Salsaman just released  LiVES version 1.0.0-pre1. All features and APIs are now frozen for 1.0, only bug fixes will be made from now on until after the 1.0 release.

Release notes
* A bug in previous versions meant that sometimes when switching clips during playback, the clip switched to would play back at an incorrect speed. This bug has been fixed, but the incorrect speeds may remain after loading a clip set. To reset the speeds, use the menu option VJ -> Reset all playback speeds and positions.

Background and foreground generators can now be mixed in realtime. This can be done by mapping generators to two different effect keys. Then activate the first generator, activate a transition, and activate the second generator which will come on in the background.

Because of numerous bug fixes in this release, all users are advised to upgrade.
