Howdy,

chuck 1.3.2.0 + miniAudicle 1.3.0 have been released:

http://chuck.stanford.edu/release/

Our first release in a year is an exciting one. In anticipation of a number of ChucK-based computer music education initiatives (the forthcoming book "Programming for Musicians and Digital Artists" and Coursera course of the same name), we have added a number of conspicuously absent features and libraries, alongside cleaning up a large number of

The most significant change is to formally release chuck as an installer package on Mac OS X and Windows platforms. These installer packages include chuck, miniAudicle, related example files, and the standard set of chugins. (Separate installation of these components is possible but discouraged and not necessarily supported.) Linux, for the time being, is still released as separate source distributions.

SerialIO will allow ChucK programmers to easily interact with serial-based hardware devices such as Arduino. A number of string processing utilities have been added. Furthermore, the clear.vm command will enable more dynamic on-the-fly development with public classes.

In miniAudicle, the underlying application core on Windows/Linux has been completely rewritten in Qt, greatly improving stability and overall experience. A number of other features and improvements have been added.

Special thanks to Ajay Kapur, Kassen, Mark Morris, Bruce Lott, Fernando Lopez-Lezcano, and Romain Michon.

Best regards,
Spencer, Ge, and the ChucK team.

replace characters of string at pos with str
- .replace(int pos, int len, string str)
replace len characters of string with str, starting at pos
- .find(int ch)
search for character ch in string, return index of first instance
- .find(int ch, int pos)
search for character ch in string, return index of first instance
at or after index pos
- .find(string str)

- (added) MidiFileIn class
Class for parsing + handling MIDI input from a file.
See examples/midi/playmidi.ck for example usage.
- .open(string filename)
Open file at specified path

- (added) SerialIO class (extends IO)
Class for communicating with serial devices, e.g Arduino.
See examples/serial/ for example usage.
- .list() (static)
return array of strings corresponding
to available serial IO devices
- .open(int i, int baud, int mode)
open device with index i. baud can be a constant specifying
which standard serial baud rate is used (e.g.

SerialIO.BINARY to specify ASCII or binary interpretation
of serial data.
- .onLine()

for 1 newline-terminated string to arrive from the serial
device.

matches[0] is the entire matched pattern, matches[1] is the first
sub-pattern (if any), and so on.
- RegEx.replace(string pat, string repl, string str)
Replace the first instance of pat in str with repl, returning the
result.
- RegEx.replaceAll(string pat, string repl, string str)
Replace all instances of pat in str with repl, returning the
result.
- (fixed) --adc:<N> now works as expected

2 (playhead follows input, non-normalized/rectified)
affects examples/special/LiSa-track*.ck
- (fixed) LiSa interpolation bug
- (fixed) .clear() function of arrays properly removes all items of the array
- (fixed) != properly handles comparison between a string and literal null
- (fixed) multichannel refcounting bug

Interesting. Possible interfacing with arduino? Might have to check out the new version. Hope it works on WinXP.

Thanks for posting the news.
