BEAST/BSE version 0.5.0 is available for download at:

ftp://beast.gtk.org/pub/beast/v0.5
or
http://beast.gtk.org/beast-ftp/v0.5

BEAST (the Bedevilled Audio SysTem) is a graphical front-end to
BSE (the Bedevilled Sound Engine), a library for music composition,
audio synthesis and sample manipulation. The project is hosted at:

http://beast.gtk.org

This new development series of BEAST comes with a lot of
the internals redone, many new GUI features and a sound
generation back-end separated from any GUI activities.

The most outstanding new feature is the track editor which
allows free arrangement of parts in songs and adds loop
support to simplify song edits.

Be warned though, the .bse file format hasn't completely
stabilized yet, so incompatibilities with future versions
may occur.

Overview of Changes in BEAST/BSE 0.5.0:

* Moved BSE into its own thread
* Added IDL based code generator [Stefan Westerfeld]
* Deployed new middleware layer
* Major documentation generation improvements [Alper Ersoy]
* Generate structure documentation [Timj, Alper]
* Added documentation about Gtk+ GUI extensions
* Made documentation browser navigatable
* Improved MIDI support
* Added track editor to allow complex song arrangements
* The guile shell to BSE is named bsesh now
* Major code cleanups, bug fixes and refactoring
* Lots of GUI fixes, improvements and revamps
* Bug fixes and major cleanups
