It’s been a while since a new experimental update as we have been working on substantial changes that took some time.
First of note, there are a number of important compatibility issues which might require you to adjust your projects. These are always difficult choices to make but we feel they should be done now to improve the software for the long term. Please check the Backwards Compatibility section in the Release Notes.
Secondly, a rather significant update was made to the parameter dialog user interface. Previously some parameters were a long list of parameters when multiple copies of that parameter existed. These now start out with just one parameter and you can Add or Remove duplicate parameters when needed. Please let us know if you discover any bugs when loading your older files into this build.
Lastly a major change for macOS is the minimum requirement has been upped to 10.12 Sierra. Earlier versions of macOS will not be able to run TouchDesigner anymore.
