Hi everyone!

This is the production release of the 1.3.X beta builds. This is a big
release which adds Drum parts, custom chords, and many other
tweaks and updates. There is a description of the new features in
the next post, as well as a full set of release notes from the beta builds.
But also, there is a newly updated manual, which you can download here:

There are 4 completely new pages, two for Chord & Drum Parts,
and one each for the Dashboard and Tips & Tricks. There are also
some updates to the pages for Sequence Controls, Chance Ops and Sub-Sequencers.
