MilkyTracker has been updated to version 0.90.80.

MilkyTracker is an open source, multi-platform music application for creating .MOD and .XM module files. It attempts to recreate the module replay and user experience of the popular DOS program Fasttracker II, with special playback modes available for improved Amiga ProTracker 2/3 compatibility.

This is a big release for us and we hope you’ll like it too. As usual, the new version fixes several bugs and replay issues but more interestingly, the code refactoring has resulted in two things: A) Cool new features. B) MilkyTracker is now open source (GPL). That’s right, dig in, patch, port, maintain, you are welcome to do so. Linux distributions can also now include MilkyTracker in their sofware repositories, so spread the word. We’d also like to see some quality player plugins and whatnot come out of this.
