Zrythm 1.0.0-beta.3.9.1 has been released!

This release among other things brings CLAP (experimental) and JSFX
plugin support, thanks to the work of Filipe Coelho (falkTX) and Jean
Pierre Cimalando (jpcima) in Carla.

The pre-compiled binaries for GNU/Linux are now universal. This means
that instead of installing distribution-specific packages, Zrythm
installs itself under /opt. This makes the pre-compiled binaries work
on any distro (with some exceptions like GuixSD and NixOS) where the
glibc version is >= 2.27 (equivalent to Ubuntu 18.04 or newer).

Moreover, the only limitation on gratis binaries is now a maximum of 25
tracks per project. Limitations on save/load have been lifted. Of
course, there are no limitations when building from source.
