ROSEGARDEN 16.02, codename "Querida" RELEASED

The Rosegarden team is proud to announce the release of version 16.02 of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux.

This release fixes a major bug in the new build system, along with several other bugs. Qt 5 builds have been tested extensively, and building with either version of Qt is considered production ready as of this release.

In addition to fixing bugs, Yves has added a very nice new mouse quick entry mode to the notation editor. This feature adds a floating green preview note at the insertion point, and allows you to cycle through common note and rest durations and accidentals without moving your cursor out of the editing area.

Ted took on the big job of replacing our old MIDI THRU routing model with a whole new system that allows fine control on a track by track level. This renders the historical Studio menu routing control completely obsolete, and provides a better experience when using Rosegarden with more than one MIDI input device.

Bug Fixes

  • Fix #1486, involving interacting with the loaded document while in the middle of loading a new one
  • Fix scroll bar refresh problem after adding segments
  • Make it possible to disable LIRC, even when it's detected
  • Correct the install location of data files on certain platforms
  • Fix scrollbar problem after inserting segments
  • Fix handling of segment labels when copying/pasting segments
  • Reduce number of undo/redo events on the stack for some user actions (one action one undo instead of one action two or more undos)
  • Various tweaking and twiddling of tooltips, context sensitive help, and layout spacing
  • Fix notation editor context menu (#1492)
  • Fix notation editor crash on double middle click (#1493)
  • Fix label issue with drag copy undo. Bug #1450. Undo after ctrl+drag copy now restores the proper

label to the original segment

  • Fix Insert Controller Sequence (Bug #1478) Previously, in the NotationView, adding a controller sequence where there were no matching controller sequences would reset the start time of the segment to 0. Now it leaves the segment start time alone.
  • Fix #1478: Segments extended to the beginning after adding controller sequence
  • Fix refresh bug introduced by r14441
  • At file load time, only a single set of CCs goes out (#1480)
  • Add “Allow Reset All Controllers” to preferences. This fixes bug #1485 and is related to bug #1480
  • Fix #1504. THRU routing responds to changes in Track Parameters instantly

New Features

  • Add the capability to store any number of comments pages in the composition. This allow the translation of the notes displayed in a popup dialog when the document is loaded. The comment page whose name matches the locale language code is displayed.
  • Add a French translation to the comment embedded in lilypond-alternative-endings_new-way.rg example file.
  • When using the mouse to enter notation, you see a preview of the note that you will enter if you click the button
  • New mouse quick entry mode:
    • The mouse wheel can be used to select the note or rest duration
    • A mouse mid click switches between note and rest insert mode
    • Holding the Shift key while entering a note adds a sharp
    • Holding the Control key while entering a note adds a flat
    • Holding Shift + Ctrl while entering a note adds a natural
  • Implement track-by-track THRU routing. The Recording filters “Thru Routing” field in the Track Parameters

box is now fully functional. The Studio → MIDI Through Routing menu option has been removed.
