Lots of compiles, very little testing :-) Here it goes:

* jack-audio-connection-kit updated to 0.40.0 (cvs). The alsa_pcm jack
ports are now named differently (capture instead of in, playback instead
of out), much clearer than before. As some applications hardwire the
port names in the source code this triggered a patch and recompile of
most of the clients was necessary (freqtweak, alsaplayer, rosegarden-4;
clients not affected: ecasound, meterbridge). See more details in the
changelog. This new version includes the new connection API so that:

* added qjackconnect, a Qt based patchbay for Jack. Very nice...


* added jack rack, a LADSPA plugin effects rack, works with Jack (this
is what actually triggered the upgrade storm, it needed the new LADSPA
header and the new jack)

* updated ams to 1.5.3b. Supposedly a full jack app now, but I could not
make qjackconnect actually connect the ports to the jack server. Updated
