das_watchdog 0.2.5
Whenever a program locks up the machine, das_watchdog will temporarily
sets all realtime process to non-realtime for 8 seconds. You will get an
xmessage window up on the screen whenever that happens.

Changes 0.2.4->0.2.5
*Let the test thread run with SCHED_FIFO priority using the
 lowest priority. Should hopefully stop all the unnecessary reports.
 (This change has been tested quite thoroughly)

jack_capture v0.9.3
jack_capture is a program for recording soundfiles with jack. Its default
operation is to capture whatever sound is going out to your speakers into 
a file. This is the program I always wanted to have for jack, but no
one made. So here it is.

Note: Anyone using 0.9.2 should upgrade to 0.9.3! 0.9.2 will most likely 
      hang during startup. :-(
      (I'm going to start testing my software before releasing from now 
      on, this one was very embarrasing.)

Distros: If there is a system for doing so, you should mark 0.9.2 as 

Changes 0.3.9 -> 0.9.3
 *Fixed horrible deadlock in 0.9.2. Bug found by Ken Restivo.
 *Fix for a potensional deadlock.
 *Added the --silent/-s argument.
 *Some smaller fixes.
 *If recording to wav (the default) and the the 4GB limitation is reached,
  automatically close the file and continue writing to a new file with an
  autogenerated name.
 *Added the --version/-v argument.
 *Changed default number of zeros in the autogenerated filename to 1.
 *Better error output.
 *Autogenerate code to check if various formats are supported by sndlibfile.
 *Bumped version up to 0.9. jack_capture should reach a 1.0 state quite 
 *Changed the name of --recording-time to --duration to match -d.
