This is a minor release of OBS Color Monitor.

Changes in this release are

  • waveform and histogram
    • Add an option to display YUV.
  • dock
    • Improved performance by transfering frame data from GPU at once for all scopes (vectorscope, waveform, histogram) in a dock.
      Due to this change, scale of each scope is removed.
    • Interleave to transfer frame data to reduce rendering time.
    • Added ability to choose different scenes and sources. Open properties for ROI and select Source.
    • Improve mouse interaction on ROI; drag to move or resize the region.
    • When opening the properties, the location of the right click selects the first tab.
  • Bug fixes
    • Fixed crashes at __gl_update_block_invoke on macOS.
    • Fixed alpha blending issue found when running on OBS Studio 26.0.
    • Fixed some other bugs and warnings.
    • macOS: Added a cmake option CMAKE_OSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.13 so that the plugin should work under macOS 10.13 or later.
