ControllerMate v4.9 Beta

October 15, 2014

Requires Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" or newer

This beta has been tested with OS X Yosemite Release Candidate 3. If that candidate becomes the release version of Yosemite, then this beta will become the release version of ControllerMate v4.9.

New since the September 30, 2014 Beta

  • Updated the built-in help book to include additions and changes in ControllerMate v4.9.
  • Modified the Live Activity Settings panel to allow multiple sources to be enabled or disabled without using the Option key.
  • Fixed a bug that could prevent multiple Axis, Button, and Hatswitch building blocks from being configured by dropping a building block onto the Inspector window.

General Changes

  • Added compatibility with Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
  • Added the ON/OFF Group building block to create a related set of ON/OFF values.
  • Added the MIDI Note Group building block that responds to a set of MIDI Note messages.
  • Added the Absolute Value building block to calculate absolute values.
  • Added the URL building block to open web locations.
  • The Button Group building block can now be configured by pressing a set of buttons on a device. OFF buttons may also now be included in groups.
  • The LED building block can now be configured to turn an LED on, turn an LED off, or do nothing when the building block turns ON and OFF.
  • Improved performance when importing large amounts of programming.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug that could cause a crash if performing an Undo command immediately after importing programming.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause ControllerMate to fail to write a file when exporting programming.

X-keys Too!

ControllerMate for X-keys v4.9 is also available as a Beta.

Why "Beta"?

A ControllerMate "Beta" means that all of the functions of the application have been implemented and have been tested in the range of Mac OS X  versions that it supports (currently Mac OS X  10.8 - 10.10). However, there is certain work that needs to be done before ControllerMate is released as a final product. In this case, ControllerMate is simply waiting to be tested with the final version of OS X Yosemite.

Focus Areas / Feedback

The most significant changes in ControllerMate v4.9 involve Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite compatibility and the newly added building blocks. Any misbehavior by ControllerMate would be helpful to hear about.

Feedback of any sort about ControllerMate v4.8 is definitely welcome in the forum or e-mail. Consistency with previous versions of ControllerMate and compatibility with devices are always important topics.
