Version 2.0.5.2:
Bug fixes
- With the introduction of the inbuilt SoundFont editor (a version of Viena) a large number of minor and major bugs were introduced as well. (Sorry about that!!) Most of them have been removed now.

- Additionally, some bugs of older nature has been cleared.
Version 2.0.5.1:
Bug fixes
- Broken SoundFont Presets menu!
Version 2.0.5.0:
Bug fixes
- Play to file: playing to a audio in WAV format with "Normalize audio: max peak" switched on did not work.
- A large number of memory leaks has been removed.
- The Bank Manager (who also handles SoundFont Overrides) would sometimes replace the default SoundFont with one from the Overrides set.
- When playing MIDI files in a folder to audio files you could choose to skip files already converted to audio - this has not worked in the latest versions.
- Found ONE MORE MIDI file that wasn't correctly read by SynthFont2.
- In some cases, when the MIDI file contained multiple time signatures, the move events function in Pianoroll / "Edit track" did not work correctly.
- The usual range of minor bugs eliminated.

New features:
- SynthFont2 now contains a first test version of an inbuilt SoundFont editor (a version of Viena).
- You can now choose the overall pitch level - that is, the frequency of standard A (normally 440 Hz). See "Plug & Play" / "Other options". (The obsolete "Velocity to low pass filter" has been removed.)
- The "Paste copied events" function (see "Copy / Paste" in Pianoroll) now lets you paste multiple copies of the events.
Version 2.0.4.0:
Bug fixes
- Since version 2.0.3.0 the Extended Mixer page did not show anything useful.
- Changing the volume level in the Mixer during playback might cause the volume level of notes playing to increase more than intended

- Hitting SPACEBAR to start/stop playing would also toggle the state of a checkbox if it had the input focus (for example, the Play/Mute checkbox in the tracks list)
- Version 2.0.3.3 might not always identify the correct track as the Lyrics track for Karaoke
- Solved an issue with pasting copied events at a time earlier than the original position
- In Pianoroll, moving events towards the start might cause the program to become unstable
- The usual range of suspects lined up and killed.

New features:
- In Pianoroll: You can now insert whole chords in one single click. Shortcut keys: Ins=insert chord, Del/ESC=cancel, You can use the numeric keypad keys Left,  Right, Up and Down to move the chord around.
- In Pianoroll: You can now delete notes in the selected track or all tracks using the same criteria as for moving notes around.
- In Pianoroll: Copy / Paste, there are two new buttons: one to delete all selected events and one to select all events in the track. You also have more choices over which events to copy. NOTE: only the selection method based on drawing around notes will also mark all other than note events in that time frame.
- In Setup, page Files and Folders, there has for a long time been an entry called "Folder for converted audio files”. However, this value has never been used anywhere for anything. Now you have the option to ”Use as default Audio Folder ….” which means that the first time you write MIDI to an audio (any format) this folder will be offered for output in the Save Audio file dialog.

- You can now remove selected items from the SoundFont history list ("Clean up ...").
Version 2.0.3.3:
Bug fixes
- Version 2.0.3.0 introduced: the generator "overridingRootKey" was not used if defined in the global split for an instrument.
- On some computers the software would crash immediately at start-up due to an issue with the file Explorer routines.
- The usual range of suspects lined up and killed.

New features:
- You can now let SynthFont2 save Karaoke Lyrics directly in an MP3 file (only MP3!). The data is saved in a "SYLT" frame.
- A few other minor GUI improvements for you to find! (For example: in the Karaoke Lyrics window you can now set which track you think actually contains the lyrics text.)
Version 2.0.3.2:
Bug fixes
- Version 2.0.3.0 introduced bug: the two generators "fineTune" (pitch adjustment) and "sampleMode" (sample loop mode) were not used if defined in the Global split only.
- Version 2.0.3.0 introduced bug: loop in Playback Range did not work correctly: there was no sound after the first round. Additionally, the playback cursors were not correctly tracking playback position.
- Version 2.0.3.0 introduced bug: the Continuous Controller Modulation Wheel was totally out of control.
- Version 2.0.3.0 introduced a new SoundFont Presets dialog  with a virtual keyboard. At the same time some minor flaws were introduced, for example, a SoundFont Preset as saved in an arrangement might get replaced by another Preset.
- Using the inbuilt Viena editor through the dynamic library “VienaLib.dll” could cause a crash if the Preset used by a track was deleted in VienaLib.

Other
- The old Preset dialog is now completely replaced by the new one.
