Hello folks,
Right on the heels of big One-O we've decided to release a minor
update with some corrections, main features being some package
improvements and a midi timing issue when running under very high

    MusE : http://muse-sequencer.org

[Fixes since 1.0]
* Removed: Disabled watchdog thread. (T356)
* Changed/Fixed: Thread priorites: Added command line switches
 for audio (-P) and midi (-Y). (T356)
  - Audio (-P) applies to dummy driver only.
    (Else audio priority is fixed by Jack).
 Fixes potential issue with midi timing when MusE was assigned
 a very high priority.
* Added: Enable/disable LASH command line switch (-L),
 (if LASH support is compiled in). (T356)
  - Helps prevent some issues like auto-starting Jack, or
  automatically routing midi to fluidsynth (observed).
* Fixed: BUG ID: 2879426: *.med does not save meta event types. (T356)
* Fixed: Midi meters now show for each track even if they're all on
 same device and channel. (T356)
* Applied: muse-destdir.patch Scripts and utils packaging fix
 submitted by Orcan Ogetbil. (T356)
* Fixed: python detection exchanged for script from http://libvirt.org/ (rj)
* Feature: Jack transport enable/disable in Midi Sync settings window.
 Stores setting per-song. (T356)
 - Should be Ok to use and test. Needs a bit more work. See jack.cpp
 and jackaudio.h
* Fixed: Speedups of audio pre-fetch especially when moving the cursor
 around (seeking). (T356)
