I just want to take the time to wish you all a belated Happy Christmas, and an early Happy New Year
I’d also like to thank the Cabbage and Csound communities for all the support and help over the past year! Your questions, input, bug reports, feature requests, etc., contribute more to the development of Cabbage than you can ever imagine.
One last thing, I’m rather enjoying the holidays so I’ll be only picking low hanging fruit on the forum for the next week or so! There are a few issues that we take a bit longer to sort, namely those reported by @Retornz, @circuitdust, and @RZorn. I’ll get to these in the next week or so
In terms of Cabbage and 2024, I have a few things that I’m burning to get done. One is to replace the existing text editor with the VSCode editor component. I have started this and the initial results look promising. Here is a short, rather useless screencast of how that looks.
The other thing I can’t wait to complete is the webview component which will allow people to bypass the UI system in Cabbage entirely, and instead use a web based UI. This was a video I posted during the year that shows how this might work.
I’m about to start testing some new websocket opcodes written by @Andy.Fillebrown that should make the communication between the web-end and Cabbage a lot smoother and easier to manage than existing solutions. I have no plans to drop support for native widgets in case anyone is getting worried. This feature is only for those who want to have total and utter control of their UIs.
I’m sure there will be many more features and improvements in 2024. I look forward to sharing them with you.
