It's been a while, since last time we had been here on the qjackctl's
release frenzy :-)
This time, things have changed quite. Probably qjackctl is getting to

- Deprecated options for forcing aRTs and jackd daemons are no longer

- Preliminary patchbay persistence feature is under way. A patchbay
definition editor is already included, following an alternative
socket-plug patchbay model that aliases and is a direct map to the
client-port JACK connections model. The patchbay definitions are stored as
- New post-startup script option; immediate JACK server startup command
line option (yes, command line is now featured too :).
