The QStuff* Autumn'19 Release

Rui Nuno Capela
Hello there!

It's coming true: the old bunch of Qstuff*, QjackCtl [1], Qsynth [2],
Qsampler [3], QXGEdit [4], QmidiCtl [5] and QmidiNet [6], are all
catching up and aligning to the magical version 0.6.0 :)

That's all pretty much and enough for now ;)...


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

  QjackCtl 0.6.0 (autumn'19) is out!

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
[12] infrastructure.

Change-log:
- Graph: avoid self-connecting over their own ports when client nodes
are selected as a whole group; also try to match port-types in a orderly
fashion when connecting multiple selected ports.
- Changing current JACK buffer size from Setup dialog (cf. Settings /
Frames/Period) may now take effect just immediately ;)
- An 'Apply' button as been added to the Setup dialog; ask whether to
restart the JACK audio server, if any settings are changed.
- Added alternate yet non-official CMake build option.
- Fix HiDPI display screen effective support (Qt >= 5.6).
- Command line arguments (--start, --preset=[label] and
--active-patchbay=[path]) are passed and take effect on the current
singleton/unique application instance, when enabled and already running.
- System-tray icon context menu has been refactored to be exactly the
same as the main-window context menu that is re-instantiated on demand.
- Make sure compiler flags comply to c++11 as standard.


** Qsynth - A fluidsynth Qt GUI Interface [2] **

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

  QmidiCtl 0.6.0 (autumn'19) is out!

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.

Change-log:
- Populate automatically the network interface combo-box with detected
interface names (after merge request by plcl aka. Pedro
López-Cabanillas, while on qmidinet).

the Qt5 framework as far as needed to support IPv4 and IPv6 seamless and
interchangeably.
