After a bit of a hiatus, the MilkyTracker team are pleased to announce a brand-new release - v1.0.0.
This release incorporates the usual bug-fixes and enhancements, as well as some major plumbing work (thanks to d0pefish) to ensure MilkyTracker will continue to run on modern systems well into the 21st Century.
Please refer to our detailed ChangeLog for details of the changes since the previous release. Head over to the GitHub release page to obtain the OSX/Windows binaries, or the source code to build your own.

Hello all - a quick update for the website, as it’s been a while and some things have changed!
MilkyTracker’s website has now been moved over to GitHub Pages alongside the source code, so that it’s easier to update and so that we don’t risk losing access to it any more. Unfortunately, our previous domain at http://milkytracker.org has been lost and the owner is unwilling to co-operate with us in having it point to the correct location.
Thankfully, our friends at TiTAN have given us a new subdomain, so please update your bookmarks to http://milkytracker.titandemo.org.
If, for whatever reason you are unable to reach us at the above address, http://milkytracker.github.io should always point you in the right direction.
Meanwhile, Deltafire and I have slowly been preparing a new release! If you can’t wait for the binaries, please feel free to check out our pending branch over at GitHub.

Please read the ChangeLog for more details.

Thanks to our friend maep, your old Tiger can now also run the new MilkyTracker. Check out the downloads. The site and documentation also got a couple of fixes and Valerio tells us the quick reference printouts will soon be up to date. So if you’re planning to print out and laminate and/or frame some PDFs, you might want to wait over the weekend.

A new year, a new release. This release contains many bug-fixes, several small additions/improvements and a change of license for MilkyTracker’s player library (MilkyPlay) from GPL to BSD (meaning you are now free to use it in your own applications/demos/games without having to release your source code. Note: the rest of MilkyTracker remains GPL).
The user manual and FAQ have also been updated.
Please read the ChangeLog for more details.

Since the release of MilkyTracker v0.90.80 as open source, new software distributions have been adopting it at a steady pace. The long-awaited Ubuntu package is also out already, and has been for a while too! Yeah, we didn’t know either for quite some time, due to a delay on the package search page we were monitoring. Other distributions that nowadays offer MilkyTracker include (but aren’t necessarily limited to) Arch Linux, Debian, Enlisy, FreeBSD, Gentoo, NetBSD and SUSE. Let us know if there’s more.
Varthall’s port for Amiga OS 4 was done in due time and we’re awaiting to hear about more positive developments from the Amiga front. Also, by request, a G3 compatible OS X version was built. “I found a new use for my old white iBook: tracking! It’s now called MilkyBook. :)”, commented satisfied user azer4.
We would like to remind people that if they’re doing something interesting with the source code, please let us know so we can spread the news. That’s about it, nothing big, but at least I got to clean up the news page a little. ;)

This is a big release for us and we hope you’ll like it too. As usual, the new version fixes several bugs and replay issues but more interestingly, the code refactoring has resulted in two things: A) Cool new features. B) MilkyTracker is now open source (GPL). That’s right, dig in, patch, port, maintain, you are welcome to do so. Linux distributions can also now include MilkyTracker in their sofware repositories, so spread the word. We’d also like to see some quality player plugins and whatnot come out of this.
You might have already noticed but with the new release, the website was also rebooted and the manual now has a comprehensive list of the effect commands with their explanations. Hoping to serve you better and all in all, provide a better MilkyTracker experience. If you’re still reading this, now would be a good time to stop and go get your copy of MilkyTracker from downloads. For more reading, check out the ChangeLog.
PS The AmigaOS port will be up in a few days.
