-Scheduled for release October 15th 2019.+  * Sample selection algorithm now behaves a lot better when using a small sample set. 
 +  * Error reporting has been drastically improved when loading drum-kits. 
 +  * Sample normalization option has been added.

 First of all the drumkit loader is now able to tell the user what went wrong when an error occurs.

 The dgvalidator tool inherited these same error reporting mechanisms so that now too is verbose about its findings when validating a drumkit. The dgvalidator tool inherited these same error reporting mechanisms so that now too is verbose about its findings when validating a drumkit.

 +=====Sample Normalization=====
 +A new tag ''normalized'' can now be added to the ''<sample>'' tag in the instruments. If set to true, it will apply a volume scaling to each of the sample when it is played corresponding to the input velocity of the node.
 +This feature makes it possible to create a sample containing audio files which is all normalized and still get something resembling different stroke powers based on the velocity.
 +
 +An example of how to use it:
 +<code xml>
 +<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
 +<instrument version="2.0" name="Snare">
 + <samples>
 +  <sample name="Snare-1" power="0.00985718" normalized="true">
 +   <audiofile channel="AmbLeft" file="samples/1-Snare.wav" filechannel="1"/>
 +   ...
 +  </sample>
 +  ...
 + </samples>
 +</instrument>
