	operator classes

	* First alpha version of the block processing framework introduced
	in "blocks"

	* The noshearlength routine computes next efficient transform length
	for a Gabor system on a non-separable lattice

	* The frames framework now support non-stationary Gabor systems

Version 1.3.0 20/3 2013
	* This is the first full release of the wavelets. Too many changes
	to list here, but the major features are listed below:

	* fwt - Fast wavelet transform

	* fwt2 - 2D FWT with different layouts

	* ufwt - Undecimated FWT

	* wfbt - Wavelet filter bank tree

	* wfilt_ functions defines a lot of different possible wavelet and
	scaling functions.

	* nuttall window added to FIRWIN. General cleanup of FIRWIN. If is
