MusE 2.0 Release Candidate 2
Quite a bit of polish has been done in the GUI and some under the hood fixes for various audio and MIDI data handling.
Crunched list of improvements:
- New super-glue feature.
- Global Cut: Fixed crashes with markers. Re-did marker section in structure.cpp:adjustGlobalLists().
- Fixed drag and drop cloning parts - bad reference count in PartCanvas::moveItem().
- File Open dialog: Start with song data and configuration.
- New 'Duplicate tracks' Edit action, and dialog. Post-cleanups. TODO: Copy plugins, fix copying parts.
- Audio strip prefader now controls audio.
- Fixed: Annoying ladspa browser issues. Leak: Dialog was not destroyed. Sorting. Save complete state.
- Fixed long-time graphics corruption issue: Large areas of desktop erased to background.
- New: MIDI routing matrix. No more clumsy routing menu items. Currently for MIDI Track iR and Audio Input iR solo routes.
- Improved: MIDI ports list now fills automatically at start.
- List only writeable ports in track list output port column and MIDI track info combo box.
- Jack MIDI devices now save an additional required rwFlags xml tag.

- Improved: Project save dialog: Now has quick save as Template. Separate project/result paths shown. Editable project folder.

- Changed: In File Dialog, 'User' initial prepend path changed to muse./config path. So user files + templates are shown.
- Fixed: Template directory changed from /home/templates to muse config directory. Support for old files included.
- Fixed: DSSI synth audio inputs. This means dssi vocoders, samplers etc. should work now.
