how long ?
the current version is 0.2.11
in the cvs are many additional features...
i have ported to gtk2 and threading last week and i am still sorting out
the problems
which occur when you port an app to threads without proper analysis :-)

when i have all problems i can see on my uni-processor removed 
someone with SMP needs to point me at the race conditions.

this is not in cvs. (but i will fork of a branch soon)

so you have only audio connections in SSM ?
how do your sequencers work then ?

i considered the the event type connections a good thing
but for LFO they are not so good of course
(there is the sig2evt component) but this does not perform so good
because audio processing is interrupted to process events.

i am also getting problems with the events because they can be emitted
the audio thread and it should not use malloc.
So i have to write my own mem management which gets its memory from

i you connect an LFO to a cutoff freq you recalculate filter
for every sample ?
