What's New

• Adds "Note Filter" customization to Note Identification, Note Construction, Reverse Keyboard Identification, and Fretboard Note Identification.
• Removes ‹Allow Basic› option from "Accidentals" customization (this functionality is superseded by the new Note Filter).
• Changes the behavior of answer button visibility in Note Identification. Visibility is now tied to the "Note Filter" customization. Previously, the top and bottom rows would be hidden when "Accidentals" was ‹Off› and "Key Signatures" was set to ‹No Accidentals›.
• Adds "Display Mode" to Interval Identification and Interval Construction, allowing the selection of melodic intervals.
• Adds ‹Letters (Fifths)› options to "Note Names" customization in Key Signature Identification.
• Replaces "Difficulty" in Fretboard Interval Identification with "Placement" and "Distance Limit". This allows finer-grain control over generated fretboard positions.
• Fixes an issue where "Labels" wouldn't appear in the Progress Report of fretboard exercises.
• Fixes an issue where Reveal Answer would unhide and highlight inactive buttons.
