Fedora Update Notification

Name        : ardour
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 2.8.7
Release     : 1.fc11
URL         : http://ardour.org
Summary     : Multichannel Digital Audio Workstation
Description :
Ardour is a multichannel hard disk recorder (HDR) and digital audio workstation
(DAW). It is capable of simultaneous recording 24 or more channels of 32 bit
audio at 48kHz. Ardour is intended to function as a "professional" HDR system,
replacing dedicated hardware solutions such as the Mackie HDR, the Tascam 2424
and more traditional tape systems like the Alesis ADAT series. It is also
intended to provide the same or better functionality as software systems such
as ProTools, Samplitude, Logic Audio, Nuendo and Cubase VST (we acknowledge
these and all other names as trademarks of their respective owners). It
supports MIDI Machine Control, and so can be controlled from any MMC
controller, such as the Mackie Digital 8 Bus mixer and many other modern
digital mixers.

Update Information:

Ardour 2.8.7 has been released. Although I had hoped that the next release would
be an alpha version of 3.0, we have accumulated too many critical bug fixes and
a few nice to have features to let 2.8.5 wait any longer. Anyone using MIDI
control surfaces with a "Stop" transport button should upgrade NOW to avoid data
loss when recording and using that button.        * MMC (and other remote
control protocols) no longer causes Ardour to discard recorded material when
stopping transport.      * fix latency compensation when punching in (which was
a regression in 2.8.2)      * fix crash when loading a session with certain
kinds of crossfades      * fix "crashes" caused by an endless loop of events
related to the editor track "big text cursor"      * don't cause clicks and/or
possible plugin problems when editing while the transport is stopped      * load
plugin presets at the right time      * an implementation of "Save As" (result
is still saved within the session folder)      * new option in editor track list
context menu to show only tracks that have regions under the playhead      *
initialize the export folder name correctly      * initialize system template
folder name correctly      * fixes for 64 bit build with some versions of gcc
(ensures that assembler optimizations will be used)      * plugin "favorites"
file format modified for portability. We are sorry that you will lose your list
of favorites (and/or hidden plugins) after upgrading.      * updated
translations for Italian, Russian, Swedish, Norwegian, Czech
