  •  20 Dec 2004 09:00

Release Notes: The most important change in this release is probably the reduced CPU consumption due to lowered scope updating priority. Very convenient are the newly added -n<nicelevel> and -N (don't renice) options. A nice bonus in this release are the FFT-based spectrographs for module output channels. The experimental PortAudio driver is new. As usual, there have been many language translation updates, in particular Canadian English, British English, Czech, Dutch, and Spanish.
