The first unified LV2 release, LV2 1.0.0, is out.
This release merges the previous lv2core package with all the official
extension packages, as well as example plugins, lv2specgen, and
additional data. From a developer point of view, the biggest change is
that all LV2 API headers can be used by simply checking for the single
pkg-config package "lv2" (for compatibility the previous "lv2core"
package is still installed). Implementations are encouraged to abandon
the "copy paste headers" practice and depend on this package instead.
With this release, several new extensions have become stable that
together greatly increase the power of LV2: atom, log, parameters,
patch, port-groups, port-props, resize-port, state, time, worker.

MIDA 0.4.1 released, changes:
* dramatically improved efficiency, now very long compositions can be
* lexer: changed style of comments, shell-like comments adopted;
* changed alias of notes: dièse is written now as `s` not as `#`, so
middle octave is: `c5`, `cs5`, `d5`, `ds5`, `e5`, etc.;
* now there are alias for all supported (in MIDI) pitches from 0 to 127,
that is: from `c0` to `g10` (alias `c10` -- `g10` added);
* changed alias of modulation signs, reason for such change is purely
technical -- all alias now are predefined definitions, rather than
syntactic sugar, so all alias must be valid identifiers;
* identifiers can contain underline sign (`_`);
* arbitrary number of files can be specified for loading (from command
line, as well as from interactive REPL);
* many purely technical changes that are difficult to explain concisely,
but they should be mentioned, most important being addition of test
suite and ability to generate source files from syntax trees;
* added command line options: `--license` and `--version`.
So, here are some syntax changes, this is because the project is still
in flux, but it's settling down.

DrumGizmo version 0.9.8.1-hotfix released!
After releasing 0.9.8 we discovered a rather serious bug in the
resampling code that would cause sample skewing over the channels when
resampling was enabled. This release fixes that.
