What's new in Giada 0.9.3:

  • Several GUI improvements — resizable columns, better column handling mechanism, many graphical glitches fixed;
  • upgrade to FLTK 1.3.3;
  • support for MIDI devices without Note Off message — some controllers use a different Note Off technique: they send a Note On with velocity at 0 or 127. Now Giada can understand it, thanks to the brilliant work of our friend blablack;
  • many bugs fixed and internal improvements.
