145 senoner 542 <p class="default">
146     The following list shows which features have already been implemented in
147     current CVS version of LinuxSampler and what is planned to be done in
148     (hopefully) near future. If you are missing something that is not already
149     listed below, you can write a proposol to the
150     <a href="http://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/linuxsampler-devel">
151     developers mailing list
152     </a> or even better send us your patch if you have done something. Even
153     if features are listed to be planned below, it can be that it takes a
154     while until somebody finds the time to implement it. So if you have the
155     time and will to finish one of them, let us know!
