PyTuneSounds 0.0.5 released

We are proud to announce the release of PyTuneSounds 0.0.5.
PyTuneSounds was extended by an exciting feature, making the app even more useful. Besides estimating hearing-thresholds using the methods already implemented, it is now possible to use the very fast and accurate Maximum-Likelihood-Procedure that estimates the best psychometric function. This method was first described by Green (1993) and was studied and refined by many labs thereafter.
Besides adding this exciting feature, further bugs have been found and corrected for.
