  6. ## 2021-07-15 2.2.0
  7. Add status bar to explain possible user actions (like "use shift + mousewheel to transpose measure")
  8. Streamline mousewheel behaviour in song editor. It now always scrolls without shift / alt key, no more accidental transpositions.
  9. Add non-destructive step delay for individual measures. Shift an individual measures forwards or backwards in time, within the boundaries of the measure.
  10. Add track-switch to choose step-delay wrap-around behaviour, if delayed notes end up outside the pattern
  11. Add non-destructiv pattern augmentation/scaling. Make an individual measure shorter or longer overall, with the same GUI as transpositions.
  12. Add track-switch to choose repeat-to-fill behaviour if scaling a pattern shorter, which creates empty space.
  13. Change user input to choose above measure modifications. Everything is now accesible by shortcuts, removing the functionality from the mousewheel.
  14. Fix missing undo for measure modifications after delete.
  15. Fix wrong playback cursor speed.
  16. Fix small GUI drawing issues
  17. Changelog reformating. Meta meta :)
  18. ## 2021-02-15 2.1.0
  19. Full Undo/Redo
  20. Add track groups, which double as midi bus. This enhances overview for more complex projects.

  23. Add switch group places to song-structure context menus.
  24. Add View-Menu with options to maximize the two editor areas.

  30. Each individual Pattern can now have any number of pitches (was fixed to 8 pitches)
  31. Loop range can now contain multiple measures. Added GUI control next to loop button. Reminder: Looprange is for trial&error, not for production.
  32. A swing slider for subgroups 2 and 4 is now available for that 90s Dance Feeling.
  33. Added 'Chords'-Track to the new/empty file.
  34. Remove Nuitka as dependency. Build commands stay the same.
