Nice! Thanks a lot, It's a great job what you are doing here.
Let's go test it (:

> Hi folks,
> After 15 months of hard work we're proud to announce the availability of
> LMMS 0.4.0, the Qt4-based successor of the 0.3.x series. Thanks to all who
> helped making up this release (especially those who kept up testing and
> reporting bugs)!
> Most of the core parts were rewritten and the whole application was ported
> Qt4. This results in a cleanly designed core, much better performance,
> higher stability, platform interoperability (LMMS is now running on MS
> and Apple's OS X too), and of course a lot of new features.
> Most important new features:
> * New artwork and style: LMMS 0.4.0 looks modern, professional, and
> * FX-mixer: Now you can route the output of each instrument-track into
> one of 64 FX-channels
> * Heavily improved automation: Freely usable automation-tracks and
> * Controllers: All knobs can be controlled live by one of the controllers:
> - MIDI-controller
> - LFO-controller
> - Peak-controller
> * Enjoy SoundFont files directly in LMMS using the new SF2-Player plugin
> * Create chiptune music with the new SID and PAPU plugins
> * Watch your sounds with the new SpectrumAnalyzer-plugin
> * Export your projects at arbitrary samplerates with oversampling of up to
> * LMMS now takes advantage of multiple cores/CPUs by using worker-threads
> * Time signatures other than 4/4 are now supported
> * Triplet notes can be used
> * Render your projects without any GUI/X11 in console mode
> * A selection of best LADSPA plugins is shipped with LMMS (mainly concerns
> Windows version)
> * Basic PulseAudio support (although ALSA is still recommended)
> * cmake-based build system allowing faster builds and greatly improved
> platform interoperability
> * Improved XML-based file format (not readable by 0.3.x)
> * Integration of the popular ZynAddSubFX synthesizer as a LMMS plugin
> (Linux users will find it in the "LMMS extras" package)
> * Heavily improved support for importing MIDI files
> Before doing anything, please remove any old version of LMMS you've
> Also make sure your distribution ships at least Qt 4.3.0. Having installed
> Qt >= 4.4.0 is recommended.
> Basic instructions on how to get this release up and running.
> a) Users of Ubuntu may want to download ready-to-use binary packages by
> deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tobydox/ubuntu intrepid main
> deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/tobydox/ubuntu hardy main
> to their /etc/apt/sources.list and run "apt-get update" and
> "apt-get install lmms". The "lmms-extras" package (containing ZynAddSubFX
> as a LMMS plugin) is available too and can be installed easily by
> running "apt-get install lmms-extras".
> b) Users of other Debian-based distributions may want to run
> If all build dependencies are met you'll find ready-to-use DEB-files
> c) Users of other Linux distributions will have to compile LMMS on their
> which luckily is not that complicated anymore. First grab the source
> tarball from  and extract it. Then do the following steps:
> cd lmms-0.4.0
> mkdir build
> cd build
> cmake .. -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
> sudo make install
> After running the cmake command you should look at the summary page which
> tells you about missing dependencies. It's desirable to have all of them
> installed to fully enjoy LMMS. After issueing the last command you should
> be able to run LMMS by invoking "lmms".
> d) Users of Apple's OS X basically will have to do the same as described
> in c) except that you will have to install xcode and macports before.
> A recent installation of Qt4 (>= 4.3.0) is required as well
> e) Users of MS Windows simply have to grab the installer from  and
> it. An optimized build for 64 bit Windows (hopefully) will be available
> Now enjoy LMMS! If you encounter any bugs, please submit them at our
> bugtracker . If you made a cool song with LMMS it'd be great if you'd
