This release is a fairly major one, adding many new features and bug fixes. It incorporates the features that were being tested in the previous “experimental widgets” partial releases (which are no longer available), and adds several new capabilities.

  • NETLabToolkit_v3_2_1_mac – You MUST set the Mac Hub app to “Open in 32bit mode” – Select application, GET INFO (command-I), check “Open in 32bit mode” – this version also requires OS X version 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and will not run correctly on 10.5 (if you have 10.5, use version 3.09 with Arduino 16′s version of Firmata).
  • NETLabToolkit_v3_2_1_win – For the Hub to work, you must have Java installed.

Release Overview:

  • NEW – Combine widget that can have up to four inputs and combines them into a single output
  • NEW – MotionTrack widget that uses a camera as an input and outputs X,Y positions based on motion captured by the camera
  • NEW – ServoOut now supports the Arduino, and a bug was fixed so that fractional numbers will now work (the fractional part is now ignored)
  • NEW – SlideShow widget that creates a timed sequence of images – multiple SlideShow widgets can be used in the same application.
  • NEW – AnalogInDigitalInAnalogOutDigitalOut now all support the new NETLab Toolkit communication system called HubFeed. HubFeed permits any computer (and in the future phones and tablets) to send to or receive values from any Hub on the network.
  • IMPROVED – The Hub is now more reliable in serial communications. In addition, several bugs are fixed including problems with multiple outputs to digitalOuts, using more than one remote XBee, and problems disconnecting from the Arduino. The Hub also has a new plug-in architecture.
  • IMPROVED – SoundControl has been significantly revised to separate the function of triggering the play start/stop of the sound from controlling the volume of the sound (and it is now possible to control the pan position with a separate input). There are also new options for allowing a sound to play all the way through once triggered, even if the trigger input falls below the threshold. Lastly, there is now a code interface to change volume, change pan, and trigger the sound.
  • IMPROVED – VideoControl has also been significantly revised with a similar approach to the the SoundControl widget
  • IMPROVED – The Insert widget has a new code interface for log recording/playback as well as a loop option for log playback.
  • IMPROVED – AnalogIn adds an easing option, DigitalOut has a code interface, and many other widgets have smaller changes and improvement.

New Features for the 3.1 series

  • New BlinkMOut widget allows control of the ThingM BlinkM family of smart RGB LEDs. Requires the use of the LinkM USB -> I2C adapter.
  • XBee digital out available via the DigitalOut widget. A digital port on a remote XBee can now be turned on and off
  • OSC communication is now supported in AnalogInDigitalInAnalogOutDigitalOut, enabling communication with applications such as OSCemote (iPhone app), MAX/MSPPuredata (pd), Resolume, VDMX, GrandVJ, Modul8, and Osculator(which works with the Wii Controller).
  • New Envelope widget processes its input so that its output ramps up at the beginning of a specified range and ramps down at the end of the specified range. Commonly used with the SoundControl widget, it enables several sounds to play at different ranges of a sensor input. This functionality used to be in the SoundControl, AnalogOut and DMXOut widgets, and was removed to simplify them.
  • New Hub that introduces a new open plug-in architecture that allows third party developers to create plug-ins to support new hardware or software interfaces. The new hub is also fully compatible with Firmata 2.1 and the latest releases of the Arduino software and hardware. Revised documentation is in progress…

Release Notes

  • VideoControl has new code interface to allow code control of play, pause, and filename of video to be played. More info on the VideoControl page.
  • Counter has a new code interface to set the current count in the out. This allows code to reset the count to zero or any other number in within the min/max range. More info on the Counter page.
  • IfThenElse now has the option to wait for a period of time before outputing the TRUE value. The waitTime is set in the Parameters so that only when the input value is in the TRUE range for the full waitTime, will the widget output the TRUE value. As soon as the input value is in range, TRUE will blink until the waitTime has been reached. More info on the IfThenElse page.

