This release contains some bug fixes and some minor features.

Most notable new feature this time is the new included "Radium reset" program:

The "Radium reset" program can be useful if Radium won't start, or something else is hindering usage, due to something wrong with the configuration. For instance if the colors have been set too dark and you can't see anything. The "Radium reset" program is also useful in order to use previously blacklisted plugins after you have installed a version that doesn't crash anymore.

A visible improvement this time is fixed font rendering for the manual on Windows. Text should not be pixelated anymore. Text quality should be better on macOS as well.

Another visible improvement is for the audio meter rendering which wasn't always updated each frame before, even if there was enough CPU time. Especially on macOS this was a problem.


Changes 6.6.78 -> 6.7.70:
* Instruments: Fix editing keybinding in the
  instrument effects popup menu.
* Help: Add option in preferences to let the help
  windows be a standalone window.
* Plugin manager: Don't make the plugin manager
  window modal. Fixes inactive messages window after
  scanning plugins.
* GUI: Fix audio meters often not being updated each
  frame, even when there is enough CPU time.
* LADSPA: Remove TAP plugins from the regular menus.
* Macos: Show text box with info about the state of
  OpenGL during startup.
* Disk: Automatically add ".rad" suffix when saving
  song.
* Editor: Disable the bar/beat options for current
  track when current track is a timing track.
* Settings: Include "Radium reset" program to reset
  user settings.
* Manual: Make sure the same font is used on all
  platforms. Most importantly this fixes really bad
  text rendering on Windows.
* API: getTrackTypeName,
  helpWindowIsChildOfMainWindow,
  setHelpWindowIsChildOfMainWindow .

Radium 6.7.72 released. Emergency release to fix audio meter CPU usage, and stop-notes not stopping notes.

Changes 6.7.70 -> 6.7.72:
* Editor: Fix notes not being stopped when adding a
  stop note. Bug introduced in 6.6.77.
* Audio meters: Fix update interval. In 6.7.70 it was
  by mistake updated each 5ms which is too often.
