As mentioned elsewhere we’re getting read to release version 6.7, which will be the last version compatible with older platforms: Windows (XP), macOS (Snow Leopard) and Linux systems built with gcc4.
Things are just about ready to go, but there have been some fairly radical changes in the last week to some parts of the code. We’re already fairly confident that things are still working correctly, but we’d appreciate some more testing - this will be the last version for these old platforms and it would be nice to make sure it’s as solid as we can make it.
So please consider downloading from the nightly website and give that version a spin with whatever your workflow tends to be. We’re particularly interested in making sure that all aspects of transport control are working correctly. That includes syncing with LTC and MTC/MMC and JACK Transport.
Positive feedback will be as valuable here as negative. We’re not looking for reports on new bugs per se (though those are always welcome over on the bug tracker ). We’d just like to be sure that none of the recent changes have broken stuff before we move on towards the future.
Remember that you can parallel install builds from ardour.org with each other, and with any Linux-distro provided versions of the program. They will not interfere with each other.
