Good question! Keep in mind that 1.7 took us to over 97% memory usage, so 1.8 is mostly fulfilling a grab-bag of small feature requests, hammering on bugs, and integrating pull request contributions from other developers.rayultine wrote:chysn: what kind of excitement should we be getting excited for in hemisphere 1.8?
However, there are two significant features in 1.8:
(1) Support for the Northern Lights 2OC (Buchla-format) module. I'm getting lots of help with this from an actual Buchla user, on both the development and testing sides.
(2) A more tightly-integrated internal clocking system. You'll be able to call up the clock setup mode at any time by long-pressing the DOWN button. This replaces the category filtering system. Category filtering was a solution in search of a problem, I think, and having instant access to the clock will be much more useful.
Also, a bunch of scales that were removed from OC 3.4 (because of memory constraints) have been replaced.
I'm expecting the release to be near the end of April.
