Ardour has been updated to v2.8.

This is primarily a bug fix version but it also comes with a couple of significant features. These include much more reliable VST support on Linux, track/bus templates and, with some important qualifications, AudioUnit state and preset handling, according to Ardour.

New Features:
  • Track/Bus Templates.
  • Distributable VST support.
  • VST preset handling.
  • VST chunk handling.
  • AudioUnit state & preset handling.
  • New playhead-to-{next,previous}-region-boundary variant commands that ignores track selection (on Linux, Windows-LeftArrow or Windows-RightArrow; on OS X, Ctrl-LeftArrow or Ctrl-RightArrow).
  • New, thoroughly edited Spanish translation.
  • New "accurate" crossfade icons.

  • Correct handling of Shift- shortcuts on OS X.
  • Fix confusion with Ctrl/Cmd/Option on OS X.
  • Cmd-, now shows Preferences window on OS X.
  • Removing a track/bus that was visible in the editor mixer strip causes the editor mixer strip to move to the next track/bus.
  • Default click output is dual mono (2 outs), not mono (1 out).
  • Fix ordering of editor & mixer displays when order in the other window is changed and sync-editor-mixer-order is enabled.
  • If we attempt to move beyond the current limit of the horizontal scrollbar, change its upper limit so that we keep scrolling (fixes a bug with playhead tracking beyond the current session end).
  • Standardize sizing of ComboBoxSelectors throughout the GUI.
  • Fix crash when renaming a track after deleting a plugin that had a visible GUI/editor window.
  • Make "consolidate range" and "bounce range to region list" not apply processing to the original audio.
  • Added variants of "consolidate range" and "bounce range" which do apply processing.
  • Fix potential for clipping when use Transpose or TimeFX.
  • Standardize some menu actions across CD and loop/punch rulers. also allow right-click drag to create ranges, which may be more discoverable than ctrl-click drag because the other rulers already use right-click for creating markers.
  • Mute region" shortcut operates on all selected regions.
  • Fixes for crossfade clicks.
  • Fixes for gcc 4.4.
  • Fix crash when sending MIDI feedback with MTC enabled.
  • Allow dragging of automation lines.
  • Preserve sufficient significant digits when saving automation events to disk.
  • Quantize shuttle speed changes to whole semitones when shuttle in semitone mode.
  • Use region sync points correctly for grid and playhead motion.
  • Fix subtle bug when playing plugin automation that could sometimes lead to crashes and memory corruption.
  • Use Vamp 2.0 and Rubberband 1.3 (includes an important fix for a potential audible issue when stretching).
  • Fix freeze progress bar display.
  • Fix potential crash caused by multithreaded execution of plugins while "freezing" a track.
  • Make name-click to toggle plugin active state show up via the bypass button state in the GUI.
  • Context menu-driven operations on ruler bars now cause things to be added in the right place (e.g. new markers).
  • Fix a crash that occurred while dragging a region after a split.
  • Do not cache JACK port buffer addresses, to permit operation with experimental versions of Jack2.
