What's new in version 2.251
[2.251 adds a fix for front-to-back order behavior with panels that have panel members (thanks hape!). This + Design Locks + plus Show/Hide Controls is now much easier to use, and powerful to build with.]

Welcome MIDI Designer users to our 77th update, version 2.250!

Now: go sideways, go big! This release includes Native iPad Layout Sizes and Portrait Mode for iPad. It's huge for:
• Users who want to use their iPad vertically.
• Users who have an iPad Pro 11" (new aspect ratio).
• Users who use Split View to control other iPad apps.

We're excited to see new layouts being shared with these new sizes.

Other release notes:
• Fixed data thinning for incoming NRPNs, including those coming out of the Stream Byter plugin.
• Other smaller fixes for out-of-bounds controls (finally) and killing timers in Design Mode.

Thanks!
MIDI Designer Team
