WildMIDI switches to Subversion

WildMIDI development has switch to using Subversion on Sourceforge. This is so that previous and future versions are more readily accessable. While source still exists in the CVS it is no-longer maintained. To obtain development source please use svn co wildmidi-devel

The current development and future releases of WildMIDI are now licensed under the GNU General Public License version 3 and GNU Lesser General Public License version 3. With the increased exposure WildMIDI has gained through its inclusion into some linux distributions, it is time to update the license to reflect the developers desire to keep it free. This does not effect versions 0.2.2 of WildMIDI or earlier which will remain under version 2 of the GNU General Public License and version 2.1 of the GNU Lesser General Public License.
