I'm announcing a maintenance update of Nama[1], with
several fixes and improvements.

- envelope fades now work with transport seeking (fix in Ecasound 2.8.0)
- more intuitive control of buses
- reorganized source code
- documentation of variables and track subclasses

Nama is available as a Debian package[2], or as a 
native perl distribution from CPAN.[3]

A blurb follows.
