Intel Mac Running OSX 10.7.1
The latest version of the Chameleon Beta 1.2.183 is now a 64 bit application. This has enabled us to use some poweful new memory management features which helps prevent random crashes.
We have also made a lot of other stability fixes during this transition to 64 bit.
Please thoroughly test this version before using it in a live environment as althought here are no visible changes, there are a lot of behind the scenes changes.
We are pleased to move our LED version from closed testing with a few individuals to a full public beta trial.
At the moment there is quite a limited fixture library (pretty much just the LED fixtures I have kicking around the warehouse), but we will be very happy to load any new fixtures up if you drop a quick email to support with the fixture manufacturer and name. If you could link to an online manual that would be very handy.
We have been working on adding support for LED colour changing fixtures into Chameleon. In the next couple of weeks we will starting closed user testing trial of the initial feature set. Read on if your interested in helping us. After this initial testing we will be releaing a public beta.
To start with we will be supporting simple LED colour changers with RGB and optionally a dimmer channel. Currently if your fixture has other attributes, such as an Amber channel or Macros etc, those features will not function yet.
We've just released a new, OS/X Mavericks (10.9) compatible, version of Chameleon (1.2.162). This version is backwards compatible to OSX 10.7. If you want to continue running the older version of Chameleon 10.2.157 we will be keeping it available on the website for a while yet.
We know many people choose Chameleon because they like its intuitive interface. We were also aware that the framework we have been using to develop the interface is looking a little tired these days. This left us with a challenge: how to upgrade the framework, and hence refresh the look of the interface, whilst still ensuring that Chameleon is as intuitive and easy to use as it has always been.
This is the challenge we have been working on this summer, and today we're pleased to announce the release of a new beta that includes the framework upgrade and an updated look and feel. You - our customers - will be the ultimate judges, but we think it's pretty cool.
