After landing almost literally at my day-job work place, I still didn't had much time for a reflection on what happened during this last days, on my now already traditional trip to the international Linux Audio Conference. This years edition took the KHM-Köln as a venue and, well, I'm back safe and sound. But sad already, somewhat. Suffice to tell that I do really enjoy being there and I really wish it could take much longer, or at least until one's missing home and warm family touch doesn't get in the way of insanity nor terribly overwhelming.
After some time in quarantine, meaning that it just passed almost 40 days since its last public appearance, the frivolous debutante has matured a bit but not that much. Truth is, it is not quite healed and in fact, it is getting seriously bloated ;)
Qtractor 0.1.1 (futile duchess) has been released!
Free-Your-Media is a weblog on open source multimedia technologies, developed for the purpose of: graphics design, web development, video editing, audio software, open source games, Creative Commons, Linux... please share the word. Many thanks for a great job, Pawel.
This last week-end has seen a major rewrite of the plug-in infrastructure (qtractor 0.1.0.838+), opening the way for more plug-in types, other than just LADSPA. So, effective today on CVS HEAD, you get native Linux VST support on Qtractor. Audio effects only however. This marks the way for the next working season, which is about having MIDI synth/instrument plug-ins, or DSSI and VSTi support for short.
This might be old news for some, but my pet project, Qtractor, has been awarded the Hottest Pick as seen on the Linux Format UK's best-selling Linux magazine, as of January 2008 issue (LXF101). It was just today that I've grabbed (bought) one copy from my usual news-stand and after a while browsing over to the LXF Hot Picks section (p.70), I've found it to my astonishing pleasure.
