AlsaPlayer license is changed to GPL-v3. In consequence, all the AlsaPlayer
related packages are updated.

AlsaPlayer is a new type of PCM player. It is heavily multi-threaded and tries
to excercise the ALSA library and driver quite a bit. It has some very
interesting features unique to Linux/Unix players.

#####################################

AlsaPlayer-0.99.80-rc2 is the new GTK2 release of this versatile audio player.

A lot of debugging and improvements has been made on the GTK2 interface (and
under the surface too). The GTK1 interface was removed in the process.
GTK2 is now fully internationalized and a few languages are provided.

Extended header support in mp3 file is added, so the console will not complain
anymore about this, and the user's experience is improved.
Every user is encouraged to upgrade AlsaPlayer and help with development, bug
reports, feature requests, translations...
We need your help with a few things:
* Bug reports
* Feature requests
* Artwork contributions
* Translation for more languages and improvement of the existing ones.

*************************************

FftSope-1.0.6

FftScope is a nice visualization plugin for AlsaPlayer.

It is now under GPL-v3 and the GTK1 interface is removed from the package.

The GTK2 interface provide the same level of functionality as before.

*********************************

python-alsaplayer-0.3.1

These are python bindings for the AlsaPlayer library. The intent is to provide
a set of bindings that closely mirror the C library, leaving more complex
functionality for purely python modules. This release update the license to
GPL-v3 or later.

************************************

This is the initial release of this midi input plugin for alsaplayer.

It is derived from Tuukka Toivonen's TiMidity and reflects the work of a number
of other people (see AUTHORS).
Compile and install it in alsaplayer's input/ plugin directory, install a
soundfont, then you can play midi files with alsaplayer.

I hope you will enjoy those releases and AlsaPlayer's very nice GTK2 interface!
