Changes for 0.5.9:
- Auto-incremental version numbering of backup
session files; brand new versioning mode option
- Fixed one long as ever MIDI file export bug,
which was about washing all self-induced MIDI
bank-select (CC#0, CC#32) and program-change
(PC#) events into MIDI channel 1, regardless of
the source track/channel.
- Fixed initial sample-rate settlement on
plugin chains for all tracks and buses whenever
a session file original sample-rate differs from
the current audio device engine (ie. JACK).
- New German (de) translation added.
- Now accepting JACK transport tempo and
time-signature changes while in slave transport
- Fix ref-count and auto-removal of created
files that result from clip merge/export when
session is closed but not saved.
- MIDI track instrument bank/program
selection, from plugin UIs that support it, is
now effectively and complete.
- Custom connections for dedicated audio
outputs from all plugin chains in MIDI tracks or
buses are back in business, hopefully restored
gain on session load (ticket by yuba, thanks).
- Track Properties dialog now dirty after any
plugin related change.
- Tempo Map/Markers dialog is not set
initially dirty anymore.
- Audio buses plugin state's persistence were
found AWOL: while being properly saved as usual,
were being restored to default on every session
- NSM (Non Session Management) support is
- The MIDI clip editor (aka. piano-roll) gets
a brand new re-scale mode: ctrl+dragging the
right edge of a note now re-scales all times and
duration of all the subsequent selected notes.
- The new MIDI clip editor re-scale mode also
applicable to event values (eg. note velocities,
pitch-bend), while Ctrl+dragging the edges of an
event vertical bar.
- VST plugin (GUI) idle timer makes a
- Hard-wired LV2 UI selection order for
plugins which supply more than one option
(lv2_external_ui gets always honored first then,
as provided via libsuil, X11, GTK and last but
not least, Qt4).
