Generally loving v2.0. A few questions.

I notice 'Replaced "Set Window Properties" (list) ports with "Set Window Description" (single-value) ports". I assume this means one just daisy chains the various descriptions? Wondering what the motivation was for changing from a list?

When looking at the nodes, some have "2" at the end of the name. Interested in what this means, or should I say, the implications? Are the ones with "2" not compatible with version 1.2.8?

And of course, is there an ETA for version 2.0 proper?

Replaced "Set Window Properties" (list) ports with "Set Window Description" (single-value) ports

The most important part of this change was to go from no window-related input ports to a "window description" input port. Our hope (and we'll see if actual usage bears this out) was that this would make it clearer what the node was acting on. And you're right, the idea is to daisy-chain the nodes.

When looking at the nodes, some have "2" at the end of the name.

It's just how we've done versioning and updates, not yet having implemented a fancier system. The "2" isn't related to Vuo 2.0 — some nodes got their "2" before then — it just means that the original version of the node was deprecated and now there's a new one.

is there an ETA for version 2.0 proper?

Current estimate is 2.0.0-beta4 in December and 2.0.0 proper in January.
