The Rosegarden team are happy to announce the release of version 1.5.0
of Rosegarden, an audio and MIDI sequencer and musical notation editor
for Linux.


This release contains a number of new features, notably audio
time-stretching support, and many usability improvements particularly
in the matrix view.

This is also an interesting release from a developer perspective,
because the source code has been completely reorganised into a new
directory structure with a far more consistent file naming and
organisation scheme.  Thanks to all involved with the project for their
hard work on this tedious business.

cmake.  Please read the README and INSTALL files before building.
Hopefully this should be the last change of this nature for the
foreseeable future.
