After a long time laying in the backyard, QSynth 0.2.3 is being released
to the world :)

Qsynth is a Qt GUI front-end application to the excellent fluidsynth
soundfont2 engine.

You can check it out, right away from:


The fine print goes like there's no really big new features on this. After
all its only a minor dot-realease. As you may find from reading the
changelog, there's a:

- New option for system tray icon and menu, which is known to be effective
on KDE enabled desktops; support for freedesktop.org's system tray
protocol specification has been included so this maybe also effective on

- Setup options for alternate MIDI and Audio devices were introduced.

- Output level meters get smoother and slightly layout optimized.

- Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where available, as
the default handler is usually fatal when a JACK client is zombified

- Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line count exceeds
in one third the user configured line count maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in
use, the QTextView widget is otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText

- Updated Mac OS X build instructions (README-OSX, by Ebrahim Mayat).

That's it.
