Initial Support for Frontier Design Tranzport in Ardour 2.0

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: a picture of the Tranzport screen under Ardour's control.

The New Ardour Website

Just in time for spring 2006, we are happy to unveil the new Ardour website. Built and managed using the excellent Drupal content management system, the new site contains almost all the content of the old, plus new features:

Most important of all: because the site is now using a CMS, it becomes vastly easier for us to provide access to the community. Manual editing, page creation and more can all be done by anyone with the required priviledges. Watch for more news on how to acquire these.
