The gtk2 version is working, I have managed to crash it a couple of
times but overall the port seem in good status.

Yes I remember that patch, I used it for a while and it had also basic
jack_transport capability. I saw that the debian mantainer dropped the
jack support for ST a while ago, so I guess you're right about JACK
versions. I can't remember if Kai's patch was only for adding
jack_transport or for jack support (maybe jack output is already on
original ST sources).

I've had a quick look at skaletracker a year ago or so, it was looking
good but a little slow. Unfortunately, the site states that
"We have created this program to you all. This will be free (NO CHARGE)
to use for the Scene. (NOT OPEN SOURCE)"
So, it is freeware but not free. I'm not so rigid in this respect, but
if you look at what happened to buzz (another great program IMHO): buzz
can run fairly well under wine, but for sure there will be no further
development on it, since the author lost the sources after a disk
crash. If the sources were published, this wouldn't be occurred.
PS: hope to see you again at LAC2006 ;)
