This is a maintenance release, fixing a crash in Windows when playing certain 
MIDI files and connecting a player output to VMPK input. The reset all button 
now also resets the internal controllers states. The number of keys is now 
constrained to reasonable limits within the MIDI notes range. The "grab 
keyboard" feature is now an optional runtime setting, as a workaround for 
some broken X11 window managers and desktops.

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard is a MIDI event generator and receiver. It doesn't 
produce any sound by itself, but can be used to drive a MIDI synthesizer 
(either hardware or software, internal or external). You can use the 
computer's keyboard to play MIDI notes, and also the mouse. You can use the 
Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard to display the played MIDI notes from another 
instrument or MIDI file player.
