Surf again to those urls for what's available now (which is pretty much
everything, I think). Apparently there was no big gcc upgrade so
building was not so bad as for some other releases :-)

Not much testing but a lot of packages released! (that's what users are
for? :-)

New versions of
  ambdec: 0.4.2 
  ams: 2.0.0
  amsynth: 1.2.2
  bristol: 0.40.7
  brutefir: 1.0k
  ecasound: 2.7.0
  fweelin: 0.6
  jack: 1.9.4
  gwc: 0.21-10
  kmidimon: 0.7.1
  qtractor: 0.4.3 (will be overriden by rpmfusion)

was fixed and builds:
(a newer release of pd-extended now includes avifile support)
