Useful to preview different song structures (i.e. non-linear play) and apply them via the command "Crop project to playlist".

Manage several playlists: top left dropdown box and tiny plus/minus buttons. Playlists are saved in project files.
Note: the play preview is based on "smooth seeking" so regions are played until the next measure (start positions of regions do not matter). Croping a project to a playlist will respect regions boundaries, of course.

Due to a change in the way S&M.ini file is managed, you may face some issues when switching between SWS official <-> SWS beta.
Well, a clean upgrade is automatically managed when SWS official -> SWS beta, but you'll probably loose your FX Chains setup when switching back to SWS beta -> SWS official.
So a backup of the "official" S&M.ini might be a good idea (or sticking with the beta as the new S&M.ini format won't change).

Short changelog:

Changelog details:

Added S&M Resources window
The "FX chains" view turned into a "Resources" window: FX chains + Track templates + goodies
The same features that exist for FX chains are now available for track templates too. A cool thing now is that we can patch existing tracks with track templates (and not only  "add track template as new track"). Well, some other sort of snapshots..
Also, saving track templates and FX chains is eased thanks to the "auto-save" feature, see below. A new feature "Auto-fill" also allows creating slots automatically.
Bonus: check out Tallisman's awesome FX Chain library, here!

Updated SWS Autocolor view: now also features auto track icon (the view has been renamed into "SWS Auto Color/Icon"), demo here.
Rmk: your current color configurations will be preserved when upgrading..

S&M Notes/help view updates:
Remark: here's an anim showing how to use notes, action help & online help

S&M Live Configs updates:

S&M Cue buss:

S&M house cleaning:

Other S&M updates/fixes:
