ive made beta's for the cm 3.7.2 release available here

osx:  http://camil.music.uiuc.edu/software/grace/Grace-3.7.2-beta1-osx.zip
win32:  http://camil.music.uiuc.edu/software/grace/Grace-3.7.2-beta1-win32.zip
ubuntu:  http://camil.music.uiuc.edu/software/grace/Grace-3.7.2-beta1-ubuntu.zip
fedora:  http://camil.music.uiuc.edu/software/grace/Grace-3.7.2-beta1-fedora.zip

(not sure about the fedora exe, i had to add some libs by hand that i  
didnt have to do last decembe... i cant test because i only have  
access to fedora via terminal connection to ccrma)

many thanks to bill for adding non-signal interrupts to s7 (even works  
in with-sound -- magic, really!) and providing hooks into his random  
number generator.

o Enhancement: All random functions are now based on S7's random  
number generator. You can get and set the seed that controls CM's  
random number routines using random-seed and random-seed-set! This  
seed is also the seed for S7's default random state.

o Enhancement: The Hush command has been redefined to stop all sound  
output (not just midi) and is now situated in the top level audio menu  
along with the keyboard shortcut ⌘-K. Selecting Hush triggers the  
following actions:
   -- all processes running in the scheduler are flushed
   -- midi output message queue is flushed
   -- AllNotesOff is sent to each midi channel
   -- audio playback transport is stopped if an audio window is open  
and playing
   -- any running scheme expression is interrupted back to top level.

o Enhancement: Grace now saves the position and size of the Console  
window on Quit and restores it to the same configuration on startup.

o Enhancement: added Eval>Interrupt Scheme menu item to the Editor's  
Eval menu. Use this command to abort Scheme's current execution if the  
process seems to be taking too long or if you managed to start an  
"infinite loop" running. (Note: if the infinite loop is sending text  
output to the console then mouse and menu behavior will be very slow,  
try use the ⌘-K shortcut to abort the loop ...)

o Enhancement: Audio Playback window now supports the following  
keyboard shortcuts:
   --  Spacebar - play/pause
   --  Return - move cursor to start of file
   --  Right-arrow - move right in file
   --  Left-arrow - move left in file
   --  Command-W - close window
   --  Command-M - minimize window

o Enhancement: new instruments parse-samples and cut-samples for  
parsing samples from an audio file. See Instrument Browser window for  
more information.

o Enhancement: updated to S7 Scheme 1.83 (14-Mar-11).

o Enhancement: upgraded to latest Fomus framework (version 0.1.15).
