Here it is, a new QMidiArp version has arrived! The main new features are JACK MIDI, 

which is the default backend now, JACK Session support, and a new in-sequence loop 

marker that can be used to bounce the play direction or to loop at a mouse-clicked 

position in the sequence. Note that you can still get the alsa backend by starting with
qmidiarp -a .

The full list of noticeable changes is below.

Thanks again to all having reported ideas and bugs and given their support.

Masters of the step sequencer, Enjoy!
