We have decided to change the platform this website is running on from Drupal 7
to a static site generator. Drupal is an impressive piece of software, but it
grows bigger and bigger and is way beyond what we need for our website. While
Drupal 7 is still supported with security updates, upgrading to the latest
version would most likely be a lot of work for little gain.
Hence we converted the page into a statically generated website. The only
observable difference for visitors should be that as a result, the ability to
comment on news articles is lost, and old comments were not transferred to the
new site. While it would be technically possible to add support for comments, we
believe it is not worth the effort, and you are welcome to discuss OpenMPT news
on our forums instead.
If you have any issues with new OpenMPT releases, you can also report them on
the issue tracker.
For more than a year, we have only brought you little bugfix updates to make OpenMPT 1.28 more stable and improve some details, while working on OpenMPT 1.29 at the same time. It took us way longer than expected, but now we are finally proud to release this new milestone, and it brings a great number of new features, improvements and bugfixes.
Here is a short summary of the most notable new features:

have been worked on in the previous months (improved MED and SFZ support among
others), so we would like to give the release a bit more time and ensure it has
the usual quality. However, some of the changes that have been done since
Christmas have now been wrapped up in an
OpenMPT 1.28 update:
