We have finally released a new version of Elios, the Entertainment LIghting Open source Software. Two years have passed since the first release, which has been downloaded more than a thousand times. We never expected so many downloads, this is really cool !

During these two years, we have been sporadically working on Elios. Here are the new features that we have implemented:

  • Cues management: save and restore your DMX array states ;
  • Input and output DMX array view: see what has been sent and received ;
  • Full-screen mode: stay focused on your lights ;
  • Automatic search for updates: get a notification when a new version of Elios is available.

We have also made a few changes on the existing tabs to make the application easier to use.

Because Elios is a Java application based on the Artnet protocol, Elios is still available on any platform supporting Java (Windows, Linux, Mac OS, ...).

Can't wait for downloading and testing those new features ? We provide both a Windows installer and universal installer. Note that downloads are now shared via DropBox because of the recent deprecation of the Download Tab of GitHub.

Full information can be found on the Elios Github project including issues addressed by this version (Elios 0.2) and the features we plan to implement in Elios 0.3.

Feel free to provide your feedback about what you have found useful or not in this version and what you want to see in the next one as well.
