On behalf of the FluidSynth development team I'm happy to announce the  
release of FluidSynth 1.1.1 "Clarity".  This is primarily a bug fix  
release to 1.1.0, but also includes a couple new API additions.   
Upgrade from 1.1.0 is highly recommended, as there were many  
regressions in that version, especially in regards to QSynth  


FluidSynth is a software synthesizer based on the SoundFont 2 standard.
