Version 2.1.1 1/20/2010
   Open a window with error message when Jack does not initialize (instead of quitting silently) and automatically open JackPilot

   The Binary Macintosh distribution is bundled together with the GTK library, so it is not necessary to downloaded GTK separately.

   The graphical user interface is fetched from file BRP_PACU.iu via GTKBuilder (instead of libglade, which is deprecated)
   

Version 2.1.0 04/17/2009
   Changed libraries for thread mutexes for compilation on windows

   Smaller screen sizes now supported

   Octave based (log2) frequency grids instead of log10

   Auto-resize (ctrl-r) works much more predictably and smoothly

   Delay size has been increased to 1000millisecs

   Averaging (graph response time) and smoothing now adjustable via GUI

   Other minor glitches fixed

Version 2.0.8(unreleased) 04/06/2009
   Added Pink Noise Menu Item and CTRL-P accel
   
   Changed N to N_FFT to avoid symbol collisions
   
   Major Performance improvement, more than halved needed CPU cycles in gui
      *Changed smoothing algorithm in gui.c to not calculate millions of points redundantly
Version 2.0.7 04/01/2009
   Buffer Management
      *Added capability to automatically save the capture buffers and load them
      from $HOME/.BRP_PACU/buff_store at startup if it exists
      *Added Open, Save, and Save-As dialogs, functionality to store buffers
      for later usage/reference
      *Added functionality for opening data files by double-clicking or dragging
      into the application icon (Mac only)
   HCI 
      *Put more user friendly name onto Transfer Function Button (formerly
      H(z)
      *Changed Buffer names to not start at 0, but 1, updated accelerators
      accordingly 
      *Removed menu pictures because they hid the accelerator shortcut help in
      the menus for some reason
   Keyboard Accelerators
      *Thanks to Andreas for fixing the Mac key accelerators and suggesting the
      use of Control keys instead of Alt keys
   Minor Memory Leaks
      *Destroy widgets on exit only if left open
   Premature Memory Deallocation errors
      * Made colors global variables in gui.c
      * Made several widgets global variables
   Fix Jack callback stability by improving threadlock handling  
      *Removed threadlocking around gui_idle_func (Gui Idle function) which keeps jack audio thread from updating buffers
      *This improves jack performance (XRuns) by preventing Jack audio buffer callback from being locked out for long periods during a gui callback
      *This is done by only copying critical memory areas during the thread lockout, rather than trying to update the whole gui and not make a copy, which was easier to do but not clean
Version 2.0.6 02/01/2009
   Thanks to Andreas Schwab for fix to Makefile.am to detect gtk and noticing that
   the Jack callback Fill_buffer had no return value
Version 2.0.6 01/10/2009
   *Apply patch created by J Walton, aka tehgooroo so that it will compile using Macports
   under Mac OS-X.  Thanks J!

   *Fix minor problem in the impulse response algorithm caused by delay fix.

01/05/2009
   Fix bug in delay introduced by another bug fix.

01/04/2009
   Fix minor install error with gui.glade
   Starts jack transport automatically

12/31/2008
   Fix Jack call back to avoid mutex collisions

Version 2.0.0 12/31/2008
   Pink Noise and Jack Support

   Added Pink Noise Output

      *Mute/Unmute and adjust levels
   
   Add Jack Audio Connection Kit support and removed alsa
   
      *Automatically connects Reference and Measured to Channel 2 and Channel 1
   
      *Automatically connects Pink Noise Output to Reference Input

   Removed header install as part of installation (This was an accidental feature in previous
   versions, sorry)

12/20/2008
   Major GUI and UI update!

   *Delay function now resets delay before each capture, resulting in a much
      more intuitive delay finding procedure.

   *Rewrote buffer capture interface so that it makes more sense and works
      consistently.

   *Rewrote keyboard shortcuts so they don't interfere with the Avg gain.

   *Added default zoom button to return to original zoom settings.

   *Added inserted delay size status on the status bar.

   *Added "about" and "general help" windows

   *TODO: add pink noise generator and ability to save buffers to a file.
      This will allow soundcards with only one input channel to do the transfer
      function.

11/26/2008
   Fixed compilation erors with latest version of gtkkdatabox library.
   Certain API calls were removed or changed.  This update allows
   compatibility with the latest version.
02/22/2008
   Fixed delay dialog units.  Fixed delay algorithm bug.
   Fixed Broken automake links in tarball (Thanks to Dan for pointing them
   out).
02/04/2008
   Added "LED" signal indicators for audio inputs.  Changed soundcard buffer
   handling to prevent oops messages.
   Fixed various minor UI issues such as delay dialog problems.
01/28/2008
   Changed the thread sound read and the fft function to fix likely
   buffer over/underflows.  
01/28/2008
   Changed Smoothing function to work properly.  This feature was broken in an
   unreleased version by an upgrade to gtkdatabox-0.8.2.2
