What's new in this version:

- MIDI editor: fix setting channel dropdown
- Default theme updates, macOS font tweaks

- support fixed-lane tracks, to arrange media items in fixed lanes
- support setting individual lanes to play back or not play back
- support automatically recording overlapping media to separate lanes, either layered (multiple lanes play back at once) or not (only the last recorded lane plays back)
- v6 option for overlapping recording to create new media items is replaced by option to add lanes; playback behavior is identical to v6
- support minimizing, maximizing, or collapsing track lanes
- support adding lanes by dragging media to a hashed 'parking area', automatically removing empty lanes
- support naming individual lanes, resizing lane name area
- support reordering fixed lanes by dragging lane buttons up/down
- support targeting a specific lane or free item position when pasting media items and razor edits
- add many actions to support editing, manipulating, playing back, comping, and coloring items in fixed lanes
- add mouse modifier contexts for fixed lane header buttons, fixed lane comp areas (including click/double-click contexts)
- add many theme elements for fixed lane and comp area display
- support recording into specific lanes or new lanes
- add actions to explode items in lanes to tracks, implode items on tracks to lanes, optionally creating comp areas
- existing actions to switch active take (T/shift-T by default) will switch the comp area under the mouse up or down as well
- add import option to add multiple media on fixed lanes on a single track
- tracks that are grouped for media/razor edits are also grouped for lane actions and edits
- when exiting fixed lane view, lanes that are not playing are hidden; hidden lanes are restored when re-entering fixed lane view
- create a comping lane by double-clicking or right-clicking the lane button, or clicking the comping button on a razor edit, or using arrange view mouse modifiers
- while comping, mouse-drag in source lanes to create comp areas; comped media is copied to the comping lane
- comp areas create editable copies of source media
- mouse modifiers for comp areas include behaviors to change comp area source lane, limit comp areas to media item edges, move media items along with comp areas, attach comp area edges to adjacent comp area edges, create time selection including pre-roll/post-roll for previewing
- while comping, edits to media item edges/fades/crossfades in comping lane will also affect comp areas (comp areas fades/crossfades can be individually edited this way)
- while comping, edits that cause comping-lane media to go out of sync with source-lane media will display a re-comp button on the comping lane media
- clicking re-comp button will copy edited media to a new source lane, to use as an alternative edit along with existing source media
- optionally support editing source media while comping (edits immediately affect the comping lane)
