New Versioning Scheme
We have changed the version number scheme to semantic versioning, meaning Lampy version numbers will look like “x.y.z. (aabbcc32)”
X is the major version number which will be increased only when major changes are introduced (such as Multicell and the UI-Rewrite in v2).
Y is the minor version number which will be increased when features are added.
Z is the “Bugfix” portion of the version number which will be increased when the release only contains bugfixes or as we see fit.
The text in the brackets points us to a specific version of the code an update has been built with.
Known issues
• Fetch-mode indicator is missing
• Only one of each group can be added to a MagicSheet at the moment
• IP-Adress fields are not cleared when no cable is plugged in and DHCP is turned on
New Features
All-New and better-performing User Interface
• Multi-Touch support
• Multi-Cell Fixture support
o Fixture Items show Main. Sub UserID if more than one sub fixture exists for type
o Double-clicking on an instance selects/deselects all other instances of this fixture
• Long Press on an empty item records the item
• Long Press on Pool Items (Group, Preset, Fixture) and Playbacks opens a context menu
• Fixture Items always show Dimmer Value in Dimmer Bar
• If a Fixture only has Pan / Tilt but no other visualizable info, display Pan / Tilt visualization differently in Pool Item
• Sliders now display a tooltip with the slider value while being dragged
• Better support for external screens (no fixed resolution, better touch / hot-plug handling)
o You will most likely need to calibrate your touchscreens. You can use the Shift + Magic Wand buttons on the Frontpanel and keep them pressed for 2s to do so
• Magic Sheet editing is now done using a toolbar after switching the Magic Sheet View into edit mode using the magic-wand dialog
• Added a clock to the internal screen
• Added a Virtual Keyboard with switchable Layouts
o Double or long pressing on the shift button triggers caps-lock
• Added a new “Add Preset FX” Tab into the Add Effects dialog which makes it easier to create absolute effects using presets.

New CIE Color Picker
• Color conversion for up to 9 LED Colors
• Encoders in the color picker can now cycle between different color modes for encoders
• Emitter coordinates need to be set in the fixture library for the conversion to work perfectly, however, we have pre-defined values in case this information is missing. It is advised though to measure the brightness of each color and enter the values into the fixture library’s Color Mixing data (Color Mixing button in Library Editor).
• Color picker displays the biggest color space of selected fixtures as highlighted.
o If selected fixtures only have a color wheel, show the total color space spanned by filter colors as a highlight (given provided data in the library)
• Color picker shows points for individual fixture colors. These Points are limited by the individual fixture color spaces
• Color selection in the color picker applies the same color to all selected fixtures, regardless of LED composition (distributes to channels accordingly for max overall color intensity)
• Setting Colors using color picker encoders or faders always sets the target color in the color picker and follows the above color distribution. Individual color channel values can be set using the encoders in the Values table.

Fixture Library and Editor
• New Atlabase Multicell Library
• Added many new Attributes to Function Database
• Updated Encoder Mapping for these new Parameters
• Proportional Ranges: Proportional Ranges are used to compose a range of values into another range of values and may contain a prefix and suffix to display such, e.g. for Strobe Frequency
• All-new MultiCell Library Editor
• Add xyY editing for additive color mixing systems
• Added a confirmation dialog when selecting fixture types from the factory or user library when adding fixtures that would overwrite the fixture type in the show library
• Added a confirmation dialog if a fixture type in the destination library should be overwritten when transferring fixtures

• Playback Faders Dimmer Priority can now also be set to HTP
• Playbacks with only one cue can now be moved/copied to scenes and vice versa
• Cues can now be renumbered by double-clicking in the Cue # column
• Added Go-To Function to Cuelist View
• Changed cue list concept of "End of Cuelist" to work on both ends of a Chaser
• Template page can be disabled temporarily in Show Settings -> Ui Settings
• Shift + Master Go cycles through Playback Pages in forward order; Shift + Master Pause/Back in backwards order
• Clicking on a cue in the cue-list view while record is active now adds the option to insert a cue before the selected cue
• Master Fader can be assigned as Grandmaster in Show-Settings -> UI. Go and Pause/Back buttons control selected Cuelist when Grandmaster is selected as Fader Mode
• Update Cue dialog has the option to insert a cue before the selected cue
• Long Press on the Playback Page button will go to the previous page
• Added default Record Mode setting to Show Settings.
• Playbacks can be selected for the master fader in five different ways:
o Click Select in a cue list view after clicking on the Playback Item
o Click Select in the long press menu of the Playback Item
o Using the Button Action “Select” of a Playback
o Copying a Playback onto the Master Fader Item
o Moving a Playback onto the Master Fader Item

Virtual Dimmer and Virtual Strobe
• Implement Virtual Strobe
o Fixtures with a single dimmer (virtual or not-virtual) but no shutter channel can now also add a virtual strobe
o It enables both synchronized strobing, as well as random strobe
o Add Virtual Strobe to the library editor
• Changes to Virtual Dimmer
o Virtual Dimmer now also supports fixtures with HSI and CMY as well as CIE Luminance
o If a Fixture has multiple color mixing Systems, RGBxx is preferred for Virtual Dimmer over any of the others.

Changes in Behaviour
• Software / Library Update dialogs now force a reboot of the console.
o Dialogs display a popup indicating that the console will need to be shut down or restarted after the update and users are asked to save the show when clicking on "Install". They can still cancel at this point.
o Update Dialog can not be closed or skipped out of after the "Confirmation" Page
o Done Page shows "Shutdown" and "Reboot" buttons respectively.
o Some UI Updates to improve readability in Software and Library Update Dialogs
o Added a Countdown with a progress bar to restart automatically after the update is completed successfully (20 seconds)
• Previous / Next soft button behavior has been changed:
o Previous / Next cycle through "full" fixtures incl all instances
o Shift + Previous / Next cycles through instances
o Long Press on Previous selects all fixtures
o Long Press on Next selects even / odd

• Position/color attributes release before dimmer is released completely
• Move In Black starts FX even if a fixture is not yet dark
• Effects running in the wrong direction
• Copying Preset onto existing Preset does not properly update reference values that are being output
• Deleting Fixtures from a group could result in wrong selection states
• Preset loaded state gets lost when the preset is moved.
• Storing Selection into Effect should check if the effect parameter is supported by any fixture
• When deleting a Preset: Name, Icon, and User Color should be reset
• Performance: Fixture selection event is always emitted with server event, even if the selection does not change
• Group selection state was not updated when the group was moved while selected

• Keyboard Layout is now being restored properly after startup
• Fixed predefined FlyIn / FlyOut effects – Tilt was not in sync with the Dimmer
• Fixed an issue where the patch of certain fixtures changed after re-opening a show file (I.e. ADJ Mega Bar LED)
• MIDI Input Enabled State is not saved or loaded from the show file
• Elements recorded using “All for Selected” and “All Values” do not include programmer content
