Description of problem:
Fedora packages an unusable and obsolete version of Denemo. I've compiled and tested the latest version - 0.8.18 - and that should be made available on Fedora, ASAP.
http://denemo.org/index.php/Get_Denemo states "Some
Distributions provide Denemo-packages. Mostly they are not up-to-date.
Don't use a version below 0.8.10. " Fedora packages 0.8.4-3 which is a "don't use version" according to the developers.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run dememo 0.8.4-3
2. it has bugs and the developers say not to use versions < 0.8.10
3. run denemo 0.8.18 -- it has fewer bugs.

Here are my notes on compiling and testing the latest Denemo release on Fedora, posted to Linux-Audio-Developers list: http://lalists.stanford.edu/lad/2010/07/0129.html
my tests of 0.8.18 in fedora 13 indicate that it often freezes on startup. I have filed upstream bug reports on this. I consider freezing on startup a show stopper.
Also my previous testing of 0.8.16 had issues with default command set(fixed in 0.8.18).
denemo-0.8.18-2.fc12 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 12.
denemo-0.8.18-2.fc12 has been pushed to the Fedora 12 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
