    Release Notes: This release moves to using the portable RtMidi library for all MIDI access, which runs on Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X. It should now be a small step to get EWItool running on Mac OS X. A useful function to export a single patch to a .syx file has been added, which should aid patch sharing and interoperability with other programs; naturally, there is a complementary new function to send a .syx file to the EWI. There are many code cleanups and minor enhancements.
