A lot of changes once again. Hopefully this improved support
for external packages will make qtecasound more usable at
the moment... I chose snd and emacs as the default editors,
but as always, I'm open to suggestions... ;) There're some
promising wave editors out there, but none of them offer the
same kind of reliability as does snd... And, oh yes, real
musicians do it all in emacs. >;)

Btw; Does anyone know what has happened to linux-audio-dev mailing
     list? For some time now, I haven't been able to send messages
     to the list during...

Changes since last development release (1.5.6r5):

020999 (v1.5.7r5)
        - added: qtecasound - chainsetup window now has a wave-edit
                 button which loads the active file into a external
                 wave editor; defaults to "snd", can be changed by
                 changing the value of "x-wave-editor" in
        - added: qtecasound - support for external text editors
                 (can be launched from session window) - saves the
                 active chainsetup to a text file, loads it to an
                 editor and afterwards updates file's content back
                 to ecasound - if "x-text-editor-use-getenv true"
                 is specified in ~/.ecasoundrc, ecasound uses
                 EDITOR environment variable if it's available,
                 otherwise value of "x-default-text-editor" is
                 used ... an of course, default value for this is
                 the ultimate musicians tool: emacs! ;)
        - changed: qtecasound - some minor changes to session and
                    chainsetup widgets
        - changed: .ews format (wave view cache files) has changed,
                   ecasound can still read the old format
        - changed: qtecasound - "activate" button changed to a
                   "change status" button which rotates through
                    inactive->active->connected->inactive ...
        - fixed: qtecasound - enabling/disabling chains sometimes
                 resulted in program crashes
        - fixed: all structs found in ecasound source code now
                 use the standard type definations from sys/type.h
                 (format "[u_]int'bits'_t") - this should solve some
                 compatibility problems with non-x86 platforms -
                 thanks for Guenter Geiger for notifying about these
        - fixed: a few fixes to the new double-buffering system -
                 lots of buffer parameter fine-tuning
