Golly is an open source, cross-platform application for exploring Conway's Game of Life and other cellular automata.

What is new in this release:

  • The middle mouse button can now be used for panning, regardless of the current cursor mode.
  • Fixed potential crash when pasting a text pattern into any hash-based algorithm.
  • Fixed crash on Mac OS 10.9 when opening a modal dialog like Save Pattern.
  • Fixed crash on Windows 8 when opening the Set Rule dialog.
  • Fixed bug in QuickLife algorithm that could cause cells at the bottom/left edges of the viewport to disappear every odd generation.
  • Fixed bug in QuickLife algorithm that could cause the selection rectangle to appear offset by one pixel (left or right).
  • The shift.pl/py scripts save the given parameters for the next run.
  • The evolve command aborts the current script with an error message if the given number of generations is negative.
  • Fixed minor problem with the Fit Pattern/Selection menu commands not centering a pattern/selection accurately in some cases. Ditto for the fit and fitsel script commands. The visrect script command is also more accurate.
  • Fixed bug that could cause Undo to fail due to a temporary macrocell file containing comment lines not prefixed with #C.
  • Start-up message now shows if this version of Golly is 32-bit or 64-bit.

What is new in version 2.7:

  • The middle mouse button can now be used for panning, regardless of the current cursor mode.
  • Fixed potential crash when pasting a text pattern into any hash-based algorithm.
  • Fixed crash on Mac OS 10.9 when opening a modal dialog like Save Pattern.
  • Fixed crash on Windows 8 when opening the Set Rule dialog.
  • Fixed bug in QuickLife algorithm that could cause cells at the bottom/left edges of the viewport to disappear every odd generation.
  • Fixed bug in QuickLife algorithm that could cause the selection rectangle to appear offset by one pixel (left or right).
  • The shift.pl/py scripts save the given parameters for the next run.
  • The evolve command aborts the current script with an error message if the given number of generations is negative.
  • Fixed minor problem with the Fit Pattern/Selection menu commands not centering a pattern/selection accurately in some cases. Ditto for the fit and fitsel script commands. The visrect script command is also more accurate.
  • Fixed bug that could cause Undo to fail due to a temporary macrocell file containing comment lines not prefixed with #C.
  • Start-up message now shows if this version of Golly is 32-bit or 64-bit.

What is new in version 2.6:

  • Fixed menu problems on Ubuntu when using Unity.
  • Fixed a nasty bug that could cause Golly to crash when doing a paste.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause the paste image to disappear after a flip/rotate.
  • Fixed bugs in Mac app caused by non-ASCII characters in some file paths.
  • Fixed a problem that prevented Golly starting up on Mac OS 10.9.
  • Tool bar buttons are no longer disabled when the main window is inactive.
  • The save settings in Preferences Layer are now obeyed by scripts. For example, let's assume you've ticked the option to be asked to save changes on creating a new pattern. If the current layer has changes and you run a script that calls new() then you'll get the standard dialog asking if you want to save those changes. If you cancel the dialog then the script is aborted. To avoid potential data loss, you now get a warning if you save a non-starting generation and earlier changes exist. The warning can be disabled in Preferences > Layer. Created an online archive for very large patterns.
