Hello all,

Jmeters-0.4.1 is now available at the usual place:

Jmeters is a Jack app offering software versions of various
traditional analog audio level meters.

This release is a major update. It offers VU meters, BBC, EBU
and DIN style PPM meters, stereo versions (using red and green
'needles') of the three PPMs, and correlation meters matching
the VU, BBC and DIN styles, most of them in different sizes and

The Jmeters instruments have the correct 'ballistics' for both
the VU and the PPMs. Given the same input, they will indicate
exactly as the original electro-mechanical meters, all of which
are rather strictly specified in various standards documents.

New features:

* DIN style peak program meter (IEC type I).

* Stereo correlation meters.

* The default 'style' is now a rectangular frame of around 300 by
170 pixels. There is also a smaller rectangular form, and the two
original round 'Meterbridge' styles are still available for all
types except the DIN style PPM.

* The meter 'needles' are now plotted using the Cairo library which
provides much better visual quality than the raw X11 graphics used

* It is now possible to put labels on the meters, just include
them on the command line, either mixed with the Jack port names
or after them. Anything not containing a ':' is considered to be
a label instead of a Jack port name.

Many thanks to Richard Lamont for all comments and suggestions.

Enjoy !
