Mon Jan 30 2006 -- Sweep 0.9.1 Released
=======================================

Sweep is an audio editor and live playback tool for GNU/Linux, BSD and
compatible systems. It supports many music and voice formats including
WAV, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis, Speex and MP3, with multichannel editing and
LADSPA effects plugins. Inside lives a pesky little virtual stylus called
Scrubby who enjoys mixing around in your files.

This release is available as a source tarball at:

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/sweep/sweep-0.9.1.tar.bz2?download

New in this release
-------------------

This is a maintainance release.

The previous release (0.9.0) had a bug that prevented sweep from
populating the ALSA devices in settings. The bug was only apparent
when you built with ALSA and didn't have a previous installation
of sweep that used ALSA.

If you installed sweep 0.9.0 and had problems getting any sound
output then please upgrade to 0.9.1.

Sweep is designed to be intuitive and to give you full control. It includes
almost everything you would expect in a sample editor, and then some:

* precise, vinyl like scrubbing
* looped, reverse, and pitch-controlled playback
* playback mixing of unlimited independent tracks
* looped and reverse recording
* internationalisation
* multichannel and 32 bit floating point PCM file support
* support for Ogg Vorbis, MP3 and Speex compressed audio files
* sample rate conversion and channel operations
* LADSPA 1.1 effects support
* multiple views, discontinuous selections
* easy keybindings, mouse wheel zooming
* unlimited undo/redo with fully revertible edit history
* multithreaded background processing
* shaded peak/mean waveform rendering, multiple colour schemes

Sweep is Free Software, available under the GNU General Public License.
