Many bug fixes and some new features.

Most visible feature this time is the possibility to include the sequencer in the bottom of the mixer. This is a convenient feature if you have two screens and want to dedicate one screen for the editor and use the other screen for everything else. Notice the new "S" button:

Another notable feature is latency compensation when recording audio from the sound card, a feature that should have been implemented a long time ago:

And finally, there is a new GUI to edit keybindings. Select "Edit keybindings" in the Help menu to open:

Changes 6.3.84 -> 6.4.76:
* MacOS: More fixes for the sequencer graphics not
  always being updated after resizing.
* Windows: Fix incorrect error message sometimes
  popping up about wrong number of bytes written to
  disk.
* Keybindings: Add GUI to edit keybindings. Select
  "Edit keybindings" in the Help menu to open.
* Mac/Editor: Fix mouse pointer sometimes behaving
  weirdly if moving outside the edges while editing.
  (Just turned off window edge-handling for mac.)
* FaustDev: Improve line number margin width in the
  text editor.
* Demo songs: Clean up mixer object positions in the
  Romance song.
* FaustDev: Use fixed-width (mono-sized) font in the
  code editor.
* Audio: Fix inaccurate latency values when the
  sampler player or seqtrack plugin has audio inputs.
  Since audio is not normally sent through these two
  instruments (the input connectors are mainly used
  for recording audio only), we don't usually want
  input latency added to the output latency.
* Sequencer: Show time under mouse cursor in
  statusbar when mouse is in the time area and
  nothing else is currently shown in the statusbar.
* Mixer: Add popup menu for connections.
* Mixer strips: Fix the "Delete plugin ..." option in
  the popup menu.
* Instruments: Add preferences-option to enable
  Sample Seek / MIDI Chase by default when creating a
  new instrument.
* Manual: Update documentation about sample seek and
  MIDI chase. (Tooltip for the "S" button updated
  as well.)
* Instruments: Fix showing current instrument when
  undoing/redoing creating MIDI instrument.
* Mixer strips: Always show the "Set current
  instrument" entry below the "Force as current
  instrument" checkbox in the popup menu.
* Sequencer: Fix graphics not updating immediately
  after undoing stretching seqblock.
* Audio: Add latency compensation when recording from
  input connections in the sequencer and in the
  sampler instrument. Automatically determined by
  default, but it's also possible to set a custom
  value.
* Audio: Compensate for soundcard input/output
  latency when recording from system input.
  Implemented both for recording in the sequencer,
  and for recording in the sampler instrument.
* Jack: Fix connecting audio input and output for
  "System in" and "System out" instruments when there
  are both physical MIDI ports and physical audio
  ports.
* Jack: Show message during startup if connecting
  system input ports failed.
* Jack: Fix auto-connecting Jack ports when there
  both physical MIDI ports and physical audio ports.
* Jack: Fix not always working to set name of Jack
  input ports.
* GUI: Add option to put the sequencer in the bottom
  of the mixer instead of in the lower tabs in
  main window.
* Sequencer: Fix shift-right-clicking multiple
  seqblocks.
* Sequencer: Fix Shift + rightclick to delete
  seqblock. Bug probably introduced in 5.9.99.
* Sequencer: Fix various situations where the
  graphics was not updated.
* API:
  * Renamed: mainMixerIsInWindow->mainMixerInWindow,
    switchMixerIsInWindow->switchMainMixerInWindow,
    instrumentWidgetIsInMixer->instrumentInMixer,
    setInstrumentWidgetInMixer->setInstrumentInMixer,
    switchInstrumentWidgetInMixer->switchInstrumentInMixer.
  * New: sequencerInMixer, setSequencerInMixer,
    switchSequencerInMixer, sequencerInMainTabs,
    configureSequencerWidget, gui_getMixerYSplitter,
    getRecordingLatencyFromSystemInputIsAutomaticallyDetermined,
    setRecordingLatencyFromSystemInputIsAutomaticallyDetermined,
    getCustomRecordingLatencyFromSystemInput,
    setCustomRecordingLatencyFromSystemInput,
    setSeqtrackRecordCompensateLatency,
    getSeqtrackRecordCompensateLatency,
    enableSampleSeekByDefault,
    setEnableSampleSeekByDefault, gui_editor,
    gui_editorLoadFile, gui_editorSetFile,
    gui_editorSave, gui_editorFind,
    gui_editorFindNext,
    gui_editorAddTextChangedCallback
  * writeToFile: Change return type from int to bool.
    (Returns false if writing failed.)

Radium 6.4.77 released. This is an emergency release to fix a rare crash when deleting a sampler instrument that has GUI open, and to fix importing MIDI files. Note that some MIDI files are still not imported properly when using Windows. This will hopefully be fixed in a later release.

Changelog 6.4.76 -> 6.4.77:
* Autobackup: Don't create autobackup for demo songs.
* Instruments: Fix rare crash (only seen on osx) when
  deleting a Sampler instrument that has a GUI open.
* Internal: Various general checks and assertions to
  avoid crashes when deleting an audio instrument.
* MIDI: Fix import MIDI file. Note that some MIDI
  files are still not loaded when using Windows. This
  will hopefully be fixed in the next release.

For windows users: Beware that WASAPI mode is currently broken in the version of Portaudio that is included with Radium if you select "Playback only" in qjackctl. I will update portaudio when this has been fixed.
