LMMS: 0.4.0 Beta2 released

LMMS (Linux MultiMedia Studio) is a complete suite for digital music-production under Linux. It provides software-synthesizers, samples, full MIDI-support, FX-mixer, event-automation and much more.

LMMS 0.4.0 Beta2 fixes some critical issues found in 0.4.0 Beta1.

Detailed changes:

* improved summary-page after cmake-run
* improved drag'n'drop of controls
* made base-note of instrument-track freely automatable
* when saving paths to samples, try to make them relative in win32-version (Linux-version always had that)
