User visible improvements in this release include:
* Add timestretching for audio segments (ctrl-drag the edge of the segment)
* Add import and sample-rate conversion helper for arbitrary audio file types
* Add helpful context help to status bar in track and matrix editors
* Various improvements to the usability and friendliness of the matrix editor:
do a better job of remembering settings, make the snap-to-grid behaviour more
intuitive and pleasing, make better use of cursor changes, add quick-copy by
dragging with Ctrl pressed, fix several bugs
* Added tempo tapping to tempo dialog
* Further fixes and enhancements to Lilypond export
* New Invert, Retrograde, Retrograde Invert editing functions
* Make transport window remember its previous location
* More helpful warning dialogs on startup if something fails to start properly
This is also an interesting release from a developer perspective, because the
code has been completely reorganised into a new directory structure with a
far more consistent file naming and organisation scheme. We have also
changed the build system (again, and hopefully for the last time) from scons

It's the first release where I can't remember doing one single thing.
Well, no, I did fix a couple of trivial bugs. But still.

Those are from purely musical terminology. You can easily find the on
wikipedia or google. Not sure if "in rosegarden" tutorial/documentation
covers them, though.
Search for contemporary music or something... Musical theme, inversion,
retrograde and retrograde inversion of that theme could be found in Berg's or
Schoenberg's pieces and Serialism specifically.
Hope this helps,
