It wasn't an easy task, so we've made sure to try allot of different directions. As you can see, some icons design worked others didn't.
Maybe the feathericons collection is in need of some awesome illuminati and skulls icons?
For those of you who always wanted to be more "inside" of your patch, we now offer the ability to have the renderer as a patch background.
Most of the menus in the editor got smaller, received animations here and there and also have been repositioned. You still find the main menu on the top, it moves to the right when opening the code-editor now. The configurable sidebar made way for a smaller version with all the important shortcuts. A new one is the icon bar on the lower right that lets you zoom in and out and turn on full screen, handy if you do not have a mouse wheel for example. All of these will undergo some more changes in the future, but we are quite happy with the new foundation...hope you are, too.
We added a Delay op that gives you the possibility to add delay, warble and grittiness to existing audio streams. The documentation has also been updated!
A lot of bug fixes, tiny updates and more user-friendly UX with already existing audio ops, check out the changelog for more.
Spending (most of) your time untangling a lot of cables? Triggers especially have the habit of accumulating on outports. We gave the Sequence op a "clean up" function to make your live just that one missing bit easier:
Made with cables
To give you more control on how your work is presented on, say "made with cables", or any social media site, we now allow you to create a screenshot on demand. Manually picking the face of your patch, so to say.
And last but not least:
the cables team
Last year saw five big updates that we made to cables. In February, we gave you GLTF-Support, working with MSDF-Fonts and basic "Multiplayer"-Functionality, April came with a lot of cleanup and fixes, July gave you the possibility to play with physics a bit, made sharing your patches easier working with collaborators and gave you data nerds a bit more functionality on arrays.
But what did you people do with all of that? Let's see:
Top patches of the year
These are the top patches of the year, ordered by likes in descending order, attributed to the patch-owner:
People use cables for work and privately, for money and for free, for arts and commercial projects.
So as you can surely see: It has been quite a year for cables and the community. Stay tuned for things to come!
As of today we will be releasing new video tutorials aimed at using the HTML and CSS ops inside of cables.
The goal is to keep them as short and informative as possible like our byte sized video series.
The first video will show you how to get started with using the DIV element op to introduce interactivity to your cables patches.

We asked him some questions to give us insights into the creative process of how the web page was created.
A big thank you to him for taking the time to answer them.
