0.79.1 Maintenance Release Notes

Summary

We recommend repository maintainers move to 0.79.1, which should be much easier to package. Details in the Packaging section below.

We recommend users of our zip, dmg, and Windows installer packages upgrade from 0.79.0 to fix some audio and usability bugs.

This maintenance release was made possible by everyone who tried 0.79.0, submitted bugs and pull requests, and tested the updates: thank you!
