MusE 2.1 Jan 06, 2013

Happy new year everybody and happy new MusE release!
We've tried hard to break tradition and release somewhat quicker than
what we usually been able to.
So without further ado, here we are with a shiny 2.1 release.

Assortment of topics worked on this time around are:
* Native VST support, first drop: effect rack isn't supported yet and
some synths are misbehaving a bit but it should be usable.
* New type of drum track with easier instrument handling
* Improved Wave Editor.
* Improved midi import/export
* Longtime wierdness in MusE, song-type is finally removed
* Improved: Deicsonze soft synthesizer: Fixed crash, bugs, added ladspa plugins
* Added: Request from forums: Auto-start Jack upon MusE startup.
Command-line disable switch -J added
* Added aftertouch controller handling
* Piano KB and drum list show coloured dots when per-pitch controllers
exist or have data.
* Improved: Instrument Editor (controller tab): Redesigned. Fixed MANY bugs
* Improved: Midi controller graph 'Ctrl' popup menus now unified (cascading).
* Improved: built-in templates and removed lots of unneeded definitions
* Improved: Velocity graphs. Icon for showing per-note or all velocities
* Improved: Piano KB has current selected note (yellow). For
velocity/polyaftertouch/other per-note ctrls

now obey the 'speaker' icon
