1. A short summary of changes

User-friendliness of 'jack_auto' and 'resample' audio 
objects has been improved. Compile-time support added for 
both JACK -0.50 and 0.60-. Python-only implementation of ECI 
is now selected by default. Work-around included for a bug in 
ALSA -0.9.1 that broke xrun handling for record and playback. 
Lots of small bugs have been fixed in the build process.
The SIGFPE bug that occured on FreeBSD systems is now 
fixed, as is the non-aligned access problem on Alphas.

2. What is ecasound?

Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio
processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, 
recording and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect 
processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. Ecasound supports 
a wide range of audio inputs, outputs and effect algorithms. 
Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their
parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators 
and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console mode user-interface is included 
in the package.

Ecasound is licensed under the GPL. The Ecasound Control Interface 
(ECI) is licensed under the LGPL.
