We’ve been chipping away steadily at the aleph firmware for literally years without an official release… It’s time for that release to finally happen!
sdcard-0.8.1.zip (777.1 KB)
the bad news is 0.8.x will likely be totally incompatible with every previous scene, but there might be some hope if you were running a fairly recent build of monome/dev
the good news is 0.8.x allows to do many more things with the aleph than 0.7.x . Because preset system is fixed and patch-editing is more advanced now, I hope that rebuilding old scenes with the new firmware will be much faster & more fun than with the ‘classic’ firmware.
There are a few known bugs with 0.8.1 (btw thanks @yann_coppier for all your great work testing, documenting & helping debug) therefore minor-version bugfix-only releases will continue as long as bugs keep surfacing… Having said that, the plan is no more scene-breaking changes in forseeable future.
We’ve updated the BEES documentation & it lives here at the moment https://github.com/monome/aleph/blob/dev/apps/bees/README-OP-DOCUMENTATION.md
