Hey all,
I just installed 5.12.0 on a few machines in my studio. For consistency's sake I'd like to put the same version on my G4 & G5 too (currently have 4.8.x on the G5, the G4 is new. And yes, it's running Leopard.)

The only PPC download I can find is the nightly build, currently 6.0-pre603.

I understand the PPC build is still considered "experimental" and not really part of the stable branch, but I'd just like the version I'm using to match up so I can share project files.

Can I get 5.12.0 PPC anywhere?

Thanks!

I'll pin the nightly builder to Ardour 5.12 and launch build (note that it does need OSX 10.5).

Got it, thanks tons!

I'll be setting this up on my thoroughly-upgraded dual-G4 1.7GHz with a 4-in/4-out MIDI interface that doesn't have working drivers for anything over OS/X 10.8. Perfect combo IMHO. :)

HUGE props for keeping Ardour going on PowerPC. I am of the firm opinion that these are still great machines & can still do a ton of useful work today.
