i spent a good part of today catching up on patches from the bug
tracker and recent work done in the mixbus branch. these include:

* LV2 patches from nedko to support log params and external GUI
* visual state patch so that changing visual states with keys or menu
always works
* freesound mootcher patch (Freesound *might* work again)
* libsndfile is now no longer included in the source tree. you need
libsndfile 1.0.18 or later, preferably built with FLAC and Ogg/Vorbis
* FLAC & Ogg/Vorbis import & export now supported
* better (less crashy) handling of catastrophes with JACK
* handle LADSPA log parameters properly or at least better
* improved I/O button labelling
* edit group visibility maintained across session loads
* splash window can be forced to behave with wacky WM's like ion3
* about window is now a transient (floating) of the editor window
* even stronger checks on naming a send the same as a track or bus

this all adds up to a reasonable bit of sudden change, and is the end
point for the now-imminent 2.8.3 release. i'd really appreciate it if
a few of you could test out an svn build and check into a few of the
features mentioned above, so that i can be sure that these patches at
least do not break other stuff and at best actually work :)

many thanks. i'd like to get 2.8.3 out early next week, so ...
