SongKong 6.10 Odelay Released July 23rd 2020

We are pleased to announce the release of SongKong 6.10 Odelay, named after my favourite album by Beck released in 1996.

The main purpose of this release is to introduce a brand new Windows installer, solving most installer issues.

We also remove the Izpack linux installer because this required a windowed system to run the installer and did not install desktop shortcuts properly, for now we just provide a simple tar installer that can be extracted to preferred location.

There are also a number of important bug fixes.
