RaySession 0.7.1 released

Post by houston4444 »


for those who don't know it, RaySession is another one audio session manager. To do that, It uses the API of Non Session Manager.
written in Python3 with Qt5.

Because I didn't take time to post here at 0.7.0 release, you will find below the changelog since 0.6.0

New features:
  • New Option (activated by default): provide bookmark (shortcut) of the session folder for gtk2, gtk3, qt4, qt5, fltk and kde5 file pickers.
  • New Option: Desktops Memory (requires wmctrl). If activated, clients windows will be moved to the given desktop when session is ready, or when a client is ready. It may not works depending on your D.E.
  • Edit executable and arguments in client properties window. Arguments are supposed to be not supported by NSM. Sometimes it works and it can be useful.
  • command line option -s to load session at startup
  • ray-proxy: new option "wait window for reply" (requires wmctrl)
  • sooperlooper_nsm: option to pause and trig with jack_transport events (play/pause)
Bug Fixes:
  • Fix non removed stopped clients at session close.
  • Now send hide_optional_gui to client only once "open" has been sent. This can now makes some window flashes but it did make crash some softwares as Patroneo and Fluajho.
New Templates:
  • new factory templates for ADLplug, Petri-Foo, Shuriken, Sequencer64, Patroneo, Fluajho and SooperLooper +Transport
