ROSEGARDEN 15.10, codename "Oranges and Lemons" RELEASED

The Rosegarden team is pleased to announce the release of version 15.10 of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux. One tester comments, “You'll be pleased to know that this puts Rosegarden ahead of all the other sequencers I've tried for all CCs including bank changes, program changes and NRPNs.”

With this major bugfix release, Ted Felix untangled a very old problem with instrument parameters that stumped quite a few developers over the years. Tito Latini joined the project briefly, and went on a bit of a rampage, fixing bug after bug. Yves got in on the effort, and contributed several important fixes. Even Michael wrote a little code here and there.

This is one of the best releases we've turned out in years, and we strongly encourage everyone to upgrade immediately!

Bug Fixes

noteoff is duplicated

and if the immediate event (realtime) was a note, it was time shifted and shortened (also with zero duration)

except name (bug 1443)

by the MIDI spec

a track is imported, the events at time zero are checked to see if any of them can be moved to the Instrument configuration

New Features

    Previously, tracks created from different channels in a MIDI track
    would be named "Imported MIDI". Now, they have the same name as the
    MIDI track they came from.
    Previously the MIDI instrument name was used to name the segments.
    Now it is added to the end of the track name in parens.
    Segments are now named after their tracks.
    If no names are found, we fall back on the general MIDI program
