Fedora Update Notification
2012-07-10 20:31:58

Name        : ardour
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 2.8.13
Release     : 1.fc17
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:

Build Changes

* Switch to new LV2 stack 

Bug Fixes

* Fix various crashes during session open
* Fix nasty off by one error that put the end of an end-trimmed region one sample beyond where it should be. this would lead to the creation of 1 sample xfades where there should be none, if another region was aligned to the same point that the region had been nomimally trimmed to
* Fix modifier definitions to work with newer GTK versions
* Fix direction of zoom wheel in timebar rulers
* Fix crash when deleting some LV2 plugins that have had a GUI on-screen
* Fix click latency correction
* Fix translation of sample rate expressed as kHz
* Fix/workaround bug in GTK that prevents bindings from working
* Fix non-functioning use of arrow keys in keybindings
* Fix bug capable of causing significant "wierdness" when evaluating a curve in a position before the first point of the curve (this bug has existed in Ardour since revision 17, which is nearly 13,000 revisions in the past!)
* Fixing issues with opening a browser when using the bundle. Use xdg-open instead of glib functions
* Fix typo in region fade key bindings 


* Switch to FFADO as the default firewire backend for JACK.
    Add 176.4kHz rate to audio engine dialog.
    Save/goto view bindings are now Shift-Fn to save, Fn to goto (Fn is F1, F2, etc).
* Increase the click pool size.
* Change reset of the click/metronome to improve behaviour when locating and looping.
* Display modifier names in keybinding editor using real key logos (e.g. the "cauliflower" symbol for Command on OS X).
* Make sure loop markers are shown when loop is initiated.
* Fix odd behaviour of code used to determine if the mouse pointer is inside the track canvas.
* Speed up session close by not redrawing stuff as each track/bus is destroyed.
* Allow Separate to work on a range selection.
* Crop no longer works on all tracks if no tracks are selected.
* Improve sensitivity of some menu items based on the currently selected edit point.
* Remove (sub)menu items from keybinding window.
* Improve ruler text space above baseline.
* Clarify what the "precise" button does in the timefx dialog by using a better label.
* Various tweaks to Freesound UI.
* Apply automation when bouncing with automation in Touch mode, not just Play mode.
* Don't distort crossfades when changing their length substantially.
* Disallow colons in snapshot names.
* Add COMPOSER to TOC/CUE files.
* Improved interaction with Freesound.org (backported from Mixbus and Ardour3).
