Season greetings y'all,
As cheesy as it might go, as a must already,
Qtractor 0.7.2 (tacky gluon beta) is out!
Quite frankly, there's nothing really stopping you from an upgrade or
rather update to taste! :)
Qtractor  is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application
written in C++ with the Qt framework . Target platform is Linux,
where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK ) for audio and the
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA ) for MIDI are the main
infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio
workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.
Major highlights for this dot release are:
* MIDI Track/Instrument bank/programs menu (NEW)
* VST plug-ins preset/bank (FXP/FXB) files support (NEW)
* Duplicate track menu command (NEW)
* XRUN status bar indicator (NEW)
And, of course, Qtractor  is now built to Qt5  as per configure
Hope you enjoy.

multi-timbral instrument plugins when inserted on a MIDI bus.
- Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
