Petri-Foo, the fork of the soft-sampler known as Specimen, has a new
release, 0.1.85, available:


This new release brings two and a half new features with it:

(1.0) Non Session Management support
(2.0) 'Full Save' functionality
(2.5) Import

(1.0) NSM support can only be built if the system has liblo installed.
      If liblo (the lightweight OSC implementation) is _not_ installed
      petri-foo will be built _without_ NSM support.

(2.0) "Full Save" functionality increases the portability of Petri-Foo's
      'dish files'. A dir is created (the bank dir) containing the dish
      file along with symlinks to external samples used. the bank dir
      can then be archived using `tar -h`.

      To use full save, just select 'full save as' instead of 'save as'
      from the file menu. Selecting 'save' will do the right thing after
      doing so.

(2.5) The import function is very self explanatory: it loads a dish file
      without deleting the existing patches.
