It's ready now!

We did a lot of code refactor, testing and bug fixes in the last ten
days, and now it's ready for release :-)

Note that X.org intel video patches are also necessary for HDMI sound output.

However our 3 HDMI monitors have only 2-channel audio support, so
8-channel LPCM audio may not work for now.
