Please be advised that PixaFlux 2019 11 01 introduces significant changes that make some projects from older versions incompatible with newer versions. We have tried to minimize the impact when loading older projects but in some cases you'll find missing nodes, missing connections or missing attribute values.
Please read the Deprecation 2019 11 01 wiki page for more information.
