Beast version 0.14.0 is released.

Beast is a Free Software (LGPLv2+) music synthesizer
and audio composer.

It provides a #MIDI #sequencer, unlimited undo, real-time #synthesis,
support for Linux #Audio Plugins (#LADSPA), Soundfont 2, WAV, AIFF,
Vorbis, Gus Patch, FLAC and MP3 files, 32bit audio rendering, full
duplex support, multi-core audio rendering and SIMD utilisation.

The source code is available via Git, the tarball and AppImage are here:


After downloading and making the Beast AppImage executable, it can
run on any Ubuntu-18.04 or Fedora-27 compatible Linux system.

The new experimental ebeast UI can be started with:

    ./beast-0.14.0.x64.AppImage --ebeast

The release NEWS and shortlog are appended.


## Beast 0.14.0:					(2019-07-02)

#### System Requirements
* Linux - Ubuntu 18.04 or Fedora-27 are needed to run the Beast AppImage.

#### User Interface EBEAST
* Added a preferences dialog.
* Properly support Open and Save of `.bse` files.
* Completed the Javascript IPC binding to support notifications and Anys.
* Added new styling for browser scrollbars.

#### Build Improvements
* Rewrote the entire build system to purely use non-recursive GNU Make and
  to get rid of autoconf, automake, libtool and related auto* tools.
* Support `make help` to outline build rules and build variables.
* Introduce `make default MODE=release` to configure for for production builds.
* Build artefacts are now generated under `./out/`, adjustable via
  `make default builddir=...`
* Merged all unit tests into a single binary which can run fully parallelized.
* Removed checks for pre-2009 POSIX systems and other legacy configurations.
* Replaced lengthy checks with `__has_include` and compiler builtins.
* Support builds from Github source code archives.
* Streamlined release process and version extraction.

#### Size Reductions
* Rewrote the Aida IPC layer to make it leaner by using C++ lambdas.
* Removed a lot of outdated code, which remains an ongoing effort.

#### Upgrades
* Upgrade to node-gyp-3.8 and node-sass-4.11
* Update to vue-2.6
* Upgrade to browserify-16 and babelify-10
* Upgrade electron to 2.0.18.
* Upgrade to fluidsynth 2.0.4. #101
* Fixed pandoc usage to support pandoc-2.
* Updated the C++ dependency to C++17.
* The build now makes use of g++-7 and clang++-6 optimization facilities.

#### Regression Fixes
* Fixed deadlock in DavOrgan during unref.

#### Other Changes
* Moved to XDG compliant config files in ~/.config/beast/.
* Integrated all Beast documentation artefacts into a single manual.
* Support latex formula rendering and proper fonts for the manual.
