Hi forum readers,
This is a quick information about the current state of this project.
Those who have followed the development, and started to use or test om7-beta in the past months, can now hopefully carry out a good part of their computer-assisted composition work with it. The new environment also introduced features and concepts, opening up to new territories for experimentation in computer-assisted composition. It drifted quite away from OM6 and previous OpenMusic versions, sometimes also bringing up a few compatibility issues.
For these different reasons, since its inception the project was developed independently from the main OpenMusic branch, using different successive code-names (o7/om7-beta…). From now on the code name becomes om# (om-sharp).
You will find relevant information on this page:
…while the OpenMusic main track pages and resources remain here.
The version 1 of newly-renamed om-sharp was just uploaded for Mac on the project downloads page. Previous versions (also for Windows/Linux) are still listed on that same page. A forum group/category where this and other previous posts will be moved, will also be created and renamed accordingly.
