Lilv 0.14.0 is out.  Lilv is a library to make the use of LV2 plugins as
simple as possible for applications.

This release includes many improvements, most notably built-in support
for saving/restoring plugin state (including powerful non-destructive
saving of plugin state which contains files), many bug and portability
fixes, and support for new LV2 concepts.


 * Add lilv_plugin_get_extension_data
 * Use path variables in pkgconfig files
 * Install man page to DATADIR (e.g. PREFIX/share/man, not PREFIX/man)
 * Make Lilv::uri_to_path static inline (fix linking errors)
 * Use correct URI for dcterms:replaces (for hiding old plugins):
 * Fix compilation on BSD
 * Only load dynmanifest libraries once per bundle, not once per plugin
 * Fix lilv_world_find_nodes to work with wildcard subjects
 * Add lilv_plugin_get_related to get resources related to plugins that
   are not directly rdfs:seeAlso linked (e.g. presets)
 * Add lilv_world_load_resource for related resources (e.g. presets)
 * Print presets in lv2info
 * Remove locale smashing kludges and use new serd functions for
   converting nodes to/from numbers.
 * Add LilvState API for handling plugin state.  This makes it simple to
   save and restore plugin state both in memory and on disk, as well as
   save presets in a host-sharable way since the disk format is
   identical to the LV2 presets format.
 * Update old references to lv2_list (now lv2ls)
 * Support compilation as C++ under MSVC++.
 * Remove use of wordexp.
 * Add lilv_plugin_get_port_by_designation() and lilv_port_get_index()
   as an improved generic alternative to
 * Add lilv_plugin_get_project() and get author information from
   project if it is not given directly on the plugin.
