Happy days!! PsychoPy 3.2.0 is out!
As with all major releases you should check carefully that your experiment still runs as expected. In particular for this release check the timings of your Builder experiment (they should be better than they were before but do check).
Faster audio with PTB backend
This is the first version to provide the Psychtoolbox audio backend. To test that out you need to change your settings. e.g.:
['PTB', 'pyo', 'sounddevice'] but this engine is considerably faster than all the other options, supporting sub-ms precision on most hardware, so if you care at all about audio latencies then you should give it a try. In future versions this will become the default audio option.
Better stimulus timing in Builder scripts
The other big change (and beware this will probably alter the timing of your existing studies) is that experiements setting the start/stop of components using
Time (s) settings will have different timing. PsychoPy has a new function
Window.getFutureFlip() allowing us to find out the time of the next screen refresh, which allows more accurate timing tests for your visual stimulus components. Rather than basing a decision (should we draw that stimulus?) on the current time the decision is now based on what the time will be when the flip occurs. This should mean that the previous advice to use
Frames for timing of short stimuli will no longer be needed.
There were also a lot of bug fixes in this release and hopefully it will be a smoother experience for all!
