Bug fixes

     - UI should no longer freeze when editing note properties.
     - UI should no longer freeze (as much) when changing voicebank in song properties.
     - Fixed concurrency bug that was causing timing errors in rendered output.
     - Defaults to 125.0 BPM when reading a UST with an unreasonably large tempo.

Any user-requested feature that didn't make it into this update will be included in the 0.5 and 0.6 updates later on!

 

Future plans:
    Kind of burnt out after this update, so i may take a break from coding for a month or two. After that, the next planned features are:

- Fixing inefficiencies and data leaks so Utsu is faster and doesn't eat up so much RAM.
   - User preferences editor, including color customization.
   - Built-in tools such as bulk editor, reclist converter.

 

Let us know what you think and what you have found in this Ver. As always, you can drop them in the comment section here, UTSU utaforum thread, or this form.
    See you in the next release!!
