hi, i worked with the 0.99.2 this week
the automation really is much more stable, i found one more thing, which i
dont know if it is "famous" already, so i try to explain:
i go with the mouse in to the gain automation track
in that moment the mouse apears as a "cross" and i can move the automations
points now up and down 
i am also able to move the points to left or right, and on that point,
trying to move one automation point to left or right, ardour freezes (but
not the hole mashine, so i just have to restart ardour)
the bad thing is, this dont happens every time?!
can you understand this explanation?
is that issue already known
after the crash i also have to restart qjackctl, oterways the sound coming
out of the mashine is not usable, but very bad destorded
this is very uncomfortable, cause than i have to restart also jamin, as far
it is involved in to the session 

ardour99.2 handles very well sessins from 99.0, exept it makes some
artefacts with subwindows(export, connect, open session), this is a little
tricky, but i foud the way to handle

sorry, this part i did not got, can you explain it in other words please,
i am working with demudi 1.2.1

if i understood this right, i have to recompile also jamin, which comes with
demudi, swami etc.
what is with alsa!, rme-firmware (the multiface runs now very well)
is it possible to do this with synaptic, there is a option "install again"?

i actually really would like to get the thing up-to date, but i am afraid to
end up in troubles and than writing questions to you guys insteed of working
on audio
this much for this time, cheers and thanx in advance,
