AMS 2007

AMS is ressurected and I did some work on several aspects like usebility and efficiency. There is no 1.8.8 release yet but soon it will be ready. You might try to compile AMS from CVS to enjoy the latest improvements anyway and I would be glad to get feedback.
I will be in Berlin on Linux Audio Conference and maybe we will meet there.
