After many iterations of Boblight Config Maker, I’ve decided to finally release v2 … keep in mind that I have the feeling it’s not quite finished yet, so it’s released as a beta, by request of many v1 users.
V2 has been rebuild complete from scratch, and (in my opinion) is not been quite perfect yet, but some will see benefit in this version as it adds a lot of new features.
Since building and maintaining this application is simply taking way too much time, this will, unfortunately, most likely be the last version as well. As with many free or open source projects, this project is taking just too much time, and unfortunately, I do have to make a living as well.
Note that for now the source will not be made public.
UPDATE: For Windows and MacOS X I have fixed several bugs, a new version (beta 3) is available.
About this release of Boblight Config Maker
I have posted this release separate from the original article intentionally, as I do not expect to post updates or support for this version. It is a beta version, which I originally did not intend to release, but some helpful folks and v1 users asked me to release it anyway, as it could be useful to some, and it covers some additional features not found in v1.
As mentioned before, this project has consumed way too much time, and unfortunately, this is not my daytime job. So for now this will be the last version, and bug fixes will most likely not be addressed. Feel free to post them though – others might benefit from it and if I find a great sponsor I might pick this project up again.
For Windows and MacOS X users, I’ve updated this version one more time fixing several bugs that have been reported.
The application is probably still far from perfect, but at least I hope that this way it becomes a little bit useful.
Some changes …
The start screen might look familiar, when comparing it to v1, but you’ll find some new features once you start working with it.

This version does come with a wizard which is intended to make your start easier.

The configuration options have been extended – more devices are now supported and one can even create templates for a given configuration, which can be reused at a later time. The configuration can be limited to basic settings, but also set to show all options (check the “Preferences” tab for more details).

Note that it’s not a bad idea to check out the “Information” tab, which tells more about you some of the basic steps.
