    I have made a major release of Nutcracker software.


    This release breaks all of your logins.


    New features
    1) Nutcracker is now architected for batch processing (Single button project builds here we come!)
    2) Changed the password hashing from 32 bytes to 60 bytes. This change will require you to reenter your password again (more below)
    3) New columns added to some tables to enable single strand effects
    4) Some fixes for local installs.
    5) New password change form




    So first, i have reset all of your passwords to "welcome".
    The first thing you need to do is change your password


    When you come to the login screen, you will see a new option for changing passwords

    Now we come to the password change screen


    [​IMG]


    1) Enter your current login
    2) Enter the temp password "welcome"
    3) Enter what you want your password to be, this can be the same as it was before
    4) Enter what you want your password to be a second time


    Submit and then click and go back to the login form.


    Please Note!!


    I am not done converting the effects to the new format.


    Here is what you can continue to develop with. BLUE = GOOD TO GO


    bars, butterfly, fire,garlands, spirals
    color_wash, gif, life,


    These are not ready to test so please do NOT post any messages about them. As the days go forward this pile will move up to the pile that us ready for test.


    RED = SEAN IS FALLING BEHIND
    chase, layer,meteors, pictures, single_strand,snowflakes,snowstorm,text,user_defined


    Please be understanding of any issues this week as this is a massive change.


    I expect all effects will be finished and moved from the RED pile into the BLUE pile by this friday.


    I will be having a Nutcracker Tutorial Tomorrow night, Thrus Sept 12, 7pm MST (Denver Time).
    we can discuss all of the changes that this encompassed then.


    thanks for your patience


    sean

    Once again Sean Thanks for your continued development in this great app it is appreciated and I look forward moving into my sequencing phase shortly once i finish building all my new elements.

    Shame your having the tutorials on the Thursday Nights, pretty much eliminates most Aussies due to work commitments.

    If your willing to do that then we should promote it for us Aussies so it will be worth your time, would hate to see you get up early for just a small handful of people.

    So I may create an attendance thread to try and generate a decent attendance so its worth your time.
