The latest version of OpenMPT has been released today.

This is mostly a bugfix to address bugs found in the previous OpenMPT 1.24 release, but also brings a few other improvements. These are the noteworthy improvements and changes in OpenMPT

  • Added suppport for custom pattern fonts as well as upscaled variants of the built-in fonts for High-DPI devices. Ever wanted to write a song using Comic Sans or Wingdings? Now you can...
  • Show verbose pattern effect descriptions in the status bar instead of the short versions.
  • Note-offs from past notes are no longer written when recording notes into patterns.
  • The Parameter Editor refused to work under random conditions.
  • Added new shortcuts in the sample editor to center the waveform display around loop points.
  • The previous version introduced some perceivable performance drops in the instrument editor and sample browser.
  • Vibrato and fine portamento were sometimes too weak in IT files in the previous version.
  • ProTracker-compatible tone portamento behaviour in MOD files.
  • Improved STM playback accuracy.
