Hello everybody! Finally it has happened, nearly two years from the
last stable release we are ready to present to you the final MusE 2.0
version. A lot has happened and changed, still the migration from 1.1
to 2.0 should be quite easy and definitely worth it.

The big changes since 1.1 are as follows:
* Moved to qt4, this affects the visuals and potentially improved portability
* Graphical automation in the arranger
* A new score editor
* MusE now defaults to using midi through Jack, -A enables native alsa support
* New style MDI gui with a bunch of configuration options to satisfy all tastes
* Redone midi editing tool dialogs with lots of new functionality
* Lots and lots and lots of internal small and big changes to improve
stability, speed and functionality
* PSIIF support (support for: probably something important I forgot)

A much condensed list of changes since the last beta are as follows:
- Sync fix: MusE now records tempo changes from externally clocked midi.
- Finally! Audio controller playback has smooooth frame resolution
even with large audio buffers.
- Feature: Midi control of audio paramters.
- Lots of automation improvements
- Switched to use JACK midi
- Added: -A switch: "Force inclusion of ALSA midi even if using Jack".
- Lots of leaks removed
- Added colorhints to iR and oR routing buttons
- Templates: File dialog: Lots of changes
- Lots of widget focus fixes
- Allow loading of DSSI synths in LADSPA browser.
- Midi editors: Added "Delta Mode" button to Note Info toolbar.

bugs and otherwise been lending a helpful hand!

Happy creating/recording/playing/arranging with MusE!

And stay tuned for the inevitable 2.0.1 release ;)

MusE 2.0rc2

Hello everybody and a happy new year!

The final release is now in sight, here is one (hopefully) final
release candidate, rc2. Quite a bit of polish has been done in the gui
and some under the hood fixes for various audio and midi data
handling.

Crunched list of improvements:
- New super-glue feature
- Global Cut: Fixed crashes with markers. Re-did marker section in
structure.cpp:adjustGlobalLists().
- Fixed drag and drop cloning parts - bad reference count in
PartCanvas::moveItem()
- File Open dialog: Start with song data and configuration.
- New 'Duplicate tracks' Edit action, and dialog. Post-cleanups. TODO:
Copy plugins, fix copying parts
- Audio strip prefader now controls audio.
- Fixed: Annoying ladspa browser issues. Leak: Dialog was not
destroyed. Sorting. Save complete state
- Fixed long-time graphics corruption issue: Large areas of desktop
erased to background.
- New: Midi routing matrix! No more clumsy routing menu items.
Currently for Midi Track iR and Audio Input iR solo routes
- Improved: Midi ports list now fills automatically at start
- List only writeable ports in track list output port column and midi
track info combo box.
- Jack midi devices now save an additional required rwFlags xml tag.
- Midi ports dialog: Auto dis/connect the stated default channels when
selecting a device.
- Complete Spanish translation from Cristian Ramos
- Improved: Project save dialog: Now has quick save as Template.
Separate project/result paths shown. Editable project folder.
- Added: Project directory in global settings dialog.
- Changed: In File Dialog, 'User' initial prepend path changed to
muse ./config path. So user files + templates are shown.
- Fixed: Template directory changed from /home/templates to muse
config directory. Support for old files included.
- Fixed: DSSI synth audio inputs. This means dssi vocoders, samplers
etc. should work now
- Re-write: Fixed audio mixing, meter processing. Audio, and meters,
for all mono <-> stereo route combinations work sensibly now.
- Window titles of ladspa and dssi plugins now have track name prefix
to help identify them.
- Added "Unused Devices" menu to the arranger's port popupmenu for
rapid device selection

MusE 2.0alpha

Hello everybody, we have a present for you, a new release of MusE.
The alpha indicates this is an early version so it's mainly
- a teaser to spread the word.
- an early adopters build.
- to welcome developers who want to port MusE to other platforms.

MusE has now been completely ported to the Qt4 architecture and we
(mainly Tim and Orcan)
are busy to make it even better than before, lots of gui stuff being reworked.
MusE now also sports a new version of the DeicsOnze, DX11 emulating
softsynth, up from version 0.2 to 1.0.
The homepage has received a new look that we hope will give a better
indication of what MusE is and does.
Do visit http://muse-sequencer.org.

Happy Holidays!
