OpenMPT released

This is a small update to OpenMPT 1.28, fixing a handful of issues found in the previous release and enhancing OPL support in the MPTM format:

  • Despite of announcing the opposite, builds of OpenMPT for Windows XP / Vista still did not work on CPUs without SSE2 support.
  • In MPTM, OPL notes can now be controlled (volume / pan / pitch) after they have been released. Note Cut (^^^) now really cuts OPL notes, use === to release them instead. For existing MPTM files, the legacy behaviour is used.
  • When initializing an OPL instrument, the undo state of the sample slot was not updated.
  • IT: Various fixes for note-off + instrument number in Old Effects mode.
  • MO3: Import IT row highlights as written by MO3 or newer. Properly import MIDI program and bank info.
  • On Wine on Linux, prefer DirectSound over WaveOut because there are still systems with winealsa.drv where WaveOut occasionally breaks. This change only affects new installations of OpenMPT.
  • MIDI Export: Pitch bend was not reset when two instruments shared a MIDI channel.
  • Possible crash when doing a portamento from an OPL instrument to an empty instrument note map slot.

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

libopenmpt has also been updated with the same playback and security fixes.
