## 2021-07-15 2.2.0
Add status bar to explain possible user actions (like "use shift + mousewheel to transpose measure")
Streamline mousewheel behaviour in song editor. It now always scrolls without shift / alt key, no more accidental transpositions.
Add non-destructive step delay for individual measures. Shift an individual measures forwards or backwards in time, within the boundaries of the measure.
Add track-switch to choose step-delay wrap-around behaviour, if delayed notes end up outside the pattern
Add non-destructiv pattern augmentation/scaling. Make an individual measure shorter or longer overall, with the same GUI as transpositions.
Add track-switch to choose repeat-to-fill behaviour if scaling a pattern shorter, which creates empty space.
Change user input to choose above measure modifications. Everything is now accesible by shortcuts, removing the functionality from the mousewheel.
Fix missing undo for measure modifications after delete.
Fix wrong playback cursor speed.
Fix small GUI drawing issues
Changelog reformating. Meta meta :)
## 2021-02-15 2.1.0
Full Undo/Redo
Add track groups, which double as midi bus. This enhances overview for more complex projects.
Add option to follow the playhead in pattern view (or not), required by the much longer patterns. Also better scrolling and playhead is always visible now.
Add option to change the midi channel for a track in the tracks context menu.
Add switch group places to song-structure context menus.
Add View-Menu with options to maximize the two editor areas.
Add advanced feature for a global rhythm offset, meant for Jack-Transport. Allows the whole piece to begin later on the jack-timeline.
## 2021-01-15 2.0.0
Big new features increase the MAJOR version. Old save files can still be loaded.
The new features integrate seamlessly into the existing workflow:
Tracks can now have different pattern lengths, allowing much more complex music. Added multiplication-widget next to track name.
Each individual Pattern can now have any number of pitches (was fixed to 8 pitches)
Loop range can now contain multiple measures. Added GUI control next to loop button. Reminder: Looprange is for trial&error, not for production.
A swing slider for subgroups 2 and 4 is now available for that 90s Dance Feeling.
Added 'Chords'-Track to the new/empty file.
Remove Nuitka as dependency. Build commands stay the same.

New context option for track labels: Replace pattern with one from other track
Streamline existing context menu options for measure groups
New context options for measure group: duplicate and clean transpositions

Set default drums track for new projects to use GM Drum note names and start with a good scale
Use Median Velocity for new notes, not average.
Remove global jack transport stop on normal program exit
Reactivate OpenGL acceleration
Submenus now have OK and Cancel buttons, not only shortcuts.
Provide icons in all common sizes
Various bugfixes and cosmetical changes.
## 2019-07-15 1.3.0
Add "Invert Row" to pattern context menu, if clicked on a step.
Add "Clear Row" to pattern context menu, if clicked on a step.
Add powerful "Fill row with sub-pattern until this clicked-on step" to quickly repeat short snippets. (Pattern context menu, if clicked on a step)
Add Alt+MouseWheel to change the velocity of an entire row in the pattern.
Changing the scale (e.g. with the mousewheel in a note pitch selector) during playback now has an immediate audible effect.
Update documentation.
Remove strict Non Session Manager enforcement. Instead present a session directory chooser on startup, similar to --save.
Remove videos from git repository for easier download and distribution. Videos are now only hosted on, but could be downloaded by users.
Compilation without executable stack, a security risk.
