I'm pleased to finally announce the availability of the latest Alpha
release of Rosegarden for Windows.

This is a working release of Rosegarden for Windows - it's still called an
Alpha release because it may well be buggy and audio file support or audio
sequencing is still not supported in any way.  The code base has been
merged with the latest Rosegarden trunk changes ("Freedom") as per 7th July
2012 but also:

  - MIDI Playback devices are now assignable (create new Midi Device and
assign tracks)
  - Most common MIDI playback events are now supported (no System
  - MIDI Record now works for most events (no System Exclusives)
  - RtMidi updated to latest version (July 2012)
  - Merges from latest trunk release (please see 12.04.00 "Freedom" release

Rosegarden for Windows is a packaged installation for 32-bit Windows which
will work on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows platforms and has been tested on
Windows XP and Windows 7.  Rosegarden for Windows packages Lilypond
printing and print-previewing out of the box.

Rosegarden for Windows Alpha 2 has had over 5000 downloads in the last nine
or so months but so far feedback has been limited - hopefully that can
change a bit with this latest, more functional release.  It would be great
to hear any feedback - good, bad or indifferent - just to work out if I
should spend any more time adding features no matter how slowly!

Please give it a try and provide me or the rosegarden-devel mailing list
with any feedback.  Thanks goes of course to all the core developers on the
Rosegarden team who are pumping out the actual features and improvements
and hopefully this version can continue to do them some justice.
