Qtractor 0.6.7 (lepton acid beta) is out!
Well, the major highlight to this release is in fact this brand new and way long overdue feature, seamlessly integrated to the faithful and regular audio track export function: MIDI track instrument plug-in rendering and mix-down (aka. freeze) is now real, as long their audio output goes onto selected buses, aka. stems, mix-groups, whatever a mix/mastering head would name it! nb. on the (very exquisite) Qtractor arch-model parlance, those are just called "audio output buses" and that ain't gonna change, any time soon, so stop it! A word of caution must be told by now: dedicated (JACK) audio output ports are off-the-grid, so sorry.
Maybe this silently makes a notch towards the DAW epitome, though Qtractor still claims to be just a plain and honest sequencer--with yet another DAW-like feature addition--the same as it ever was.
