Rui Nuno Capela
Hello everybody,

A new batch of 'QStuff*' is here: QjackCtl [1], Qsynth [2], Qsampler
[3], QXGEdit [4], QmidiCtl [5] and QmidiNet [6], all bumping a notch to
**version 0.9.1** for the (boreal) Winter'21 season.


** QjackCtl - JACK Audio Connection Kit Qt GUI Interface [1] **

   QjackCtl 0.9.1 (winter'20) is released!

QjackCtl is a(n ageing yet modern, not so 'simple' anymore) Qt [7]
application to control the JACK [8] sound server, for the Linux Audio

Change-log:
- Graph Disconnect now applies to all selected ports and connections.
- Main window is now freely resizable, while keeping all the buttons
stretched to the same aspect ratio.
- Warning to confirm application close is now back in business when
functioning as client only (Active).
- Graph items are automatically raised when created or high-lighted
(incremental z-value).
- Add a little but straight horizontal line-gap to the Graph connections.
- Customize the Graph zoom slider widget to reset upon mouse
middle-button click.
- Add Clear preset button to Setup dialog.
- Use default values for most preset parameters: sample rate,
frames/period (aka. buffer-size), periods/buffer, realtime priority,
port maximum, client timeout, word length, wait time, channel maximum.
- Early preparations for the New Year develop(ment) cycle.

** QmidiCtl - A MIDI Remote Controller via UDP/IP Multicast [5] **

   QmidiCtl 0.9.1 (winter'20) is released!

QmidiCtl [5] is a MIDI remote controller application that sends MIDI
data over the network, using UDP/IP multicast. Inspired by multimidicast
[15] and designed to be compatible with ipMIDI [15] for Windows.
QmidiCtl [5] was long ago designed for the Maemo [17] enabled handheld
devices, namely the late Nokia N900 [18] and promoted to the Maemo
Package [18] repositories. Nevertheless, QmidiCtl [5] may still be found
effective as a regular desktop application and recently as an Android
application as well.
