Mozart version 9 with service packs installed.
The updated program reports itself as Mozart 126.96.36.199,
and functions as well as the 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 version (Gold)
As of Oct 31, 2009 Mozart's latest version is Mozart 10
Please see the results for Mozart 10
No regressions--all functions work as with 1.0-rc1
What does not
Help file functions do not work smoothly, a third party *.chm viewer
gives better results
What was not tested
Input with MIDI keyboard/instrument was not tested.
No regressions in Mozart functions. The latest versions of Wine show great improvement in rendering the native Mozart help files, but "Help" in Mozart is still "buggy" Until all help functions work, those using KDE may wish to use Kchmviewer to access Mozart's help files. The files are located in the Mozart9 directory named Mozart32.chm, orderforms.chm, etc.

For the note entry echo to function properly, MOZART *REQUIRES* a software or hardware synthesizer
recognized by WINE/ALSA, and selected in the MOZART menu: Global preferences | MIDI port. Timidity++ in
server mode works well for this; so does Jack/Fluidsynth. Without a true synth port, it is possible to select
MIDI input and MIDI output ports that cause an I/O feedback. This can cause a note to automatically
and repetitively enter itself over and over, making the program un-usable and un-closeable without killing
WINE from a console. Thus:
$killall -9 wineserver
$killall -9 winedevice.exe
To avoid this condition, do not select "wine MIDI mapper" as a MIDI output port, do not enable MIDI in, and
for overkill, mute the selections under: Global preferences | MIDI echo.
Or just use Timidity++
