CFP, Beast Release 0.7.8

If you are interested in Free Software and like to tinker with interesting
projects and technologies, the Beast project needs your input. Everyone

use case discussions. Please see the website:

Christmas left a lot of time to have a run on a number of ancient quirks
with the Beast code base. A number of orphan fixes are incorporated and
the entire code base is ported to compile as C++11. This opens up the
door for some UI, scripting and middleware improvements that have been
in the queue for too long already. Before we get to that, here's what's
probably the last release of the 0.7 branch with all its glory fixes.

Let us know what issues you run into, we take every complaint you
encounter, from UI hurdles to stability issue or regressions with old BSE

Beast is a music composition and modular synthesis application released
