[Csnd] CsoundQT install instructions

I was just wondering whether users can find step-by-step install instructions for CsoundQT,
as in “first install Csound from …”, "then download the latest CsoundQT from …”
I might have missed this, as when you google CsoundQT you get a download page which
points to the github release, but it does not say there what you need to do. Maybe
some instructions at the top of the release notes?

I mean, it’s not difficult for someone who knows, but it might be confusing for
new users.

Victor is absolutely right.

yes. i just looked into the floss manual at The Csound FLOSS Manual.

the first sentence is good, i think:
"CsoundQt is a frontend for Csound, so Csound needs to be installed first. Make sure you have installed Csound before you install CsoundQt; otherwise it will not work at all."

the next paragraph is outdated, as i just see. i will change it, and link to the install instructions on the CsoundQt site, once we did it.

@tarmo: please let me know off-list if you want me to do this work, or part of it.

thanks to victor for pointing to the lack of it, and thanks to amin khoshsabk for the description how to install on windows.

if anyone has something to add or to correct, please let me know.
