OpenSesame 0.17 is available! In addition to bug-fixes and numerous refinements to the graphical interface, there are a few noteworthy new features:
- There is now a debug window, which is invaluable when creating Python inline code. You can print to the debug window using the standard Python 'print' statement. The debug window also includes a simple Python interpreter.
- Added a timeout option to response items.
- Added an auto response mode, in which OpenSesame simulates responses. This can be very handy when you want to give your experiment a test run, but rather not spend an hour sitting behind your computer pressing keys.
- Added plugins! You can (relatively) easily extend OpenSesame's functionality through plug-ins. Four plug-ins are already included:
- fixation_dot: a convenience plugin for displaying central fixation dots.
- text_display: a convenience plugin for presenting text displays.
- text_input: a response collection plugin which provides a text input field.
- advanced_delay: a timing plugin which waits for a random interval with a specified mean and standard deviation.
- Another tutorial. This is not really a feature, of course, but it is nevertheless a very useful addition. You can download the tutorial here (PDF format).
