   Qtractor is free, open-source software, distributed under the terms 
of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 2 or later.


- Fixed initial LV2 plugin UI widget/window titles.
- Attempt to get any brand new LV2 plugins Qt4 enabled UI's working on 
either slv2 and lilv build modes ;) (nailed by falkTX, thanks).
- Current clip is ultimately inferred from the one under the play-head 
position and current selected track; the last one clicked over and/or 
selected still has precedence (following request by Loiugi Verona).
- Drag-moving clips horizontally with the keyboard arrow-keys just got a 
step better with a fixed minimum of one pixel, depending still on the 
current snap-per-beat setting and horizontal zoom level (as suggested by 
Louigi Verona, thanks).
- Get maximum and minimum peak values back when drawing audio 
waveforms.- Automation play/feedback has been missed to show on those 
plugins that provide their own GUI, now on par with all the rest 
'homebrew' widgets (eg. generic plugin properties dialog).
- All plugin parameters automation and selection were left inaccessible 
until the generic native plugin dialog is eventually shown, now fixed 
(re. bug #3463916).

Enjoy && Happy New Year!
