MusE 3.1pre1

Postby spamatica » Mon Feb 25, 2019 8:55 pm

And.... finally a tarball uploaded. Please test and report back any issues for this pre-release.

== MusE 3.1pre1 release February 25, 2019 ==

As always time flies. Flies are also very busy little bees. Heh.
Regardless, a new MusE version is coming up with bunch of new features.

Some highlights in this release are:
* Safe Plugin Scanner 'sandbox', makes startup both speedier and more importantly much more stable.
* PRECOUNT feature reintroduced
* Added shortcut for renaming a part
* Added a text filter to the shortcut dialog
* Issue 639: Make 'midi remote' dialog box more clear.
* Fix Issue 640: wavecanvas.cpp use QProcess not fork() et al.
* Updated all PyQt4 based midi scripts to use PyQt5
* NEW! Midi controller graphs copy/cut/paste and drag/drop:
* Mixer strips added to Drum and Wave Editors:
* Massive graphics, canvases, cut/copy/paste/drag/drop workover
* Entire graphics chain from class View all the way through to the editor classes has been reworked.
* Update regions as well as rectangles are now passed to most routines.
* Lasso changed in arranger to take less cpu
* Copy/cut/paste mechanism is now designed to be more WYSIWYG, to avoid operating unknown to user on selected items in some other out-of-view window.
* Midi controller graphs no longer wait for sync with audio cycle to draw
* Merge pull 634 "Run properly on HiDPI screens" from hfiguiere.
* For bug 632: Fix slight text error in Global Settings option: Now reads "Ctrl + right click sets left range marker".
* Added Ladspa RDF (lrdf) support. Initial support for now.
* New command line option -R forces rescan.
* Added command-line option -S (Don't load MESS plugins).
* Fix bug 629 by mqnc: Meta events (lyrics) not imported.
* Menu cleanups, rearrangement
* Fixed LV2 X11 GUI size.
* Fix non-functional mouse wheel on Canvas
* RtAudio realtime fixes
* Fixes to Master Track functionality, and Transport mini-makeover
* Auto-connect metronome to first audio output track.
* Major fixes to long-standing fundamental midi timing errors
* Added transport seek anti-flood mechanism.

Thank you Robert.
You da man!

I've got a scanner fix as discussed in another thread. Should be done soon.
It should make it into the final release.
