As it's over a month since dev4, and there are no known serious problems
with the current CVS-tree, it's time to get 2.1dev5 out.

Instead of coding, I've spent quite a lot of time using ecasound for
actual real work (ie. recording and mixing music) during the last few
weeks. As a matter of fact, I think I've recorded more material with
2.1dev5 than with any other ecasound release.

The bad news is that this has slowed development quite a bit, but on the
other hand, the good news is that ecasound seems to work very nicely now.
Thanks to the new disk-i/o subsystem and semi-intelligent parameter
selection, ecasound usually works as it should without need for additional
fine-tuning. There are some minor annoying features, but most of them are
old issues, and already on the todo-list. The bottom line is that I've
been able to record multiple long tracks without any xrun or synchronation
problems! Yay! :)
