FTS was not just an audio-engine. it was a message-engine as well (floats 
and ints and symbols and lists and anythings and custom atom types).

jMax was the name of the whole package when it got open-sourced.

jMax was also the name of the client side (GUI) when put in opposition 
with pyMax (which was an incomplete project bundled as part of the jMax 

FTS was the name of the server side (audio+message).

FTM is the name of some parts of FTS 4.x after they got separated from FTS 
so that they could be used as a Max plugin. I believe that those parts 
were mostly (or completely) written in the FTS 4.x... but I haven't 
followed much of that side of the developments.
