New Settings (mostly promoted from the advanced configuration window)

- SoundFonts are loaded completely into memory for faster/smoother first instrument notes.
- Switched to the higher quality BASSMIDI plate reverb (instead of the BASS DX8 room reverb effect).
- Added Thai language support.
- Synthesia now uses the entire screen on the 11" iPad Pro.
- Fixed v-sync on macOS Mojave so CPU won't be stuck at 100% anymore.
- MIDI input outside the usual 88-key range (A0 through C8) is now ignored. This filters some of the junk events from bad MIDI adapters.
- Extremely short notes (say, from MIDI drum pads) will no longer be ignored in melody practice.
- It's now easier to assign hands and finger hints to very short notes without hunting down individual pixels.
- The Synthesia window's size and position is now saved on Windows again. (This was accidentally broken in 10.5.)
- A few performance improvements during song loading and during play.
- Fixed a dozen Android crashes and a few general crashes on all platforms.
In any event, now we're back on track. And it finally feels safe to report that I've gotten back into a proper development groove with new work being done at the same time each day, every day for the first time since my son was born (nearly three years ago now)! I'm going to go out on a limb and say that 2019 is going to finally be the year of Synthesia 11.
We're jumping right into the "Multiple Lines of Notation!" milestone from the Synthesia 11 roadmap post, next!
