There's a new Lily beta available.
I'm happy to say this will be the last of the "private" betas- the first public beta should be ready for download on the site in November.
New stuff in this release: There's now a Examples folder in the download with sample code organized by topic- if you're new to Lily, this is a good place to start exploring. There's a new external named "svg" that provides an SVG based graphics API that's compatible with Processing. Documentation is still pretty sparse, but check out the SVG patch in the Graphics folder in the examples to get a feel for what it can do. There's a handful of other new externals that do useful/fun stuff- range mapping, unique random numbers, a socket listener, drag and drop, a xul tree widget, and an external that outputs a browser's http requests/responses.
Not new but improved: The "Save as app" and "Save as addon" functionality has been cleaned up and expanded- they're working now on Windows and I've added a dialog to allow users to enter metadata about the app/addon they're creating. In general, all things Windows are much improved from previous betas. Many sundry bug fixes.
Still busted/To be done: Linux compatibility- I've done about 5 minutes of testing on Ubuntu Dapper and Lily appears to work only if Firefox is installed in the user's home or if Firefox is run as root. Other tbds for the first public beta- More documentation. Bug fixes. New demos. Fix the site.
The complete changelog is here
If you've signed up to test Lily previously, you should be receiving an email tonight with the new download url. We're still looking for testers, so if you're interested please get in touch.
