Ok. I today opened the SR for Montage program and was informed of the update. This would be the newest release just put out vs what was available a week ago. After loaded, I clicked the SR help page site to find the newest version number, but it led to a dead link. (Did I say quirky?
Also, nothing mentioned anout the update in my quick search on the SR site.
Some Problems discussed in previous version.
1) moving SR created Library file to user intact
2) Not saving template settings
Hoping someone in the know can give me a heads up. Right now I'm doing a backnforth circle jerk thru the Mila's program to do so.
Skylife recently revamped their website so I can expect bad links. They've never had the best online presence. Chris from SR did at one point monitor this forum. Maybe he'll chime in. I wish there was a dedicated forum on Skylife (or somewhere) for discussing SR use, issues, and update announcements.
EDIT: Nope, the version history is not in the ZIP. I checked my past downloads of 0.6.1.0 and 0.6.3.0.
I do not know where this information is supposed to be accessed from.
My current version is 0.6.3.0. Although I still do not know where to find the version history online (it's been moved) - the update feature gives a summary. The latest currently is 0.6.4.0 and reports the following updates:
- feature: "Really quit?" on exit
- feature: save global audio out device/midi in device
- fixed: program change sends illegal MIDI messages
- fixed: loop marker visibility
- fixed: release samples crash
- fixed: program change offset bug
- fixed: estimation dialog change type bug
- fixed: auto-loop for all bug (do not touch selected sample)
- fixed: auto loop for all project bug
- fixed: play cursor display bug
- fixed: SR header graphics size bug
- fixed: splash screen text position
I used the check for update feature using 126.96.36.199. I did not see an error message. The information on 188.8.131.52 was within the application when the new version was detected and just before the option to download or cancel. There is a dialog box which shows the new features which I copied and pasted here. There should be a link which has the version information for all previous versions - but this link no longer seems to exist.
The version-history php hosted by authenticate.samplerobot.com results in a link which reports a 404 error. The Samplerobot team needs to either clean up the php to forward to a valid link or fix the link which is redirected to by adding the required content.
Joel, I know you've worked with the SR team before and may have better contact information than the rest of us have. Maybe you can serve as a "courier" for reporting SR issues such as this 404 error with the "Version History" feature in SR along with any problems you may be experiencing.
