Light-O-Rama version 3.10.12 released as an open beta

Recommended Posts

We have just released version 3.10.12 of the Light-O-Rama software suite as an open beta.

 

Before getting into how you can download the new version and what's new in it, here is some information about what we mean by "open beta":

 

What is beta software? Beta software is code that has been tested by the programmers who have written it and has received some internal testing by other members of the company.  The software is stable enough to be tested by a rather large group, but it is not software that is ready for general released.

 

Why an open beta? Over the last few months, we have received dozens of requests from people to join the beta testing group.  In the past, we have kept that group closed, and have always had a backlog of people wanting to take part.  To make management of the beta group simpler, we are going to open the beta to everyone.

 

Who should use beta software? Beta testing is not for everyone.  By nature, beta software will have more problems in it than generally released software.  Testing beta software allows a user to find out if an enhancement does what they need, and if not, provide suggestions on how to fix or improve the software.  Do NOT use the beta software if you are not ready to uncover bugs/problems with it.  People who volunteer to test beta software must report problems, but please do not complain that there are problems - problems are expected! When testing beta software, please make sure to save often so that if something crashes, you'll minimize your loss.

 

How can I report issues, make suggestions, or ask questions about the beta? There is a set of forums for the open beta, where you can report bugs or give other feedback, here:

Does my license cover this release? Please note that your license may or may not cover this version. To check, please go to the license retrieval page, and enter your email address (the one you purchased your license with).  An email should then be sent to you with information about your license. The "Summary" section will tell you whether or not your license covers the latest version of software. If it does not, you can either continue using the version that you currently use, or consider purchasing a license renewal in order to start using this new version.

 

What's new in this version? First, please note that this version is on top of beta versions 3.10.8 and 3.10.10, so if you haven't yet seen the release announcement for 3.10.8 or the one for 3.10.10, you might want to check them out for what's new since the most recent non-beta release.

 

In addition to the changes in beta 3.10.8 and beta 3.10.10, beta 3.10.12 has the following changes (see the help file's What's New page for more details):

  • Bug fix: Text and images sometimes would not clip properly when played to a visualization in SuperStar.
     
  • Bug fix: Some visualizations would not import properly in SuperStar.

How do I get this new version? The new version can be downloaded from:

Thanks for your help!
