After more than a year of an active development Canorus team is proud to
announce immediate release of Canorus version 0.7beta.

You can download it here:

Release 0.6 was skipped for various stability, timing and
reorganizational issues.

Users should test the beta release thoroughly and report any bugs to our
devel mailing list for the final version to be released in two to three

Translation strings are now frozen until the final version, so
translators are welcome to translate Canorus to their language and post
translations of the GUI and the User's manual until Sunday, 22nd March
2009 24:00 CET!

Best wishes.
