Hello all,

after skipping 2013 altogether (2.9.0 was released in June 2012), it's
time to wrap up the git commits and start 2014 with an officially stamped

1. Summary of changes in this release

Bug fixed with ai-remove/ao-remove. Regression fixed in ALSA PCM draining
logic. Many minor bugs have been fixed.

2. What is Ecasound?

Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing.
It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording and format
conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing,
recording and signal recycling. Ecasound supports a wide range of audio
inputs, outputs and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be
combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by
operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console mode
user-interface is included in the package.

Primary platform for running Ecasound is GNU/Linux. Ecasound can also be
run on many UNIX-derived systems such as FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Solaris.
Limited support for Windows is available through Cygwin. Ecasound is
licensed under the GPL. The Ecasound Control Interface (ECI) is licensed
under the LGPL.

* Bugfixes to ALSA PCM output, ecatools, ECI ai-remove/ao-remove commands,
