- Fixed initial LV2 plugin UI widget/window titles.
- Attempt to get any brand new LV2 plugins Qt4 enabled UI's working on either slv2 and lilv build modes ;) (nailed by falkTX, thanks).
- Current clip is ultimately inferred from the one under the play-head position and current selected track; the last one clicked over and/or selected still has precedence (following request by Loiugi Verona).
- Drag-moving clips horizontally with the keyboard arrow-keys just got a step better with a fixed minimum of one pixel, depending still on the current snap-per-beat setting and horizontal zoom level (as suggested by Louigi Verona, thanks).
- Get maximum and minimum peak values back when drawing audio waveforms.- Automation play/feedback has been missed to show on those plugins that provide their own GUI, now on par with all the rest 'homebrew' widgets (eg. generic plugin properties dialog).
- All plugin parameters automation and selection were left inaccessible until the generic native plugin dialog is eventually shown, now fixed (re. bug #3463916).

Enjoy && Happy New Year!
