Another small update for OpenMPT 1.27 containing mostly bugfixes and some small improvements has been released today. Most importantly, this update fixes a bug where importing soundfont instruments into IT / XM files accidentally enabled the volume envelope's release node. Since the release node is an MPTM-specific feature, but could still be saved in such files for legacy purposes, the saved IT / XM files could sound vastly different when played in other software. You are strongly encouraged to to update if you make frequent use of SF2 and DLS instruments. The following other things have changed:

For more than a year, we have only brought you little bugfix updates to make OpenMPT 1.26 more stable and improve some details, while working on OpenMPT 1.27 at the same time. Now it is finally time to release it, and it brings a great number of new features, improvements and bugfixes.
Here is a short summary of the most notable new features:
According to the changelog, the first alpha version of ModPlug Tracker was released on September 19, 1997. While we still have not been able to track down this exact version (the earliest we have is MPT 1.0 alpha 5), it surely is a remarkable milestone in history, being one of the earliest trackers on the Windows platform, and certainly the oldest Windows tracker still being developed very actively.
For those of you who are wondering what might be coming next, the next big milestone, OpenMPT 1.27, is now feature-complete and will be released once a bit more testing has been done. We have worked on it for about a year and only backported some smaller improvements and bugfixes to OpenMPT 1.26 during that time, but now you can finally expect some new and exciting features including VU meters for instrument plugins in the pattern editor, fading from and to arbitrary values other than 0%, better accessibility for visually impaired users, improved resampling accuracy, support for SFZ instruments, much improved MIDI import, a special resampler mode for Amiga modules to faithfully emulate the Amiga soundchip, a new LFO plugin to control parameters of other plugins and countless other things. Stay tuned!
Happy Birthday, ModPlug Tracker!
The latest version of OpenMPT has been released today.
This is a quick bugfix to address a single issue introduced in the previous version: Changing the octave of a note below middle-C no longer worked as intended.
