Name        : qtractor
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 0.5.8
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://qtractor.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer
Description :
Qtractor is an Audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application written in C++
around the Qt4 toolkit using Qt Designer. The initial target platform will be
Linux, where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK) for audio, and the Advanced
Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) for MIDI, are the main infrastructures to
evolve as a fairly-featured Linux Desktop Audio Workstation GUI, specially
dedicated to the personal home-studio.

Update Information:

 * Dropped old audio ramping spin-locks as its glitching 
reduction weren't that effective anymore.
 * Audio bus and track gain may now be set for amplification
again, from +0dB up to +6dB, while using the Mixer strip sliders/faders (an old function found missing ever since pre-TYOQA).
 * Basic LV2 X11 UI support has been added through libSUIL
but only really effective if plugins doesn't support the
LV2 External UI extension in addition which takes precedence
on any case.
 * Improved precision tolerance on the Tempo Map / Markers
 * Reinstated and fixed (old) warning and impending
re-conversion on loading session files which the original
sample-rate differs from current audio device engine (aka. JACK).
 * LV2 Plugin State/Preset name discrimination fix
 * Linked/ref-counted audio clips must not overlap and 
now must have a buffer-size worth of a gap between each 
 * Something fishy has been detected in the SSE (not so)
optimized code from SoundTouch's-inspired WSOLA
 * Splitting clips apart is now easier than ever: a brand
new entry enters the main menu scene: Edit/Split (Ctrl+Y)
splits up clips according to current range/rectangular
 * Audio clip offsets are now properly corrected when 
time-stretching is applied via Shift/Ctrl+dragging any of
the clip edges.
 * One semi-colon typo was hiding proper descrimination of
peak files used to draw distinct waveforms of time-stretched
audio clips.
 * Track automation curves are now also affected by 
Edit/Insert/Range commands.
 * Finally, some visual feedback is shown while audio track
export is running, in he form of a main status progress bar.
 * New user option: save backup versions of existing session
 * Default session directory now set to regular file's 
path on load.
 * A convenient minimum slack duration has been
fixed for MIDI SysEx messages.
 * LV2 Time/position information is now asynchronously
fed back into their parameter (control input) ports when 
* LV2 State is now properly restored for plugins inserted
on buses, probably solving the Calf Fluidsynth SoundFont
information missing on buses ticket
 * Fixed an immediate null pointer crash on creating a
parentless new group while on the files organizer widget.
 * Preparations for future Qt5 migration.
