We have two news for You.
First, Mapio has been updated to version 2.2.9.
Second, very soon will be available Mapio 2.3 Beta. These are some of the new features: synchronized video playback local and across multiple machines in a network; Customized Keyboard and MIDI control; Snapshots of mapping configuration; Audio files support; Free-form sensor based on lines and bezier curves (for pixel-mapping); Mixer with crossfader; NDI support; Kinect 2 support.
At the moment, will be available Windows version only. There is a desire at all stop supporting macOS platform.Unfortunately, we do not have enough resources to provide proper quality on both platforms. What do you think? Please vote here, it will help us make the right decision.
-removed support for hardware acceleration of DXV codec.

*updated Qt to 5.6.2
*updated Decklink SDK to 10.7
After a long (or, rather, far too long) period of beta testing, we are happy to introduce you our new 2.3.0 release. It contains a bunch of new features, important changes, and improvements, so we´d better name it the new major 3.0 version. However, we value our users. Especially as for the 3.0 version we have planned even more awesome changes. That’s why this is the 2.3.0 version.
Crucially, this release includes full documentation for the software both in English and in Russian. It has so badly lacked it since the first releases!
Unfortunately, the new version is released for Windows platform only. We had to focus on one platform to be able to provide the highest quality product. Furthermore, the news on Apple’s professional hardware haven’t been optimistic in recent years, and this became an extra push to stop supporting macOS platform (probably, temporarily).
Before long we are going to share several video clips to conveniently show you all the new features. Stay tuned!
Highlights of the 2.3.0 version:
+scheduler feature and SMPTE support [PRO]
+support multi-select and RGB level adjust for COLOR tool
+support of the groups in PixelMapping.
+support System hot keys.
