Virtual MIDI Piano Keyboard is a MIDI events 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.

Changes for v0.6.0:
* Qt5 migration completed. XCB replacing Xlib on Linux/Unix
* RtMIDI replaced by Drumstick-RT with pluggable backends: ALSA Seq, OSS, 
Windows, Mac OSX, Network and FluidSynth.
* Ticket #39:  keyboard can start on any note
* Allow to configure any number of keys, instead of full octaves
* New translations: Serbian and Galician

Requirements for all platforms: CMake 2.8/3.0 and Qt 5.1 or later.

Please use the mailing list <vmpk-devel at lists.sourceforge.net> for questions 
and comments. Thanks.
