LMMS: 0.4.9 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.

We're glad to announce the availability of LMMS 0.4.9. This version is a maintainance release of the 0.4.x series. It fixes most of the bugs found in version 0.4.8. Thanks to all who helped make this release (especially those who kept up testing and reporting bugs)!

Summary for version 0.4.9:

Core:
* MidiWinMM: fixed compiler warning
* Build system: fixed relative linker paths warnings
* Build system: explicitely link against WinMM library on Win32

GUI:
* SampleTrack: do not hide EffectRackView forever when closing subwindow
