nashNET has updated reViSiT to v1.4.2, both Standard and Professional Editions. Among several minor changes, the two main developments are:
- New Link Windows feature: This feature anchors the reViSiT editor window to the reViSiT toolbar, so that the two reViSiT windows no longer feel divorced from each other. This is designed to address the interaction issues arising from the dual-window UI (which is required to ensure keyboard support) and should make the whole user experience a little more cohesive. The setting, which is saved with the Preferences (F12), is on by default, but can be toggled using the 2nd button in the top-right control box of the editor window.
- Significant performance improvements: Using SIMD extensions on SSE-compatible processors, audio performance has been improved by up to 80%. Basically, these optimisations allow certain parts of audio processing to do up to 4 things at once, without requiring extra threading or multi-core processing. SSE is supported on Pentium III and later processors, so reViSiT's requirements haven't changed - and, indeed, you should now get more mileage from your old laptops and netbooks.