Older release notes

  • 3.1.6 improves OSC capabilities in AnalogIn/DigitalIn by allowing user to select which OSC argument to listen to (e.g. to allow access to Y and Z parts of OSCemote /acceleration/xyz x y z). Also, in AnalogIn, you can now make use of negative values coming from OSC, such as the OSCemote acclerometer data – to do this, set the “ceiling” value to -1023. See AnalogIn for more info.
  • All widgets with the suffix Input or Output have been renamed with a shorter In or Out. E.g. AnalogInput is now called AnalogIn
  • An installer for the Flash widgets is now included in the release – double click on the the file (e.g. NETLabFlashWidgets_3_1_5.mxp)  to automatically install the widgets rather than moving the files into the Flash components directory.
  • The Hub application makes a quick connection to the NETLabToolkit.org website when it starts up. This will help us track the number of people using the toolkit, which will help us with funding the continued development of it.
  • Compatibility has been improved with Flash CS5 and the new Arduino UNO board.
  • This version of the Hub does not run on Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) – You must upgrade to 10.6 (Snow Leopard) or use the Hub from version 3.0.9

  • NETLabToolkit_v3_1_4_Mac Beta release, adds back XBee and XBee digital out, adds LinkM/BlinkM support
  • NETLabToolkit_v3_1_0_Win Alpha release, missing XBee, does not have all features of 3.1.4 (you can combine the widgets of the Mac 3.1.4 with the Hub of 3.1.0 if you need to)

Release Notes: The releases of 3.1 are rapidly evolving and may have bugs. 3.1.4 is nearly stability, but is stillmissing OSC related functions such as MIDI/DMX/Make/OSC. It also does not currently run on MacOS 10.5. 3.1 adds full support for current versions of Arduino/Firmata, as well as support for the BlinkM, and digital out on the XBee.

If you need any of the functionality of the Hub from version 3.0.9 – e.g. support for MacOS 10.5 or MIDI/DMX/Make/OSC support, it is possible to combine the widgets from 3.1.4 with the older 3.0.9 Hub.

  1. New version of the Hub
    1. NOTE: On the MAC, you may have to do a GET INFO on the Hub application (command-I) and check the “Open in 32-Bit Mode” checkbox for the Hub to work correctly.
    2. Fully supports and requires Arduino 18+/Firmata 2.1+, fixes problems with AnalogOutput not working, DigitalInput being slow
    3. Implements new Plug-In API – Beta Docs at the bottom of the Hub Page
    4. Does not yet include support for OSC/Make (coming soon).
    5. Supports LinkM/BlinkM
    6. New Pipe protocol – allows for any client to become a data source and any other client to listen to this data source. This feature is not yet implemented in the Flash widgets, but will be in a future release. It will also enable future iOS/Android widgets to provide data to a client running on the computer. E.g. touches on the iPhone could be received by a Flash widget, or clicks on a computer screen could be received by an iPhone.
    7. PC version of Hub now is an .EXE file rather than a .BAT file – makes it easier to run this Java application in Windows
  2. AnalogOut(didn’t work) and DigitalIn (slow performance) widget bugs work properly now with Arduino
  3. New BlinkMOut widget allows control of the ThingM BlinkM family of smart RGB LEDs. Requires the use of the LinkM USB -> I2C adapter.
  4. Fixes bug in AnalogIn widget where the IN and OUT text displays would disappear
  5. All widgets that used to have “Output” or “Input” in their names are now “Out” and “In”
  6. DigitalOut now supports the XBee, so that a digital port on a remote XBee can be turned on and off
  7. The default serial port has been changed from “usbserial*” to “usb*”. This accommodates the new UNO Arduino board which has a different name on the Mac.
  8. Fixes a bug introduced in 3.1.0 where if there are multiple widgets connected, dis-connecting one widget would disconnect all of them (and sometimes cause a crash).
  9. Requires StandardFirmata version 2.1 loaded onto the Arduino, from Arduino release 18 0r later
Known Issues
  1. Does not include OSC/Make/MIDI/DMX support – coming soon. If you need this functionality, please use the, 3.09 release below.
  2. The Insert widget record/play buttons flash in the Flash authoring environment – it works fine otherwise
Contents
  1. Flash Widgets: 3.1.0 (updated)
  2. Hub: 2010_10_14 (updated)
  3. MediaControl: 1.0 (no change)

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
Release Notes
  1. Fixes a bug where in Flash CS5, the widget component parameters were not visible. Special thanks to the F9 For Actions website for showing the solution to this strange Adobe bug:http://f9foractions.tumblr.com/ in their August 4th entry.
  2. In Flash CS5, the widget component parameters are in a new palette. Adobe moved moved them from the Component Inspector to the Property Inspector.
  3. The default Controller is now Arduino, was Make
  4. Removed XBee from AnalogOutput and DigitalOutput – output to the XBee has never been implemented, but we hope to this fall
  5. Changed a range of widget parameters from “yes” or “no” to a CheckBox (true/false). All widgets: invisible; SoundControl: loopSound, triggerSound; VideoControl: loopVideo
  6. Requires StandardFirmata loaded onto the Arduino, from Arduino release 18 0r later
Known Issues
  1. Due to changes in the Firmata and Arduino 18+ environments, the Hub does not correctly communicate with the Arduino for AnalogOutput (does not work) and DigitalInput (there’s initially a delay in responsiveness, goes away after a couple minutes). We hope to release a new version of the Hub that fixes this problem in the near future.

