Great work and great news! Thanks a lot! I love the new menus with all
the options and transport commands. VeryNice.

The only problem I found was that with some gtk themes (using Gnome) the 
button labels and the menu entries disappear (or are hard to read) 
because they remain white. Also, sometimes in the plugins list the 
background turns into alternating light and dark lines and the text with 
light background becomes unreadable. I found that It's hard to find a 
theme that works well and that limits the number of themes you can use 
with the rest  of Gnome. Maybe adding the option to change the text 
color in ardour's excellent color manager window could be a solution.

I just wanted to report my experience.
