Still alive...

I have not exactly been flooding you with updates lately, so I guess I should reassure everyone that I am in fact still working on this software.
Version 2.0 is moving along, albeight terribly slowly. I've built a GUI toolkit for a resizable modern (-ish) interface and I think I have the general layout of the new UI finalized. Now I just have to code all the interface features from version 1.0 (again!) and all the new ones you want as well.

Without further ado, here are some previews of 2.0 alpha:

New UI features:
  • Resizable
  • Foldable panels
  • Full, unlimited undo
  • Keyboard shortcuts for edits and operations
  • Popup help
  • Internal drag&drop of sound items
  • Better items listings for better overview
Internally, the layout is skin-managed, which means that sooner or later there will be skinning support as well, even though it is not my highest priority. 

So this looks sweet, does it not?

Well, now for the bad news: without going into details, my work situation has taken a turn for the worse, with the startup I've been active in trying to get flying finally going belly-up. The end result might be that I'll have less time to spend on finishing this, and more on trying to make ends meet. Not sure. In any case, it will be some time before this even reaches beta stage.
I hope you remain patient. And buy a T-shirt to show your support.

Happy sampling!
