2.0 rc1 released

A couple of weeks after 2.0 beta12, the Ardour team brings you 2.0rc1 , and the OS X Tiger universal DMG. Dozens of bug fixes, a few usability improvements, even a couple of new features (e.g. rename&delete snapshots). This is first release candidate for 2.0, but it is missing last minute tweaks, specifically up to date and complete translations. We hope to release RC2 within the next 7-10 days which will hopefully be the final release before 2.0. Read more below for the changelist.

You do not have the necessary dependencies required to build ardour
Please consult http://ardour.org/building for more information

Yast doesn’t have anything above glib2 2.8.1 I tried to google for some newer glib’s too but the guys over at the suse irc channel said that its generally a good idea not to touch the glib’s I have Suse 10.0 btw, updating to 10.2 would eventually solve the problem but I’m gonna save my cds for feisty fawn instead.

Linux :slight_smile:

This is great news!

Ardour is awesome, keep up the fantastic work.

Fantastic work so far !! Everything runs smooth like butter and looks pretty good, too.
Just the message telling me that my system did not have enough locked memory is a bit annoying, but the is always sth. you can argue about, isn’t it? :wink:

I need testers for bardix, a new gentoo linux based audio live cd.
