CHANGED

The user interface style has received a major update
The maximum height of instruments was raised to 750 pixels when set via KSP
Improved performance on certain scripts using heavy image resources

ADDED

Real numbers and advanced math functions are now available in KSP
New KSP command to enable instruments up to 1000 pixels wide: set_ui_width_px()

New KSP command to set an instrument’s color including its header: set_ui_color()

FIXED

The Transient Master effect stopped processing when there were no voices running, abruptly muting tails of other effects
The Phaser effect produced stereo signal with muted right channel when used with mono samples
Common loading time issue with commercial Libraries that was worked around by local batch re-save
Sample-rate changes would cause crackles and changes of the sound of the convolution effect
NKA files would silently fail being written to disk under certain circumstances (affected certain Libraries, like EXHALE)
Modal dialog placement was unpredictable – now everything appears on center of active display
Crash when showing the Quickload panel while having high UI activity on a Performance View
Crash on OS X when changing the latency setting right after changing the sample rate
Crash when renaming modulators under certain circumstances
Deleting MIDI CC modulators only worked on one group even when attempting it over multiple ones
Editing modulators of modulators only worked on on one group even when attempting it over multiple ones
Attempting to rename modulators across multiple groups yielded unexpected results
The memory footprint display on instrument header froze when in MASCHINE or KOMPLETE KONTROL
The UI of the mod shaper turned unusable when deleting the first or last node
Drag and drop was broken on OS X if a CD was in the drive
Changing snapshots on bigger instruments caused a parse error under certain circumstances
KSP: Parameter value strings (labels) wouldn’t be published to DAW if triggered from within the ui_control callback of textedit controls
KSP variable $EVENT_PAR_SOURCE was unreliable under certain circumstances
The Retrigger factory script would freeze notes when rate-knob was set to bar and clock was not running

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

The Modules tab from the sidebar has been removed
The font size option has been removed

KNOWN ISSUES
