Csound 6.08

Csound 6.08 has been released!


As usual there are a number of opcode fixes and improvements, but the major changes are in the language structures. First the score language has all-new treatment of macros and preprocessing, bringing it in line with those of the orchestra. The parsing of the orchestra has had a number of fixes as outlined below.

A major, and not totally compatible change as been made in reading and writing array elements. The rate of the index now often determines the time of processing; check the entry below under Orchestra. This simplifies much code and seems to capture expectations; the earlier ad hoc code had many anomalies.

Also as usual there are a number of new opcodes and internal fixes to memory leaks and more robust code.
