VCS 1.13.3 released

The latest version of VCS is available to download. It's been a good while since the last release, but there aren't a lot of changes this time around, apart from the usual bugfixes there's better handling of errors and unsupported files. The most important bug fixed is obviously the one I already previewed some days […]

There's a couple more bugfixes and minor changes, and hopefully not much breakage. This issue has been there for months (first pointed out, together with the fix, by […]

Unofficial Ruby version of VCS

For anyone interested, Thomas has contacted me to let me know he wrote a "Video Contact Sheet Ruby" which reuses part of VCS' code and outputs contact sheets in the same style. Being written in Ruby, its code will be less of a mess and, even more interestingly, it can run on Windows with less […]

VCS 1.13.2 released

Next release (1.13.3) announcement A new update of VCS with a couple bugfixes is available to download. Once again, if you had problems with the previous versions there's nothing new.

Features to be removed from VCS

There's some features in vcs I plan to remove to ease working on it's absurdly big code. I haven't seen them used in the wild except long ago, plus in my samples and manuals by others. I'm calling for your opinion, however, to know for sure if I should actually remove them or not. Use […]

VCS 1.12.3 released

I haven't updated VCS in a while and somehow managed to keep this update ready but unreleased for months, so today I decided it was about time to get rid of it and be free to work on 1.13 😛 This is a minor update with a couple bugfixes, but most importantly, it marks the […]

VCS 1.12.2 released

Another minor update, although the last few versions have contained a really stupid bug that prevented the temporary files from being removed (leading to a lot of stale, possibly big, files), so upgrading is highly recommended. Thanks to Jason Tackaberry for pointing the bug. Note though I'm still on holidays so this is a quick […]

VCS 1.12.1 released

A very small update this time. It's only been delayed by real life stuff. Only worth mentioning: Workaround for cases in which GAWK uses comma as decimal separator. Many European languages use commas but only a few versions of GAWK do actually print them (and newer versions don't anymore). People encountering this bug will have […]
