Ardour 2.0.5 released
As we grow nearer to the dog days of the northern hemisphere's summer, we bring you Ardour 2.0.5 ( DMG available), a fixup release coming after various issues were discovered on OS X while preparing a package of 2.0.4. Read more below for the changes in 2.0.5 (and 2.0.4 for those who missed it) ...
Changes since 2.0.4
- code builds on OS X and older Linux systems (side-effect: reduced memory utilization by automation data)
- font sizes parametized (to allow easier maintainance of themes) on OSX & Linux
- crash revealed by GTK+ 2.11 (unstable new version of GTK) fixed
Changes since 2.0.3
- protect ardour from sessions with errant capture sources stored in the (pending) session state. This was a major bug that has affected many people over the last several releases. It is now fixed.
- add Theme Manager, including new "light" theme
- add delta-cursor option from trunk (allows clock to display the gap between the edit+playback cursors)
- massively increase automation resolution
- support for 16 bit native file format
- stop audio clocks from vanishing when turned off
- plugin selection dialog now has filtering by name, type, author and more
- permit GUI user-driven add/remove of MIDI ports
- fix for radio grouping of subframes menu options
- fix crossfade editor-induced crashing
- safeguard against false disk underruns when punching in
- correctly save user-modified keybindings to ~/.ardour2/ardour.bindings
- fixes for building against GTK-OSX (Ardour now builds and runs on OS X without X11 - this is a source code feature, the DMG for OSX will still use X11 for now)
- lots and lots of work to the Mackie Control surface support (many small changes and incremental improvements)
Fixes and features this release from: Sampo Savolainen, Doug McLain, Ben Loftis, John Anderson, Jesse Chappell and your grunt, Paul Davis.
