CLAM 1.1, The `More eye-candy, please' release.

After a very intense development months since the last 1.0 release,
the CLAM crew is glad to announce that CLAM 1.1 is ready to
[1]download. It comes with many new features and code clean up.
Most
important improvements are found in the Visual Prototyping
front: new
3D-looking widgets, new data viewers and control surface; and a
simplified way to bind controls between the user interface and the
processing network.

This release has been cooked-up under the umbrella of the
Interactive
Technology Group at the UPF lead by Josep Blat. So we thank their
support! It also features the work from contributors such as Zach
Welch; as well as the first patches from [2]Google Summer of Code
program --for example LADSPA and FAUST support and some work on
Annotator widgets.

A summarized list of changes follows. See also the [3]CHANGES files
for details. New audio related widgets were added to be used on the
NetworkEditor and the Prototyper. Such widgets include data
views such
as the BarGraph which can display LPC's, MFCC's. Nice control
widgets
were also added. The ControlSurface, for instance, to control two
scalar parameters by moving a point. Some widgets were gathered
from
the LAC community, such as [4]PkSampler [5]PovRay generated
widgets,
and nice knobs we enhanced from [6]QSynth and [7]Rosegarden.
Thanks to
the developers of those projects for making them GPL and being so
supportive while integrating them in CLAM. With all those widgets,
users now can visually build more appealing applications such
as the
new examples we include with Prototyper: A real-time gender
change, or
real-time spectral effects.

The TonalAnalysis (Chord extraction) now takes advantage of fftw3
performing 4 times faster! The KeySpace visualization was also
optimized so now tonal analysis runs even on very slow computers.

NetworkEditor and Prototyper usability have been enhanced. They
exploit the new in-control bounds parameters to automatically
set up
bounded control senders widgets. Also, NetworkEditor have proper
multi-processing selection features.

On different fronts, the code-base has been reduced by getting
rid of
Fltk and Qt3 modules since we are now focusing on Qt4, and the
documentation have been restructured and now it offers new
programming
how-tos.

The CLAM team
