This first beta is essentially feature complete for the 0.1 release. There’s a new set of demo applications, a few new externals and the usual load of bug fixes, including some significant fixes for Linux. The complete changelog is available here. Download it, check out the new examples and demo applications, join the user group and get started making something of your own.

The new demo applications include a MIDI sequencer, an Oscillator, controlling Quicktime playback, and an interesting application that lets you play the data in a web page like an instrument.

Exciting stuff, even more so now that you can now have a go at Lily yourself!

  • This is beyond cool. I’ve been looking for the best way to mash up the web with music – I’ve looked at Pure Data, Processing, and a few others, and now seemingly the perfect app has dropped out of the sky. Magnificent. Of course I say this without having tried it – maybe it’s buggy as hell – but the demo videos show that it actually works. Wow.
