Fedora Update Notification

Name        : qjackctl
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 0.3.7
Release     : 1.fc14
URL         : http://qjackctl.sourceforge.net
Summary     : Qt based JACK control application
Description :
Qjackctl is a simple application to control the JACK sound server daemon,
specific for the Linux Audio Desktop infrastructure. It provides a simple GUI
dialog for setting several JACK daemon parameters, which are properly saved
between sessions, and a way to control the status of the audio server daemon.
With time, this primordial interface has become richer by including a enhanced
patchbay and connection control features.

Update Information:

* Session widget has session save type preserved as well.
* Connections and the new Messages/Status widgets now have their last open tab preserved across program run-cycles.
* Connections and Patchbay widgets have been finally given up on an old feature request: an Expand All items button.
* A significant UI layout has been made: the Messages and Status widgets were merged into one, giving space to the brand new Session wigdet to be easy accessible from the main panel control window.
* libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase, as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13, Debian 6. (closing bug #3050915).
* Input/Output latency options were missing but now finally enabled for the firewire back-end.
* General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
* Avoid pre-loading a stalled patchbay definition filename and its nagging error on startup (fixes bug #3017078).
* Client connection retrial logic scrapped. Being a leftover from early ages, when machines were slower and JACK server startup times were longer... now, if it can't connect first time as client, it will tear down the server whether it's starting up still or not at all. (cf. Setup/Settings/Start Delay for the rescue).
* Server name is finally part of the server settings presets, thanks to Fons Adriaensen for the heads-up.
* As a workaround regarding issues switching jack2's backends, Robin Gareus sends us yet another D-Bus metho slot: "preset", (dbus-send --system / org.rncbc.qjackctl.preset string:PRESET). Thanks again.
* Another D-Bus interface slot makes it through implementation: "quit" (eg. usage: dbus-send --system / org.rncbc.qjackctl.quit). Besides, there's also these new JACK session management actions which were being overlooked as well: "load", "save", "savequit" and "savetemplate" are also available as D-Bus method slots.
* Make sure that Patchbay socket names are unique when adding or copying, fixing previous patch by Dominic Sacré.
* JACK version is now being shown on the About box (jack2).
* Slight Connections widget behavioral change: (dis)connecting a client (from) to one single port, (dis)connections will be applied in sequence from (to) all client output ports to (from) as many input ports there are in below, one by one (satisfying a 5 year old request from Yann Orlarey, thanks:).
* JACK session support is being introduced.
* Ignore first XRUN occurrence option dropped from statistics.
* Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to wrong main widget hidden state.
* Double-quotes are now being added to device names which include blank characters and were rendering invalid all command line invocation of the classic JACK server (eg. specially due for Portaudio device names on Windows).
* Transport play (rolling) status is now being guarded to avoid backfiring from extraneous transport state changes.
* General source tree layout and build configuration change.
* Italian (it) translation added (by Sergio Atzori).
* Post-shutdown script invocation logic slightly refactored in attempt to enforce its execution on application quit.
