it is out!
as promised, we released vvvv gamma into the wild. not exactly the full 1.0 release we had hoped for, but at least as a preview that you can download and testdrive. we’re eagerly awaiting your feedback and bugreports in the dedicated gamma forum and are regularly updating the download link in the announcement post with the latest preview release.
one of the freaky new features recently introduced in vl are input and output pin-groups. when previously the usage of dynamic pin-groups required writing c# code, it is now a breeze to add them to your own nodes with just a few clicks.
and a release candidate is up for our computer vision library VL.OpenCV, which is now using latest OpenCV 4 and comes with a lot of howto patches that you can conveniently access via the help browser. note that when using gamma, VL.OpenCV is already included, no need for a separate nuget-install!
next steps? polishing gamma to a proper 1.0 release by holding on to our roadmap.
