Re: [Sc-devel] 3.2 RC cutoff time [was Re: Quarks and svn]

Excuse my immediate riposte.

This is exactly the sort of last minute change that can cause major issues: 

start { arg argClock, quant=1.0;
^this.play(argClock, true, quant)

You've just added a quant of 1.0 to everybody's code. The default for play is 0.0. 

resume also seems to have a quant of 1.0 which should probably be 0.0 by default. 

I know some of you like the quant thing, but it's hardly the most general timing representation (resting on isochronous beats does not cover all of the world's music, let alone new musics...). No problem with the arguments, but I do have a problem with the quant=1.0 default.

No problem here (the cutoff is 8pm for me). I have a new helpfile to 
add this afternoon and the Volume tweaks we talked about yesterday.

some of the Volume tweaks have been committed (see previous mail)

I've committed scheduling help as Quant.html and linked into it from Task, EventStreamPlayer and Pattern help.

Also added argClock and quant arguments to PauseStream:start - .resume() has them, why not start?
