Okay, I tried this new release.
* NSIS is 2.14 not latest avaible which is 2.15
* The manual now actually works (it didnt work in earlier versions), though it seems to take up much CPU, because sometimes my MP3 in background started lag/skip.
* The place where it is size/resolution/recording (bottom screen) is pink background. :(
* This version also has the Swedish language translation. :)
* It comes with many unneeded .svn directories.
* Does still not make the Hydrogen shortcut on the start-menu have an icon.
* The 'Info' menu should maybe be called 'Help' as that is what 99% of apps use.

To people;
* Many things in this version is changed, the interface has been revamped and stuff has been re-arranged. Some stuff that used to be at bottom of screen is now at top.
Some stuff is removed, some stuff is added, some stuff is changed...

Installer
* Installer uses NSIS 2.14, the latest version avaible is 2.15.
* Does not make the Hydrogen shortcut on the startmenu have an icon.

About dialog
* It says "HomePage", a better term would be "Website".
* The background-color of the "About" tab is different from the Authors and License tab. (Inconsistency)
* The text color on the "License" tab is different from the "Authors" and "About" tab. (Inconsistency)
* To add a text saying "Compiled on 9 mars 2006" might be a good idea.
* About dialog has a blank/default icon, it should either have none or the H2 one.

Debug
* It has the blank/default icon. It should have either no icon or the H2 one.
* It has a maximize button but it does not work. It is also unnescesary and should be removed.
* If every each row had a different color might be easier to read?
* "Show audio engine info" on the Debug menu should have 3 dots eg. "Show audio engine info..." to indicate a dialog gets spawned.

Yes, those are suggestions, bugs, etc. Many of them are just minor things.

I dont have any account on the Hydrogen wiki.

And I am not sure where on the wiki to put them...

Comix:
I think you should hire Eldmannen ;-) He's one of the best QA people I've ever run across: his defect reports are timely (first post 45 minutes(!) after the build drop), detailed and yet succint. If I were working HR, *I'd* give him a job...

q

BTW, in case you're wondering, I *do* actually work Software QA for a living ;-)

PS Eldmannen: Keep up the good work (it benefits all of us)!

Hi,I have a song which I want to export to wave so I can use it in my other recording programs,drum sounds are beautiful in Hydrogen, but sadly every time I try to export,it wants to export a wave file...but the song is still of course a hydrogen song file,needs to become a wav file first by being exported...am I doing something wrong?...I am a total Hydrogen newbie:-) I downloaded the windows installer and am using Vista OS...thanks for any help.
