          Release Notes: A crash bug was fixed when loading a new session into an existing Ardour instance. A crash bug, occuring when using Ctrl-drag to copy regions, was fixed. A naming-related issue when adding multiple busses at the same time was fixed. On Mac OS X, explicit checks are made for X11 and JACK, and if they are missing a dialog is posted before exiting. "Black blocks" in text were fixed on Mac OS X when Ardour was installed in a directory containing spaces in its name. Plugin GUIs are now guaranteed to appear on top of the editor and other windows. Clicks on plugins/inserts/send names now work even when numlock is engaged.
