 We are pleased to announce the release of rakarrack 0.5.8 Equinox, a summer gift.  This is a major feature release, but we have also fixed many old bugs.

 We know that today is a Solstice, but we think that Equinox is a better definition for this version because we have worked diligently since release of 0.4.2, and 0.5.8 for us is like the start of a new cycle in the development of Rakarrack. Releasing on a Solstice is simply because this is a good reason to celebrate if you're a musician with preference for free open source software.
