ROSEGARDEN 17.04, codename "Twice in a Blue Moon" RELEASED

The Rosegarden team is proud to announce the release of version 17.04 of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor for Linux.

The most visible change in 17.04 is that David Faure has generously replaced our very brittle and complex style system with a complete rewrite using QStyle (r14968). Ted Felix invested the past ten months grinding through bugs, and cleaning Rosegarden's code to make it more efficient and maintainable. Significant areas cleaned up include: the Track Parameters box (r14707-r14762), TrackButtons (r14765-r14770), progress dialogs (r14793-r14899), and the Audio Mixer window (r14910-r15013). Yves Guillemot and David Faure squashed a few bugs as well.
