FAUST 0.9.6 Released

Release 0.9.6 of the FAUST compiler offers several new features

SuperCollider externals with Faust : it is now possible to use Faust to generate also supercollider external objects thanks to the supercollider architecture file contributed by Stefan Kersten. A single FAUST specification can now be used to automatically generate code for more than 10 plateforms including : VST, Max/MSP, Jack, ALSA, Q, LADSPA, SuperCollider, PortAudio.

Faust Language extended for metadata declarations:
the syntax of the language have been extended for project metadata declarations. The metadata supported are project's name, author, copyright, license and version.

XML description of a Faust program : this new option allows to generate an xml file that describes some aspects of a Faust project, in particular the metadata and a the user interface.

Better block-diagram generation : Block-diagram generated with the -svg option have been improved. They are not perfect but start to be nice and usable.
