V 1.3.5-rc

I don't usually post here about release candidates, but there have been a lot
of changes since V 1.3.4

Some (like vector control) were shown to a handful of people at LAC 2015, but
others are a direct response to suggestions there. Also there is a roadmap we're
following too.

Before making a full release I'd very much like comments. What you like, what
you don't and what's just 'meh'. So please grab the current snapshot.

In brief:

User interface

Visual identification of use of any/all three synth engines.

Part number and instrument name shown in all editing window title bars,
also voice number shown in AddSynth oscillator editor.

Scroll wheel control of all rotary knobs  +Ctrl for very fine control.

Horizontal as well as vertical drag of rotary knobs.

Revised some layouts and removed redundant controls and refreshes.


On demand jack port creation for individual part outputs.

NRPNs including 14bit & increment/decrement.
Also ZynAddSubFX compatible ones (with some extensions).

Yoshimi now supports 16, 32 or 64 semi-independent parts.

Vector control.

Direct part control.


The 'docs' directory now gets installed, although it's still scrappy text files.
It also has a fair bit of info about the above features.

There is a new historical branch (currently with versions 0.010 to 0.038).

Yoshimi is now mirrored https://github.com/abrolag/yoshimi

Of course the original is still http://sourceforge.net/projects/yoshimi
