What's new?
  • Updated Esperanto, Portugese and Turkish translations to the users manual.
  • Updated Spannish and Turkish messages.
  • Distribute solfege/tests/lesson-files/*.
  • help/C/scales/modes.html are never translated. So we must link to the C-locale file in every translation.
  • gettext tweaks to make the test suite work both when run as "" and " test_lessonfile".
  • There is still something wrong because we have to disable the test to run debuild.
  • Distribute solfege/tests/lib/* and solfege/test/include/*.

Oops! Meant to write "horizontal", not "vertical" alignment; i.e., the chords are sometimes slightly to the right of the melody note on which they're supposed to start.

Y'z Dock is a program launcher that looks like the dock in Mac OS X. To add icons, drag-and-drop a file from Explorer to the dock area. To delete icons, drag-and-drop the icon out of the dock. To remove a separator, press [Ctrl] plus drag-and-drop the separator out of the dock. Right-click on the dock gives you the context menu. Y'z Dock supports relative paths, though it does not automatically use relative paths when you add a file.

I use RKLauncher. I THINK it picks up where Y'z left off. It's still being developed as far as I know, but it hasn't been updated since I started using it a year ago. It supports relative paths too, but doesn't use them by default.
