  • aubio support (mandatory dependency)
  • customizable layout
  • many bugfixes
  • ueberstyle ("--ueber" CLI switch)

When compiling Aubio, you should edit pitchdetection.h and rename 'bin' to 'abin' to prevent a conflict with Qt's bin function. This will soon be fixed.


Added Aubio support

I have added in the CVS the patches sent to me by Piem. Those, among other things add the Aubio support, which allows Freecycle to have 4 (four!) new outstanding beatmatching algorithms.

Please get Aubio at

Standing ovation to Piem!


Added new blender files

I have added (CVS) the blender files for the new widget style which will gradually replace the widgets in Freecycle. To test these new widgets (only the slider and incomplete scrollbar, for now) activate the UeberStyle in the main.cpp.
