Ardour 2.0beta5 released
We are happy to announce a new beta release of Ardour 2.0 (beta 5.1). This release features a huge number of improvements and fixes since the last beta.
The.dmg will be available for OS X ASAP, and will be linked to from here when its ready.
This is still beta software, but we believe we are close to the point where most of the remaining bug fixes are for trivial matters (though still potentially involving crashes). Please test the new beta, and report issues to the ardour-dev mailing list and the #ardour IRC channel. Mantis (the issue tracker) can be used, but we'd prefer at this time to keep it free of things that are trivial to fix.
Do not use Ardour 2.0 to open the only copy of sessions created with Ardour 0.99. Ardour 2.0 saves the session file in a new format that Ardour 0.99 will not understand. The simplest way to address this is to make a copy of the session file itself (e.g mysession/mysession.ardour) and make that file unreadable using chmod(1).
