We’ve just finished pushing our latest update to the Concerto 2 beta, “0.3.2.EchoInchworm”. In the two weeks since our last release we’ve been busy addressing a handful of feature requests and bugs reported since the last release. You can find our installation to get started in our Github wiki.
Among the notable changes you’ll find support for legacy (V1) screen urls. Concerto 2 correctly responds to urls like http://concerto/?mac=00:aa:bb just like Concerto 1 did. You should now be able to test out Concerto 2 without updating the URL on your existing clients.
We also added a new <iframe> content type. If you need to display a remote web page or dashboard, you can create a piece of content which will use an iframe to display the url on a screen.
This release also includes some speed improvements to content browsing and bug fixes to template importing (aka it works now, unlike the last release).
Almost as exciting as all of those changes is the updated demo system. Head on over to http://nightly.concerto-signage.org and check out this Concerto 2 release running on Heroku. If you haven’t taken the plunge yet, the demo’s worth checking out to see what Concerto 2 is all about!
