The latest version of OpenMPT has been released today.

This is mostly a bugfix update for OpenMPT 1.26, addressing new and old bugs and improving existing functionality:

  • In the pattern tab, remember channel transpose amount also after closing the tab.
  • When making an order list selection using the keyboard, do not update the play position.
  • Changing the plugin of a PC event via the Note Properties didn't update the parameter list in that dialog.
  • Pattern transitions were executed too early if a pattern loop ended on the last row of a pattern.
  • Dragging a single pattern with "Follow Song" enabled could modify the dragged pattern selection on pattern transitions.
  • Duplicating patterns did not apply the original pattern's tempo swing settings.
  • Tempo swing settings were ignored when setting them to 100% for each row for a specific pattern, even if this differed from the global swing settings.
  • Allow a maximum instrument fadeout value of 32767 in MPTM, like in XM.
  • Add "Open in Explorer" to the instrument library directory context menu.
  • Insert key can now be used to insert items in the tree view (e.g. samples and instruments), Shift-Insert to duplicate them.
  • Fixed an excessive performance drop when modifying a sample or instrument in a module containing hundreds of samples or instruments.
  • Converting an XM instrument with no volume envelope to IT / MPTM now creates an envelope which instantly cuts the sample on key-off.
  • Tremolo on quiet notes was broken in OpenMPT
  • Pattern loops ending on the last row of a pattern were not executed properly in S3M files.
  • Default 8-channel mode tempo in MED files should now be imported correctly.
  • Patterns with identical contents but different time signatures were merged when choosing to remove duplicate patterns in the Song Cleanup.
  • Windows key and other special keys were always intercepted since OpenMPT

For a complete list of changes, have a look at the release notes and the full version history.

libopenmpt has been updated as well with the same module loader fixes.
