A maintenance release for fluidsynth has been released.
Highlights of this release include the support of MuseScore’s vorbis compressed SF3 files. We also addressed a license issue and consistently re-licensed fluidsynth under the terms of the LGPL-2.1+. As usual there are plenty of bug fixes and a few other new features. Details can be found in the release notes:
fluidsynth has moved to https://www.github.com/FluidSynth/fluidsynth
Issues and code have already been migrated. Migrating the wiki is under way.
The move to github will hopefully make things easier for collaboration and contribution. We therefore kindly ask everyone having a custom fork of fluidsynth at github to create pull requests to bring their changes back to upstream. Meanwhile we are getting some new members into the dev team next to David, Element, Pedro and Peter. After some consolidation and planning during the next week(s) we’ll probably have a minor maintenance release later this year, so any stability improvements or bug fixes are welcome.
Also note that the old issue tracker at sourceforge has hereby become obsolete and will not be maintained any more. Please file new issues at github. Old issues were migrated from sourceforge and remain valid.
Welcome to the new FluidSynth website. After SourceForge announced that it was discontinuing the hosted Trac service, I decided it was about time to give the FluidSynth website a makeover. I added an Application Screenshots section which shows some of the applications which utilize FluidSynth. Most of the other links on the navigation menu go to SourceForge services at the moment, such as the Wiki, where all of the previous documentation resides and continues to be user modifiable. Bug and feature request tickets are now hosted on the SourceForge Ticket System. Please feel free to Contact me if you find any issues with the website or have any suggestions.
