Update Information:

This is a bug fix release that addresses a few of those annoying problems that hang around for the longest time, because they are rather complicated to fix. The most notable of these is that nine years after the first complaints, we have FINALLY found some sensible way to handle tied notes in the matrix and notation editors. We really painted ourselves into a corner with our design, and we scratched our heads for years just trying to come up with some plan of attack for this one. In the end, what we did was address the problem by modifying the behavior of selections to treat chains of tied notes as an unbreakable whole, instead of as separate links in an easily broken chain. This behavior is quite different, but it seems to be working  rather well.

The splash screen photo shows a winter scene from Michael's rose garden on Christmas Day, 2010, five days before Michael's beloved black labrador retriever died from complications arising from canine epilepsy.

Bug Fixes

* Track numbers are no longer cut off

* The notation and matrix editors now treat a series of tied notes as though it were a single unit, which fixes several problems that have been outstanding since as far back as 2002

* Resizing a segment via click and drag near the edge or with the resize tool now leaves that segment as the selected segment

* When attempting to select a note by clicking toward the extreme edges of the note head, it is less likely that you will move the note instead of merely selecting it

* Insertion / Playback pointer correctly advances in Notation editor when entered notes are split and tied

* Progress dialogs tweaked to fine tune their behavior

* Alt+PgUp and Alt+PgDown now highlight the events in a segment in Notation view consistently

New Features

* The matrix editor represents tied notes with a different fill pattern

* The split-and-tie long notes option has been made the factory default once more, in light of the vastly improved handling of ties in the matrix and notation editors
