Hi all and sorry for crossposting...

I'm happy to announce a new version of QuteCsound (0.4.1). This
release is mostly a bug fix and usability enhancement release, but it
also contains a few minor useful features. One of the highlights is
localization in Spanish, German and French.

QuteCsound is a simple frontend for Csound featuring a highlighting
editor with autocomplete, interactive widgets and integrated help. It
is a cross-platform drop in replacement for MacCsound (it can open
files created in MacCsound), and aims to be a simple yet powerful and
complete development environment for Csound.

QuteCsound 0.4.1 has been tested on Windows, OS X, Linux and Solaris,
and it is free software released under the LGPLv2 or at your option GPLv3.

You can get it here:

You can download a Quick Reference pdf document in English, Spanish or
German here:
