1. A short summary of changes

Sliders for parameter control and text inputs for 
lower and upper bounds have been added as well as
support for LADSPA-1.1 and ecasound effect parameter 
hints. There has been some user interface improvements 
and a native JACK support has been added. Updated to 
use the new ecasound-2.2 libraries.

2. What is ecamegapedal?

Ecamegapedal is a real-time effect processor software with
a graphical user interface for controlling the effect 
parameters. It is meant to be used as a virtual guitar-fx 
or studio effect box. In addition to real-time operation, 
ecamegapedal also supports reading from and writing to audio 
files. All audio object and effect plugin types provided by the 
ecasound libraries are supported. This includes ALSA, JACK, 
OSS, aRts, over 20 file formats, over 30 effect types, LADSPA 
plugins and multi-operator effect presets. Ecamegapedal's 
implementation is based on ecasound and Qt libraries.

Ecamegapedal is licensed under the GPL.

3. Changes since the last stable release

* Added native JACK support. If compiled with JACK support
  enabled, ecamegapedal will upon startup fetch the 
  current engine parameters from the JACK server, and 
  initialize the ecamegapedal configuration to work 
  with JACK. In practice this means that you don't 
  have to manually set the buffersize and sample rate
  parameters to use ecamegapedal with JACK.

* Support for LADSPA-1.1 and ecasound effect parameter 

* Text inputs for overriding default upper and lower
  bounds for parameter values.

* Sliders for controlling parameter values.

* Pixmaps for transport control buttons.

* Takes advantage of the newly released ecasound 2.2.0 
  libraries (does not work with older ecasound releases).

* Should work with all released Qt2 and Qt3 versions.
  Tested with qt-2.3.2, qt-3.0.5 and qt-3.1.1.
