Wow, 2 releases in a week or so. Yeah, what am I thinking?
Anyway, lets get the usual out of the way
Marlin is a sample editor. It edits samples.

There, that's that.
Changes (or "why should I care?")
* You can change samples from mono to stereo and back again to your
* Marlin will tell you if it can't encode to a format.
* I fixed a typo.
* Some dialogs were less than HIGGY...so I fixed them up.
* CDDA extraction had some ..... issues. It doesn't anymore. IE: It
should actually work rather than just crawl under a bed and
* Marlin now cleans up its /tmp files. No more honking great big
files in /tmp for you to clean. Sorry if you liked that old
behavour, feel free to fork.
* The cursor no longer flickers when you move it around a bit.
Yeah, that's all, it's just a minor quick release.
ACHTUNG! NOTE BENE! IMPORTANT! OUZO!
******* a version of gst-plugins that
is GREATER than 0.8.3. Currently this means you need to use CVS
HEAD. Now, it will compile with 0.8.3, but it WILL NOT WORK! It
WILL crash instantly. This is known and FIXED when you use
gst-plugins GREATER than 0.8.3. If you decide to try to make it
compile with 0.8.3 and then run it and it crashes and you tell me
about it, i WILL point and laugh at you, in public and private.
That is all I will do. I will not listen to you telling me about
marketing, or trying to blame me for your incompetance and failure
to follow fairly simple instructions.
Sorry about that, but certain people need to told these things.
you'd think they'd work it out from
gst-plugins > 0.8.3
If you're scared by CVS, you can get a patch at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148533
Okay? Got that?
Anything else? No? Oh yeah, begging for stuff:
Wanted - Fender Jaguar
Old random guitar effects
Does begging for stuff ever work? No, apparently not, but its
become a bit of a tradition.
I could turn you inside out! iain
