LMMS: 0.4.3 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 0.4.3 is a maintainance release of the 0.4.x series. It fixes most of the bugs found in version 0.4.2 and brings in improvements on performance and stability. Thanks to all who helped making up this release (especially those who kept up testing and reporting bugs)!

Detailed changes:

Core:
* fixed various bugs regarding MIDI recording and record accompany
* do not lockup when freezing pattern
* sampleBuffer: fixed small bug in usage of libsamplerate API which caused lots of zero samples at the end of various samples (e.g. in AudioFileProcessor)
* sampleBuffer: do not load samples bigger than 100 MB
* integrated latest libsamplerate which is both faster and more reliable
* various fixes to allow compilation with upcoming GCC 4.4
* simplified formulas for calculating envelope and LFO data resulting in about 3x performance when changing envelope or LFO parameter frequently (e.g. by automation)
* audio mixer: heavily improved organization of worker-threads resulting in much better performance and stability (especially with Hyperthreading-enabled CPUs)

GUI:
* update patternView after freezing
* fixed painting of frozen patterns
* make space always play song when in Song-Editor regardless of last button pressed
* rewrote timing of fading animation for not postponing updates of hidden fadeButton until it becomes visible
* disable output monitor per default and show a hint on how to enable
* small cosmetic improvements
* Piano-Roll: fixed bug that alloed to move notes past the beginning via shift+left
* fixed unquantized BB-objects dragging in Song-Editor, use Alt modified instead Ctrl
* fixed cloning of Beat/Bassline track
* fixed infinite recursion in mouse-event-handling of knob on Mac OSX

Plugins:
* Sf2Player: update patch after loading settings (i.e. project or preset)
* FLP import: properly initialize isMuted member - fixes muted FX channels when importing older FL files

Win32 build:
* used latest snapshot of GCC 4.3.x series for compiling
* integrated latest snapshots of Qt 4.4.x
* upgraded libsndfile from 1.0.17 to 1.0.18
