Forthcoming: stability improvements and Artnet support

October 27th, 2011

We've wanted to add Art-Net support for a while now, as it's the second most popular feature request we get.

Thinking about how we'd develop it, we decided to decouple Chameleon's DMX output process and have it run it as a separate daemon, insulating the rest of the software from the output device and vice versa). This solves an issue where Chameleon crashes when the DMX interface is unplugged while it is running. We're still testing this internally but so far it looks pretty solid. We get a lot of feedback from people saying they like the stability of Chameleon: this should improve stability further still.

We'll be issuing a beta incorporating this stability update and Art-Net compatibility within the next couple of weeks.
