      Release Notes: The SndKit is now integrated into the MusicKit source distribution and CVS repository, so there is now no separate SndKit download. Windows support has been modernized. As a result of developing on Win32/MinGW, many of the supporting libraries have changed. portaudio in particular has been improved. A gremlin deselected compilation of SndAudioProcessorMP3Encoder, which caused linking errors. This should now be fixed.

        Release Notes: MusicKit now has better Mac OS X CoreAudio and MusicXML support. SndKit now features low-latency playback, looping of sounds, fixed memory leaks, the unification of conversion behaviors, libshout 2.0, a fix for nasty crashes when using multiple audio stream input devices on Mac OS X, and a choice between Sox and libsndfile. This gives users the option to make a tradeoff between memory usage and speed.
