On the eighth anniversary of hexter's first public release, I am
pleased to announce the new 1.0.0 version.

hexter is a software synthesizer that models the sound generation of
a Yamaha DX7 synthesizer. It can easily load most DX7 patch bank
files, edit those patches via a built-in editor or MIDI sys-ex
messages, and recreate the sound of the DX7 with greater accuracy
than any previous open-source emulation (that the author is aware
of...) hexter operates as a plugin for the DSSI Soft Synth

Release 1.0.0 adds significant capability to hexter over the 0.6.2
release, including:

* An integrated patch editor (finally!)

* The option to use floating-point math in the synthesis code
instead of fixed-point.

* Performance optimizations.

* Better patch bank loading, thanks to Martin Tarenskeen.

* MIDI non-registered parameter (NRPN) support, thanks to Jamie
