I upgrade usually as soon as a new package is out. In the case of
Hydrogen I have not yet package the prex version that is a cvs snapshot.
I've been meaning to do that for a while.

I do, but sometimes it takes a long time (if at all) for the app to get
there. Just a matter of resources and priorities.

It's in my list, I was waiting for an official tarball. Any news there
from the JAMin developers?

Sure... thanks for including it in the presentation. BTW, it would be
better to always say "Planet CCRMA". Planet CCRMA is just a small subset
of what happens at CCRMA proper.
