NOTICE FOR MAC USERS: ckb-next 0.4.0 stores its data using a different backend. If you upgrade, your settings and profiles will be migrated. In case of a downgrade, any changes will not propagate to newer versions of the software.

Support for new devices:

  • K70 RGB MK.2 LP
  • M65 RGB Elite
  • M95 Legacy

Important bugfixes:

  • ST100 now works on macOS properly
  • Strafe RGB MK.2 logo is mapped to the right LEDs, and media buttons are positioned correctly
  • A buffer overflow causing the daemon to crash or hang has been fixed
  • quickinstall can now run correctly with multibyte characters in the path
  • Rename now works correctly in the Profile Manager context menu
  • Animations with no presets no longer get loaded to prevent crashes
  • K70 Lux is now marked correctly as monochrome
  • ckb-next can be built again with Qt 5.2
  • Save to hardware now gets disabled in the context menu for unsupported devices
  • Settings backend has been changed to ini for macOS, preventing silent configuration data corruption
  • The K55, the ST100 and the Polaris now have working default profiles
  • A few cases that may cause the GUI to crash have been found and fixed
  • Blank animation names are no longer allowed

New features:

  • GUI has gained a monochrome tray icon option (QSystemTrayIcon only)
  • Device brightness can be controlled by scrolling on the tray icon on Linux systems that support it (AppIndicator or KDE)
  • Profiles and modes can now be changed with the --profile and --mode arguments passed to the GUI binary
  • New Conway's Game of Life animation
  • New 'snake' animation
  • New 'pipe' animation, allowing the user to send rgb data from external applications
  • Music Visualizer (mviz) is now supported on macOS, and has been reworked to function correctly
  • A --version argument has been added to the daemon

Notes:

  • On Linux, the udev rule has been renamed and moved
  • On Linux, for builds with libappindicator, it can be force enabled/disabled by setting the CKB_NEXT_USE_APPINDICATOR environment variable
  • On Linux, libappindicator support is also enabled if the Qt platform theme is gtk2 (Useful for Unity on Ubuntu 19.04)
  • The restart command has been removed from the daemon
  • Threads are now named for easier debugging
  • Signal handler has been rewritten
  • A few unneeded packets are no longer being sent to M65 mice
  • Only Red channel data is being sent to monochrome devices

v0.3.2 (2018-10-07)

Full Changelog

Important news:

  • This version fixes a major bug for the Scimitar Pro, causing the daemon to not properly interface with the mouse. This could require manually reflashing the mouse firmware if a firmware update was performed with 0.3.1 or earlier.
  • An updater has been created to more quickly push bugfixes to users, especially for those on macOS.
  • There is a new Space Invaders-like minigame that can be played as an animation, thanks to @mvladimirovich.

Support for new devices:

  • Strafe RGB MK.2; by accidental omission from the previous release.
  • K66

Important bugfixes:

  • The Scimitar Pro now defaults to v2.xx endpoints
  • The DPI LED on mice now changes in sniper mode
  • The GUI will warn if uinput cannot be loaded on Linux
  • The "Save to Hardware" button on the Scimitar and Glaive has been greyed out due to a current lack of support
  • Thanks to the efforts of @Kedstar99, the codebase compiles with much fewer warnings
  • The daemon will retry talking to the Karabiner kext in case it runs before the kext is ready
  • Binding commands to wheels will now repeat properly
  • QuaZip is no longer required for daemon-only builds
  • KissFFT is now built as a static library
  • Symbolic links are now created in /dev/input/by-id for evdev users
  • Fixed a regression for devices using the legacy protocol
  • The forwards and backwards keys are now bound by default on Mac
  • Workaround for using the Polaris on macOS

Note for packagers:

  • If ckb-next is updated through a package management system, -DDISABLE_UPDATER=1 should be passed to CMake
