version 0.6.1 (head):

  • now compiling GridFlow as C++ (replacing C)
  • now you can use Ruby 1.7, which is faster
    note: if you do so, make sure your version is dated 2002
  • new objects: rubyprint, printargs, @print, @scan, @inner
  • new format: apple quicktime (using libquicktime.so)
  • @in gzip support (example: “open ppm gzfile teapot.ppm.gz”)
    also works with targa and grid
  • BitPacking now supports 1 to 4 channels instead of just 3
  • using mkmf.rb makefile generation; some MSWindows support thru Cygwin
  • added geiger counter simulator in [rtmetro]
  • libruby.so is only needed when using GridFlow through jMax
  • now can do grid literals in @ and @outer, like [@ + {0 1}]
  • syntax of @redim,@import changed from [@redim 2 3] to [@redim {2 3}]
  • “3 3 # 1 0 0 1” into inlet does automatic @redim, for all objects
  • grid literals accept {2 3 # 1 4 5} as an implicit [@redim {2 3}]
  • objects rewritten in Ruby language: @in, @out
  • updated samples, templates, documentation.
  • fixed bugs

could you tell us a little more about what GridFlow is, and what it is
good for? what is its intended purpose?

thanks,
tom
