LMMS: 0.4.1 released

LMMS is a free cross-platform alternative to commercial programs like FL Studio®, which allow you to produce music with your computer. This includes the creation of melodies and beats, the synthesis and mixing of sounds, and arranging of samples. You can have fun with your MIDI-keyboard and much more; all in a user-friendly and modern interface.

Version 0.4.1 is a maintainance release of the 0.4.x series. It fixes most of the bugs found in 0.4.0. Furthermore various components have been improved to work more reliable and/or userfriendly. Thanks to all who helped making up this release (especially those who kept up testing and reporting bugs)!
