The Ardour project has released Ardour 4.0 – the latest version of the open source DAW for Mac & Linux. (No official release is available yet for Windows)
This release brings many technical improvements, as well as new features and over a thousand bug fixes.
The biggest changes in this release:
- Better cross platform support. Ardour now runs on GNU/Linux, OS X and for the first time, Windows.
- JACK is no longer required, making it easier than ever for new users to get Ardour up and running (though JACK is still usable with Ardour).
- The user interface has seen a thorough overhaul, leading to a more modern and polished experience.
See the Ardour site for details.
