Hello everyone.

There's a new release candidate tarball of the upcoming
0.5.5 release at
The full URL is:

We would apprechiate if people test compiled and test ran this candidate.
Try playing the *.bse files from test/ with beast and try running
$ bsesh myfile.bse
which should automatically start playback in console mode.
Please report any problems you encounter to

As usual, here's the list of required dependencies
to get the tarball running:

GnomeCanvas (GNOME-2.0):
Ogg/Vorbis (at least version 1.0):
MAD (BSE was developed against libmad-0.14.2):

TRANSLATORS: Beast contains mostly empty de.po files, it'd be cool
if those could be filled in the next few days (about 200 messages
to be translated), so 0.5.5 could ship with a decent initial
translation for german already. Of course other translations are
also apprechiated if people are willing to start out on them.
