As far as I am concerned, current SVN as of rev 5322 represents what I
plan to release as 2.8.1 early next week. If anyone cares to do any
testing, please do so in the next 48hrs. The tentative change list is
below. This would also be a good time for any translators to play
catchup before release.

  * Insert Time action can now optionally move tempos & meter markers


  * sort playlist menus in a more agreeable way
  * sort ports correctly in many lists/menus
  * faster startup by using pre-rendered region names
  * implement panner reset functionality (missing since 0.99!)


  * fix crash when deleting AudioUnit plugins (Leopard/Cocoa GUI
  * fix crash when closing a session after displaying 1 or more plugin
  * fix AudioUnit input/output configuration cache handling for some
    plugins with "interesting" configurations.

  * stop import dialog from resizing at various times
  * fix apparently-insensitive file selector in import dialog on OS X
  * fix serious error in Cleanup that could lead to data loss
  * fix details of file formats when exporting CD markers
