Subject: [ecasound] development release: 2.1.0

Unlike Linus I'm not going to delay opening the development series. :) So
here's the first one - 2.1.0. Packages available at http://eca.cx/ecasound
- CVS-tree is tagged with 'v2_1_0'. I'm not making any rpm packages just
yet. I'll start making them when we get closer to v2_2 (and that's a long
time - I don't want to break library interfaces all the time).

And it's good to remember that this is a development release and should be
considered as unstable. ECI-apps that work with 2.0.x should work with
2.1.x. Apps like ecawave and ecamegapedal which use libecasound directly
won't even compile.

If you to test with this new release, but still keep an stable version of
ecasound installed, you can do the following:

tar zxvf ecasound-2.1.0.tar.gz
cd ecasound-2.1.0
./configure --prefix=/home/user/ecasound-2.1 --disable-pyecasound
make install
ln -s /home/user/ecasound-2.1/bin/ecasound /usr/local/bin/ecasound_21

... you should be able to run both 'ecasound' (the old ecasound) and
'ecasound21'. Same thing can be used for CVS-builds. Note! If you enable
pyecasound, 'make install' will overwrite the old pyecasound module in
python's site-packages directory.
