The release of MIDI 2.0 promises to bring a host of ground-breaking features, along with backward-compatibility, and it even promises to bring some improvements to MIDI 1.0.
However, we must admit that many of the most powerful features included in the original MIDI spec went untouched both by MIDI controller makers and by synth developers. The catch-22 was that controller makers could say "most synths don't respond to polyAT/release-velocity/14-bit RPN/NRPN" and synth developers could say "most controllers don't produce polyAT/release-velocity/14-bit RPN/NRPN".
I'm hoping that the 2.0 spec does a rework of MPE and gets rid of that stupid multi-channel workaround.
I think the configuration handshake thing will be very useful. I can see lots of possibilities with that.
