What's new in this version:

- This update fixes a critical usability issue affecting AZERTY keyboard users. The shift modifier key can now be used to trigger number keys, enabling note durations to be changed using the default shortcuts.
- This release also improves CPU performance when using Muse Sounds, and resolves a number of playback bugs associated with repeats

Additional fixes:
- Playback now falls back to MS Basic if SoundFonts are missing
- Volume levels of MS Basic are now better balanced between note input and playback modes
- An issue preventing instrument names from being deleted from beginning of staves has been resolved
- Fixed a bug where synthesizers incorrectly defaulted to the piano sound
- Fixed a crash preventing certain scores with hidden clefs from opening
