Hmm .. Not too long ago MIDI really did not work, but I hoped I had fixed
this problem. Is your MIDI port detected in the startup messages ?

I´ve hear rumours about a serial midi driver ..

Yes, I think everybody will find that useful ...
There are a lot of documentation tasks to be done.
- The reference needs a hand (It would be great if we had the Max Alt-click
of reference. This should not be too hard to implement.)
- Of course the general manual is lacking a lot of information.
- An external programming guide would be useful too.
- Tutorials ...
- Those people doing documentation need feedback  ..

A lot of that is already there, but it´s probably still not enough for
newbies to even get the small picture.

And, of course we have to avoid duplication of effort, so the best thing would
be if
Kerry told us what he plans to do and where we (you :)) can help.

Ah .. and if you put your HTML pages online let us know ...
