I've been using a several-months old version of juce, because I bumped into badly-broken Pro Tools automation in the Juce code that comprised the late 2014 tip code (I still don't know if that's fixed). But I've just grabbed the tip code and crashed into this new AudioProcessorParameter class. It may or may not provide some benefits, but it's going to take me quite some time to sort out. But it raises what I feel has been a real issue with Juce. And that's the haphazard way that it changes.
I'm sure I'm not alone among developers who must pay attention to all sorts of issues. This means that I can't visit the Juce forum every day to see what's going on. A major change like this parameter class can slip right by. When I try to bring things up to date, I find that there's often a very unwelcome period of changing things that worked just fine before. This can blow a schedule right out of the water.
I do appreciate how much effort goes into running a one-person company and I really hope that the new association with Roli can provide some relief. But I would really appreciate a newsletter whenever you feel a milestone has been reached. And I'd also love to see release notes that indicate what has changed and how we can bring existing code into compliance. Your license fee has been more than reasonable, but I've got to say I wouldn't mind an increase if it could help those of us who find Juce to be an important part of our business.
