    Mellite 2.18.0 is published now. It fixes a pixel smear bug on macOS and offers a new timeline action to clean up overlapping regions, as they would come out from a Wolkenpumpe session.

    Mellite 2.22.0 is published now. It has the first experimental version of the Patterns library included. See video tutorial on the updated website.

    Mellite 2.23.0 is published now. It incorporates the recent ScalaCollider updates with more unary/binary ops and camel-case operators (also in FScape and Patterns).

    Mellite 2.25.0 is published now. I incorporates two new interrelated systems: A DSL for expressions, similar to the existing Expr but you write an immutable graph like you do for patterns or procs. On top, a new abstraction Widget which allows you to build tiny user interfaces within a workspace. This will become especially useful in relation to FScape. A tutorial to be added soon—in the meantime, download and try the ImageSynth workspace.

    Mellite 2.29.1 is published now (artifacts updated at https://archive.org/details/Mellite). Main additions are the ability of patterns to function as main playable objects (see new tutorial at https://peertube.social/videos/watch/46e65cde-b459-487a-9884-0f00725e1980), and you can auto-run objects when starting Mellite from the terminal.

    Mellite 2.30.0 is published now. Not many changes user-facing, but everything is Scala 2.13.x savvy now (which becomes available around Q1 of 2019).

    Mellite 2.31.0 is published now. It adds a new command line interface for creating objects in a folder or attribute map, and basic functionality for the grapheme (break-point function) editor. Several bug fixes. A new tutorial is online as well.

    Mellite 2.32.0 is published now. It integrates the new new mini-IDE Dotterweide I have been developing since January. The editor is still in alpha/beta stage, but I found it useful enough to replace the previous one. It gets you in-editor error highlighting, improved auto-completion, and class and method look up via ctrl-alt-D. A tutorial on this is to follow.

    Mellite 2.33.0 is published now. It contains various improvements to FScape (mostly the addition of If Then Else; this caused a lot of changes to the Akka Stream layer, so expect this to have some bugs not found yet), as well as some improvements to building GUIs using the Widget object. This is an "intermediate" release, because I'm going to work more on FScape and Widget in the next two weeks, and another release is likely. We want to be able to transport many of FScape v1's modules to the new system now, so that's where the API additions and changes come in.

    Mellite 2.34.0 is published now. I have been mainly working on Widget and FScape. There is a workspace now you can download separately (check "Download Options > Show All") providing preliminary versions of FScape 1 modules translated to Mellite. See https://archive.org/details/Mellite

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.36.0 is published now. I have mainly worked on the 'widget' object, making it possible to already substitute a lot of the low-level programming one would normally do in the 'action' object. I shall add a tutorial about the new features :-/ But first focus is now on the presentation at ScalaDays.

    Mellite 2.36.2 is published now. It is mainly bug fixes compared to 2.36.0. The binary is still using Scala 2.12, but you can compile the project now against 2.13 if desired. There is a new tutorial online, introducing the Widget type: https://peertube.social/videos/watch/e10b8a0c-7d26-4bcc-a611-1175faa6287c

    Currently reviving my 'Negatum' project of genetically breeding synth defs. Hopefully this will go into mainline Mellite soon. Here is a beautiful sound coming out of this:

    val freq1 = Seq(1.0, 1.01).map(_ * 0.44575435)

    val freq3 = Seq(1.0, 1.01).map(_ * 0.44575435 * 1.0) // fundamental

    Mellite 2.39.0 is published now. It introduces Action and Control objects based on the Ex-DSL. The old low-level API action is now called ActionRaw (obsolete). There are tentative new binaries that bundle OpenJDK 11 on Linux and Windows: https://archive.org/details/Mellite

    Mellite 2.40.0 is published now. It continues the work on the Action and Control objects, used to define algorithmic couplings ("glue") between various objects in Mellite. In this version, particularly the passiving of parameters from a control object into a runner using runWith has been added, as well as a way to return values, e.g. from an FScape signal process, using MkLong, MkDouble etc. along with a Var passed into runWith from the invoking control object.

    This version also contains the necessary functionality to represent the first version in the ongoing effort of reimplementing and reconfiguring the installation piece Writing Machine / _wr_t_ng m_ch_n__ ; the binary upload thus contains a workspace with first tests for the new piece Writing (simultan) : https://archive.org/download/Mellite ; for background on this piece see https://www.researchcatalogue.net/view/665526/665527

    Mellite 2.41.0 is published now. It continues the work on the Action and Control objects, used to define algorithmic couplings ("glue") between various objects in Mellite. In this version, support for closures has been added, allowing to map and flatMap options and sequences of expressions. Some elements changed, such as the Act type in action and control programs, which means that programs that make use of it are not compatible with the way preliminary support had been in v2.40.0. A new tutorial will follow.

    There is a new bug in 2.41.0 related to the UI that prevents opening confluent workspaces; that's already fixed in 2.41.1-SNAPSHOT, so will become available soon. In the meantime stick to 2.40.0.

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.42.0 is published now. The main work was on the code editor, fixing bugs and making the keyboard shortcuts work correctly on macOS. Also desktop integration on macOS has been improved. Code editor font is now configurable.

    Happy New Year! I wrote a text tutorial on getting started in Mellite, implementing the so-called Paul Stretch extreme time stretching algorithm in FScape. See here for the tutorial and download link: https://www.sciss.de/mellite/tut_mellite_paulstretch.html

    Mellite 2.42.3 is published now. This version fixes issues with the Negatum object, as well as some UGen glitches for FScape
    Hanns Holger Rutz
    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.45.0 is published now. This version mostly improves on the control and act objects and their expression language. Since 2.44, we have also switched to using Scala 2.13 for the binary distribution.

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.46.0 is published now. This version mostly improves FScape and Ex/Control programs. The standalone version of the 'Impulse' program has been translated to a Mellite workspace, see peertube for a demonstration.

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.47.0 is published now. It contains the new Stream object which is a Pattern but with persistent state, and a number of improvements in Ex/Control programs and the passing of attributes when running objects. Also the new oscilloscope is integrated.

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.49.1 is published now. It contains basic support for the Raspberry Pi GPIO, shell processes and system properties (all relating to Ex/Control programs). Also --headless mode has been added recently to run installations without the UI coming up. There is a new video tutorial.

    @Sciss
    Mellite 2.50.0 is published now. It contains mostly library updates, and a command line option to automatically boot the audio server when in headless mode. New Ex/Control objects include Sys.Exit and Calendar (useful to schedule actions at fixed dates), the ability to list directory contents (File.List).
