Over the last month, we've been planning the upcoming Vuo 1.3 release, and we made a few improvements to Vuo 1.2:
- In the
Fetch RSS Items node, added support for parsing more data: (Thanks to Eurotrash for requesting this.)
- images inside the HTML
- CDATA titles/descriptions
- In the
Make Audio Wave node, added
Set Phase port (and "Synchronize Oscillators" example composition) (Thanks to alexmitchellmus for requesting this.)
- Fixed a crash when updating
Make Text Layer faster than the display refresh rate (Thanks to Magneson for reporting this.)
- Renamed the
Calculate Elapsed Time node to
Subtract Times (Thanks to lov for suggesting this.)
Vuo 1.2's biggest new feature is subcompositions: the ability to turn a composition into a reusable node in your Node Library.
This release also makes all-around performance improvements, with large compositions taking less time to start up after you've hit the Run button and with complex graphics compositions running more smoothly. And this release adds numerous new nodes, including nodes for beat detection, OSC sending, USB HID, and dates/times.
