QjackCtl 0.2.16 is finally out!

After laying around for a long time in the backyard (aka CVS:), the Qt
front-end to the one-of-a-kind JACK audio server daemon is finally made
public. Rejoyce!

As one can read from the changelog:

- ALSA sequencer client/port name changes are now properly detected on the
MIDI connections widget (as noted by Chris Cannam. Thanks).

- Long overdue transport buttons (rewind, backward and forward) finally
landed onto the main control window, at last :).

- Duplication (copy) of patchbay socket items was added.

- Do not ever try to start the JACK server if there's one already found
running, on which case the client-only mode of operation is then activated
(as kindly suggested by Orm Finnendahl, thanks).

- After several Mac OS X user requests, ALSA/MIDI sequencer support is now
an option, otherwise detected at configure time and conditionally compiled
in if, and only if, ALSA is found available (which has been a primordial
assumption on Linux systems:). Ah, and that just makes for the blind
inclusion of another backend driver option: coreaudio.

- Actual OSS device selection menu now featured on setup dialog; these
adds to the device selection button menus for the OSS driver settings.

- Delayed geometry setup of windows upon startup was added as an optional
workaround to subtle problems due to window decoration information not
being available at window creation time on some window managers (as patch
proposed by Dirk Jagdmann. Thanks).

- Fixed some minor but rather old bug that was quitting the application
abruptly, when one switches off the system tray icon while the main
application widget is hidden.

- Cancel is now an option when creating a new patchbay definition.

- Context menus are finally littered with icons.

- Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and Mac OS X
specialties. Also, install does the right thing with target file modes
(thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim Mayat, for pointing these out).

You can get away with it from the usual place:
