KMid2 0.2 released

KMid2 is a MIDI/Karaoke player for KDE4. It runs in Linux, using the ALSA Sequencer.

KMid2 plays MIDI and karaoke files to hardware MIDI devices or software synthesizers. It supports playlists, MIDI mappers, tempo (speed), volume and pitch (transpose) controls and configurable character encoding, font and color for lyrics. The graphic views include a rhythm view (visual metronome), a channels window with solo/muting controls and instrument selectors, and a piano player window (pianola). KMid2 runs in Linux, using the ALSA Sequencer.

Changes for this release:
* External soft-synths can be automatically launched at startup. A new page including FluidSynth and TiMidity++ settings has been added to the "Configure kmid2" dialog.
* Each channel may be labeled in a text field besides each channel number.
* New "lock instrument" button in the channels window to override the song's predefined instruments.
* Settings per song can be saved and automatically retrieved, including text encoding, volume, pitch, rhythm, channel labels and fixed instruments.
* The sample songs location is added to the places navigation panel in the open dialog.
* Several other usability enhancements. Many thanks to the KDE Usability Team for the suggestions.
