0.8.3

is the most recent release. It has a lot of new features, new interfaces, and probably some new bugs too. 0.8.3 is not 100% compatible with older projects. Please see the changelog to get an overview of the differences between versions.

To use openFrameworks you will need an IDE, and the setup guide for your platform can walk you through this. Please post any bugs on the issues page, and post to the forum if you have any other questions. openFrameworks is distributed under the MIT License.

We release openFrameworks as an uncompiled library. This means that when you download and unzip openFrameworks, you will see the following folders: addons/, apps/, libs/, and a few more. These folders contain openFrameworks completely, so if you want to keep multiple versions of openFrameworks on your computer you should just create multiple folders. For example, one of_v0.8.0_osx_release/ folder and one of_v0.7.4_osx_release/ folder, each with their own apps/ folder. Even when new versions of openFrameworks are released, your old apps will still compile with old versions of openFrameworks.

The examples folder is a great place to start. Inside examples you'll find a variety of examples that show what is possible with openFrameworks. They demonstrate font loading, graphics, audio input and output, sound file playback and FFT analysis, video grabbing, movie playing, image loading and saving, event handling, serial communication, and much more.