Download: MacWin

  • Arduino support now requires Firmata 2.1 which comes with the Arduino 18 software
  • Insert widget now has data logging features
  • Added IfThenElse widget
  • NETLab Toolkit All Widgets 3_08 Flash file to use with Flash CS5, due to problems with parameters not showing up for the widget components in CS5. Open this .fla file in Flash CS5 and copy the widgets into your project rather than dragging the widgets from the components menu.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
  • Added MultiTouch widget that works with Moto MultiTouch table.
Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Fixed bug in MidiOutputNote where ActionScript function calls to the widget for noteOn() and noteOff() did not work.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Fixed bug in Insert where widget would attach to wrong inputSource. Added item() function call to ListItems so actionscript code can get an item at a particular location in the list.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Adds new widget ListItems, which returns an item (in order, or randomly) from a list stored in a file – via a function or another widget. Also, new versions of VideoControl and SoundControl that get a new video/audio filename from a ListItems widget each playPause restart.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Made smoothing in AnalogInput & DigitalInput better – previously, the values might get stuck in the wroing place due to the Hub not transmitting values if they were the same from the Arduino. This meant the smoother buffer would not update, even though values from the Arduino had stablized. So the widget now pretends values of the last input are continuing to come in if smoothing is enabled, and this flushes the buffer and it settles on the most recent stable value.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

Fixed bug introduced in Oct 22 release. Baud rates were being set incorrectly for Arduino.

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5
  • AnalogOutput and DigitalOutput did not work for Arduino on the PC due to not using the serial port name specified in the component parameters. This is fixed.
  • Added new ActionScript interface for the DmxOutput. E.g. myDmxInstance.sendDmx(outputValue, dmxChannel). This allows code to send arbitrary DMX values to any DMX channel with only a single DmxOutput widget on the Flash stage. The second parameter can be left off and the function call will default to the current value of the DmxChannel in the widget.
Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

  • Fixed bug in Hub that prevented DMX and Make Controller output widgets from working. This was a problem with OSC arguments being passed on from the Hub.
  • Added feature to Insert widget so that its output can now be set by simply assigning a new value to the outputValue variable of the widget instance. For example, if the Insert widget instance was named myInsert, you can set the output to feed another widget with the following code:
  • myInsert.outputValue = 125;
  • The old method using a function is also still available, for example:
  • myInsert.insertOutput(125);

Powered by Hackadelic Sliding Notes 1.6.5

  • Added a new Property for VideoControl that allows it to play/pause an .FLV file. If the incoming value from the input source is greater than 500, the video will play. Otherwise the video will pause. If the playPauseBehavior is set to “restart”, the video will start from the beginning when it goes into play mode. If it is set to “pause”, the video will resume from the paused position.
  • Changed the format of the .xml settings file to be plain text. Previously, this file had all the characters escaped. NOTE: If you use this new version of the Widgets, your old settings files may not work correctly and they will be converted to plain text will will not work with any older version of the widgets.
  • Fixed AnalogOutput and DigitalOutput so if one is used after the other they will still work on the Make Controller. Previously, the make controller might not accept commands after one mode had been used.
  • Fixed a bug in the HUB where it would return “address in use” errors when multiple connections were made.
  • Fixed the HUB so that it can accept OSC arguements with spaces and/or double quotes. If an argument has double quotes in it, use the curly braces to enclose the strings. E.g. /service/core/file-io/put {Philip van Allen, aka “Phil”}

Version 2.0 Alpha – July 11, 2008″

  • Added support for the Osculator. By running Osculator, you gain access to the Wiimote for its 3 axis accelerometer, switches, etc. Any other devices the Osculator supports (including any OSC signals) can also be forwarded to Flash.
  • Added support for the Xbee wireless sensors through the Make Controller.
  • Added support for DMX Lighting using the Enttec DMX USB Pro for lighting control. The interface to DMX is handled through a new NETLab Tools application called MediaControl.
  • SoundControl can now work with an external .mp3 file instead of using a file from the library.
  • Changed Midi support to use a new application called NETLab MediaControl instead of Occam (which seems to not be supported recently). Will add Midi input in the future. Also planned for MediaControl is multi-channel support, so that Flash can work with audio for 8 independent audio channels through external audio interfaces such as the Motu UltraLight.
  • Fixed spelling of “ceiling” in AnalogInput!
