Since feature freeze in effect, this needs a freeze exception to go into Hardy.

This is mostly a bugfix release, except for the first two entries in the changelog - and the Hadamard Exhaustive Search isn't available in Ubuntu x264 anyway, as it's an unofficial patch at this point. I believe it might be worth getting into Ubuntu.

It's available on debian-multimedia.org, and I'll merge it if the motu-release team approves this exception.

Attaching diffstat for orig.tar.gz since 2.4.0.

Hm... the glade file seems to indicate some UI changes, though the changed lines compared to the file size is still quite low, and I couldn't really estimate how much code glade produces for small changes. While the changes really sound more like adding features than fixing bugs, I guess the better qt4 support is still release worthy.

-> ACK #2 and approved.
