0.9.0 is almost ready! This version has a lot of new features, we are preparing a blog post explaining the most important.
As with every release lately, before the final version, we put out a Release Candidate for public testing.
It would be great if people could download the packages for the platforms they use and see if they notice any issues.
Also since 0.9.0 we have support for exporting OF applications to run on the web. If you use any platform with support for makefiles (right now linux, osx and mingw) you can install Emscripten and compile any OF application to run on the web calling:
from the project directory in a terminal. @ReginaFlores wrote a post a while ago on how to install and use OF with Emscripten in osx: http://www.reginafloresmir.com/blog/2015/5/14/openframeworks-on-the-line
Another change in the supported platforms is that we are dropping support for Codeblocks under windows. The recommended IDE is now Visual Studio and the mingw package now provides only makefiles that will run under msys2.
We’ll put new install guides for both Emscripten and Msys2 in the web soon.
It would be really helpful, if you could try running existing projects with 0.9.0 RC1 to see if issues arise but 0.9.0 is a major version change and as such there’s some breaking changes so testing old projects will likely require some changes in your code. Feel free to ask in this same thread if you find any problem migrating old projects.
If you find any other problem in the release please open an issue in the gihub issue tracker.
There will be another Release Candidate next week.
Then hopefully a public release a few days later.
Thank you for helping test the 0.9.0 release!
