Hello to you. I have something to announce.

The last paprefs release was in 2011, so by now you might have come to
the conclusion that the software had become complete and achieved
perfection. Not so - paprefs is back, now with a version number bigger
than the previous one! But don't make the mistake of thinking that
"1.0" means anything special. It was chosen only because carrying on
releasing 0.9.x releases forever is a bit silly. As we go forward, the
major version number will be incremented whenever new features are
added, and the minor number is incremented when doing pure bugfix
releases (which is the same scheme as what we use with PulseAudio and

For users there's not much new stuff: just a new "Send on fixed port
5004" option on the Multicast/RTP tab. Previously the RTP stream was
always transmitted on a random port, which made some use cases
difficult. Oh, and there's also a new Croatian translation.

For packagers the changes are bigger:

 * paprefs now uses GSettings instead of GConf. GConf is unmaintained
software, so distributions are trying to get rid of it. Due to this
change, paprefs now depends on the recently released PulseAudio 12.0
(or newer), or module-gsettings to be more specific. For more
information about how to deal with the GSettings transition, packagers
should read the "The GConf dependency can now be avoided" section in
the PulseAudio 12.0 release notes:

 * paprefs was ported from GTK 2 to GTK 3.

 * The build system was switched from Autotools to Meson.
