Here it is, a new QMidiArp version has arrived! The main new features are JACK MIDI,
which is the default backend now, JACK Session support, and a new in-sequence loop
marker that can be used to bounce the play direction or to loop at a mouse-clicked
position in the sequence. Note that you can still get the alsa backend by starting with
qmidiarp -a .
The full list of noticeable changes is below.
Thanks again to all having reported ideas and bugs and given their support.
Masters of the step sequencer, Enjoy!
