I have been using Ecasound for close to 11 months now, and am very pleased
with the package and the outstanding support you continue give on a daily
basis. It has been so useful to me, I would like to contribute some money to
continue your fine work. I notice that the Ardour package,
has a PayPal button for those individuals who would like to contribute to
support that product. Have you considered doing the same?
Quoting Kai Vehmanen <k_AT_eca.cx>:
> 1. A short summary of changes
> Ecasound's emacs mode, ecasound.el, has been updated to
> version 0.8.3. Due to severe bugs found in the native Python
> ECI implementation, the C implementation has been again set as
> the default. Minor interoperability problems with older JACK
> releases and Ecasound have been fixed. A bug that caused builds
> against an external libreadline to fail, has been fixed.
> Also recording problems with the WinTv 401Dbx and other
