Great new features!!!

I built ecasound and after a quick test to make sure it's installed and
running, I am ready to test the new features.

I don't know what other people think about ecasound, but when I first
started using it about 5 years ago, it became (and has remained) my
favorite linux program. And that's *not* an exaggeration.

I'm testing because I'm excited about the new features. This will not be
a "sacrifice" of my time because I'm looking forward to it, and am
fueled with enthusiasm.

I looked at the items of personal interest in the examples page and was
absolutely delighted at the clearness of explanations. Most of my time
building ecasound related projects is dedicated to trying to decipher
man and other instructional texts. The sections I looked at are very
clear. Thanks!!!

I just have one errand to run in town and I will start testing the new
features when I'm back.
