OpenLP 2.9.1 aka 3.0 Alpha 2 - Encouraging Ephraim [UPDATED]

It has been a few months since the first alpha release and now the time has come for the next alpha release. We expect to have implemented most of the new features that will be in the upcoming 3.0 release, so the next release will be a beta release, marking the shift to focus on bugfixes and stability.

Release Highlights

  • Fixed planning center plugin

  • New service file format (faster loading of presentations from service file)

  • Web remote and web complete

  • Songs with Media backgrounds

  • Media now supports live streams via cameras or VLC IP streams

  • Changes to internals which improve the start up time

  • Tons of bugfixes.

Do note that this is an alpha release and as such it is not suitable for "production use". There will be serious bugs. There will be crashes. There is a high risk of data loss. That being said, we hope you will test this release and report any findings to the forums or issue tracker. It is recommended to use the portable build/mode (download the portable build for Windows, or use the -p command line argument on Linux or macOS) if you do not want to affect existing install.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
