtering.
+ Added support for toggling parameter visibility.
+ Added support for parameter visibility events. (A plugin can now toggle visibility of a parameter on the fly)
+ Reintroduction of Scoped bindings. (Removed unsafe resetOpenGLState function, use the ScopedBinding classes instead)
+ The Module Definition File is no longer required on Windows.
+ The SDK no longer adjusts any textures to use GL_CLAMP_TO_BORDER.
+ Renamed CFreeFrameGLPlugin class to CFFGLPlugin. Plugins now need to inherit from the CFFGLPlugin class.
+ Fixed param value being normalized when ranges are involved. Values going between host and plugins are now the actual values, not the phase within that parameter's range.
+ Fixed some internal SDK warnings, convoluted implementations and inconsistencies in namings. (Most notably the quickstart module now uses the same conventions as the ffgl and ffglex modules)

Comment from asjer:

So how's it running on macOS Catalina, is it stable? Not sure if I should upgrade to Catalina just yet...

Runs nicely for me on Catalina.
Keep in mind Catalina is 64 bits only now, so you might not be able to use your other programs.

That's good to hear! Haven't thought about the 64 bits only, I'll have to check all my programs to be sure. Thanks for the tip.👌🏼
