This version finally brings a long-awaited feature to life : remote file management ! By default sessions will now be saved and opened directly on the server’s filesystem. Besides streamlining the editor’s workflow, this allows a few other neat things such as having the session’s name in the window’s title, being able to easily fork a session (“save as”), and last but not least the new
file input widget, as suggested by @jyg.
With great power comes great responsibility: be sure to set the
--remote-root options to limit read/write permissions if your network is not secure.
Windows users should be pleased with this other change: the python library required for MIDI support has been replaced with one that does not require Visual C++ to install. Thanks to Christopher Arndt’s python-rtmidi, all you’ll need to do to get MIDI running will be:
# uninstall the old rtmidi pip uninstall rtmidi # install the new one pip install python-rtmidi # profit !
