Version 1.3.8 has been out for a while now, but we didn't announce it generally,
as almost immediately, a bug in cmake was discovered that caused a segfault on
build. This is a curious one and only seems the affect the December build of
cmake 3.4.1 on debian testing. Fedora and associated distros have no problem.

However, one of yoshimi's little helpers found a way to bypass the issue.

Codenamed 'The Swan', version is now available from both:

Full details are in the tarball /doc/Yoshimi_1.3.8-features.txt but in brief:

Program changes from any source while actually playing multiple tracks are now
virtually silent - and are silent if the part being changed is not sounding.
Root & Bank changes are always silent.

Storage of Audio & MIDI preferences have been improved, along with preserving
your CLI/GUI working environment choice.

The CLI can now set almost all the 'top level' controls, and the major 'user'
settings for parts. The parser allows highly abbreviated commands for fast

e.g: s p 4 pr 6
(set part 4 program 6)
This sets part 4 to the instrument with ID 6 from the current bank and root. It
also then leaves you at part context level and pointed to part 4. Additionally,
it will activate that part if it was off (and the config setting is checked).

This release is sound/instrument compatible with Zyn. 2.5.2
