This release has significant improvements to audio synthesis
capabilities and user interface. The documentation has been improved in
several places, and automated generation was integrated into the CI.
Audio synthesis enhancements include support for new CLAP (draft)
extensions, such as transport information and file references. We now
support non-linear mappings for BlepSynth ADSR times, and a new audio
plugin Freeverb by Jezar at Dreampoint was added, with fixes to the
damping mode in the original version. Additionally, a Jack PCM driver
based on Stefan Westerfelds’ code was integrated.
Performance improvements were achieved by adding a new optimizing memory
allocator and supporting low-latency scheduling via sched_* or RtKit.
Saving projects will now automatically create backups of recent versions.
The user interface has also seen significant improvements in this
release. These include context help via F1 key in various UI components,
fixes to mouse wheel sensitivity for modern browsers, improved tooltips
and note editing in the piano roll. The UI can now be zoomed via new
menu entries, the color palette was updated, and integration of
In terms of packaging, AppImage builds saw major compatibility
improvements, and we increased the frequency of Nightly releases,
building from nearly all significant trunk merge commits. We aim to
generate more regular releases in the future instead of having lots of
Nightly builds between regular releases.
