Enter the Mainframe in the latest soundStrider alpha! Other changes include improvements to the pulse palette, world generation, and binaural modeling.

This version also delivers a new user manual and experimental builds for macOS and Linux users. Please let me know if you encounter any issues with running the game on those platforms.
