Release Notes: The main change in this release is a new component that can be integrated easily in any KDE program. For instance, Konqueror can play MIDI files with it. New DBus interfaces allow external control for the main program and the component. There are new and updated translations, and default shortcuts are assigned to keyboard media keys. Several fixes in the vumeter widget and all backends have been included.
Release Notes: External soft-synths can be automatically launched at startup. A new page including FluidSynth and TiMidity++ settings has been added to the "Configure kmid2" dialog. Each channel may be labeled in a text field besides each channel number. There is a new "lock instrument" button in the channels window to override the song's predefined instruments. Settings per song can be saved and automatically retrieved, including text encoding, volume, pitch, rhythm, channel labels, and fixed instruments. Many other usability enhancements are included.
