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.
Thanks to the fantastic work of Thorsten Wilms on the new Ardour icon, we now now have Ardour T-Shirts available.
The Ardour project is happy to be able to announce the involvement and support of Solid State Logic (SSL), one of the most respected and trusted names in the field of audio technology. SSL has chosen to support Ardour's development and to promote the idea of its broader adoption within the audio technology industry. Please read on for more details.
You asked for it, you got it. We've revamped the forums so they more closely resemble phpbb and other such software. There's still some tweaking to be done, but enjoy.
Ardour2 has entired feature freeze in preperation for a stable Ardour-2.0 release. All commits to the main trunk are for bug fixes only (except for one or two works in progress which were given special exceptions).
This is exciting. We're on the home stretch for a 2.0 release now.
VST support has been re-enabled in Ardour 2.0. It is not trivial to use just yet (and probably never will be). Read more (below) for more details and watch this space for more documentation.
Ardour is now using Subversion for revision control. This means that public read-only access is finally available again. Details can be found on the expanded download page.
