Hi all,

Let me spread the word:) finally there comes this bug and some other
usability fixes on today's latest Qsynth 0.2.4 release.

As you might know already, Qsynth is a fluidsynth GUI front-end
application, written in C++ around the Qt3 toolkit, using Qt Designer.

Please check it out from:

http://qsynth.sourceforge.net

Upgrade is highly recommended as this one fixes a very annoying crash
bug that has been lurking for ages.

As simply pasted from the change-log:

- All widget captions changed to include proper application title prefix.

- Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date; sample SPEC
file for RPM build is now being included and generated at configure time.

- Missing icons on channel and soundfont setup context menus are now up;
bank/program splitter widget added to channel preset dialog.

- An abrupt segfault on engine restart have been finally fixed; this
issue has been quite an annoyance which has been around for ages and was
a highly probable showstopper just when restarting an engine due to
changes on the setup settings. Not anymore, hopefully.

- New tool buttons were added to the main widget, for adding a new
engine and removing the current one, while trying to increase the
visibility of multiple fluidsynth engine capability (for new users, at
least :)

- Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of registering the
traditional lastWindowClosed() signal to quit() /slot, just to let the
-geometry command line argument have some optional effect on X11.

- Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and Mac OS X
specialties. Also, install does the right thing with target file modes
(thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim Mayat, for pointing these out).

- Fixed output disability when messages limit option is turned off
(thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this one, while on qjackctl).

Hope you enjoy.
