It looks like snow leopard is hitting the streets on Friday and I was wondering if anyone has tried running Ardour on a developer copy? It looks, at least to my untrained eye, that Apple has done some work under the hood of the os. Personally I am still running tiger, but was looking to upgrade on this go around.

Nobody who works on ardour development has snow leopard at this point (to the best of my knowledge). I plan to upgrade from Tiger because Snow Leopard will permit better debugging tools to be used. Its even cheap enough that I might be able to afford it!

Paul-

The cheap upgrade price is only for upgrading from Leopard. Otherwise I think you have to buy the box set.

But yes I will also be upgrading to Snow Leopard once I get back to Richmond from Santa Fe.

To my knowledge, there is no reason that Ardour won't work on Snow Leopard out of the box to be honest, but I haven't tested it yet.

I did some quick tests today on a friend's development copy, and Ardour 2.8.2 started up just fine. Jack >kind of< did. Jack doesn't show up as a device in System Prefs or AudioMidiSetup right now... but Ardour found it just fine.
Paul - I'll try to find you on chat tomorrow to give you more details...

Hmm sounds like the Jack CoreAudio driver needs to be updated then. Probably not a huge deal, but above my level of programming;)

Ardour 2.8.2 runs without noticeable problems on Snow Leopard AFAICS. Concerning JackOSX, the new 0.83 version for SL is in beta.
