Hi all,

After being sidetracked earlier this month with music festivals and
other things, as well as taking awhile to get Tiger up and running on my
dev machine and everything building again properly, a new beta is
finally ready!

<http://www.doggiebox.com/distribution/Doggiebox-1E11.tbz> includes the
following changes and improvements:

    ? Fixed a couple of long-standing bugs related to changing drum
kits: previously, the pattern editor would not be visually refreshed
with the new kit icons, and the previous kit's keyboard shortcuts would
illogically remain in force. These are now fixed (thanks Chris).
    ? Fixed a bug with drum keyboard shorcuts where two variants of the
same drum type but with different shortcuts could not be selected
immediately one after another (thanks Chris and Dan).
    ? Fixed a bug where tempo markings were sometimes not behaving
properly when trying to set or modify them via the inspector (thanks Charlie).
    ? Fixed a bug where the assigned tempo would sometimes drift when
repeatedly inserting new bars, if the bars were in a compound time
signature (thanks Håkon).
    ? Added a method by which to override the default beat denomination
in which the tempo is specified, as was possible in earlier versions of
Doggiebox.  To change the tempo basis for the selected bar(s), right-
click on the note icon next to the bpm field in the inspector and choose
a new note value from the pop-up menu.
    ? Fixed a bug where extra bars (or the entire song) could become
spuriously selected while making a selection with the mouse (thanks Mike).
    ? New sections are now created containing a new empty bar, rather
than nothing as before (thanks Charlie).
    ? Numeric values for MIDI properties (channel, note, velocity) in
the drum kit editor are now directly editable (thanks Carl).
    ? Rebuilt under Tiger 10.4.2; minimum required system is Panther 10.3.9.

Next up, I hope to work on fixing the copy and paste mess with respect
to bars, beats and song structure.
