3.0 alpha8 is now available. Its not a huge set of changes, but does
include fixes for several crashing bugs. One important thing to note
up-front is that some changes introduced in alpha7 have seriously
broken a number of aspects of automation track display and editing
(this includes MIDI Controller data). Fixing these issues (not being
able to edit the data, track heights and visibility being wrong) will
be the first priority when I start working on alpha9 next week.

Ready-to-run binary packages can be found here:

    * Linux 64 bit Intel:
    * Linux 32 bit Intel:

Changes & Fixes

    * Correct broken behavior of Ctrl-c (copy) when used with regions
    * Fix crash on moving back beyond the region start in the step editor
    * Fixed bug where multiple embedded files would import at the
timestamp of the first file.
    * Fix range and behaviour of monitor gain solo boost and SiP dim controls
    * Add numeric displays to monitor section controls
    * Cleanup incorrect use of jack_port_get_buffer_type() (potential crash)
    * Change default overlapping note strategy to "relax" (i.e. do nothing)
    * Fix crash when looping with MIDI data
    * Add note-off resolution at loop point so that notes are turned
off when looping (but don't forget the effects of Ye Olde Sustain
    * Rename "Apply" in the startup dialog to "Open" .
    * Remove some potential user confusion by replacing a non-standard
error dialog with a standard MessageDialog
    * Ignore unpaired noteoff's when writing part of a MidiModel to a
new source. In reality, there should probably be no unpaired noteoffs,
but this is still an important fix because without it MIDI->Fork will
create a region with no data at all.
    * Better handling of session loading errors when playlists can't be created
    * Always use numeric prefixes for default-named tracks / busses
    * Revert inadvertent broken changes in alpha7that broke route
group gain control
    * Fix crash when open automation track for MIDI CC

Thanks to Todd Naugle, Carl Hetherington and your eternal grunt for
this set of changes.
