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.
Harrison/GLW demo'ed Ardour's capabilities as a destructive recorder and film dubber at the National Association of Broadcasters meeting in Las Vegas (April 2006). Significant interest was reported.
Continuing in the tradition of releasing stability fixes for the gtk1-based Ardour, here is 0.99.3. To see the complete changes read more.
Ardour has been accepted into Google's Summer of Code: 2006 project. If you are interested in being a part of SoC2006, please read our ideas page, check out the roadmap and then visit the SoC student page.
As an experiment, we're opening up the manual editing to all those who wish to contribute. If you want to give it a shot, leave a comment here.
I'm deleting the request comments after I give approval. If your comment is deleted, start editing. :)
Frontier Design kindly donated one of their Tranzport wireless control surfaces to the project. Within a few hours, transport control was operational and Ardour could use the LCD screen. There is lots more work to be done on the control surface infrastructure, but we expect full support for the Tranzport within a few days. For now, this is as good as it gets: .
