Much of the initial part of this mini-version was done during let’s get serious. However, after coming back to it later, it became apparent that a more overarching edit and reorganization of idiophones was needed, so the second phase of this work involved linking existing and creating new idiophone instruments and organizing them.
Many of the tickets in this version were created or improved by students during GCI ’18. Many thanks to our students George Omnet and Jayant Dharwadkar, especially!
MiniVersion Clapper tree
[INST-630] – Rearrange idiophone tree (was: Create clapper tree)
Thanks in great part to the new How to Add Instruments guide, we now had a framework to better objectively review inclusions of instruments. Following that, these instruments were found to be either not applicable (noisemakers not intended for music as such, rather than musical instruments) or to be too much of a novelty instrument:
Closed as not applicable / Reopen if/when musical use is demonstrated
The improvement of the idiophone section isn’t completely done however! Some more work is needed: moving and/or renaming the “tuned percussion” instrument (which is basically equivalent to the “percussion struck idiophones” in Hornbostel-Sachs already anyway) and (possibly) getting rid of “metallophone” (which is almost a duplicate of tuned percussion in function today, and that in meaning is basically just “idiophones made of metal”), which doesn’t seem necessary anymore.
We expect to release a new stable Picard version in few days.
Very few translatable strings changed since last version, so it would be great if active translators could translate those before the release.
Hi everyone! As you might remember, our last post was the end of a series of entries meant to summarize everything that had happened in instrument-land so far. So now that catching up is done, here’s what has happened lately!
More bugs fixed, that’s our wish for 2019! Additionally, this release comes with usual update of URL handlers and a heap of code being rewritten behind the scenes. Thanks to Jaykin for the patch he wrote during GCI. Thanks to culinko, drsaunde, jesus2099, johnlinp, jrv, outsidecontext, silentbird, thomasboehm, zastai for having reported issues. The git tag is v-2019-01-22.
