New in this release

   The timing algorithm for replay synchronisation has been
   rewritten. This should improve the timing accuracy for application
   such as drawing programs where the time spent in one position is
   affecting the thickness of a dot being painted.

   * Fixed bugs:

     Savannah:
        #33237, Xnee fails to record on RedHat
        #33667, Seg fault (on Ubuntu 11.04)
        #32385: CNEE replay precision
        #32767: Button key to stop recoring
        #32762: no sync option faulty


... and the name 'heron'? 
It's a tribute to the artist: Gil Scott-Heron - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gil_Scott_Heron - who recently passed away (May 2011)
