System support

In version 4.6.0 openMHA supports Windows operating systems. Installation Instructions for compiling the software under Windows are provided.

A manual for calibration of hearing aid output was added. Octave/Matlab tools to generate an openMHA configuration according to the outcome of the calibration procedure as well as an configuration example for testing the calibration are provided.

The openMHA documentation has been updated following user feedback. In particular the hands-on example in section 4 of the application engineer manual has been simplified.

New plugins
