Free multitrack sequencer Ardour updated to v5.9     17th May 2017

Ardour 5.9 is now available, representing several months of development that spans some new features and many improvements and fixes.

Among other things, some significant optimizations were made to redraw performance on OS X/macOS that may be apparent if you are using Ardour on that platform. There were further improvements to tempo and MIDI related features and lots of small improvements to state serialization. Support for the Presonus Faderport 8 control surface was added (see the manual for some quite thorough documentation).

As usual, there are also dozens or hundreds of other fixes based on continuing feedback from Ardour users worldwide.

General Changes and Improvements:

- Prevent adding Master Bus to a Track/Bus group and make group button insensitive.
- Re/Add send options in the Processor box context menu and an option to allow feedback loop via Aux sends.
- Improvements to behaviour of Track/Bus/VCA Color Selection dialog.
- Consistent Color Selection dialogs with customizable color palette.
- Update Track/Bus/VCA colors while choosing color in Color Selection dialog.
- Use Shift key to toggle gain-grouping on a Fader, ctrl to override solo/mute grouping.
- Update Selection Clock when selected Region properties change.
- Hide SoundCloud upload in Export Dialog until fixed.
- Use OpenGL backed rendering/drawing for several Widgets on OS X/macOS including main Track Canvas to improve performance.
- Add ability to drop Group from VCA via right click on Group tab.
- Add preference to disable blinking of alert buttons.
- Various improvements to Audio Setup dialog.
- Add preference to only enable Click when recording is enabled.
- Updates to Blueberry Milk colors/theme.

- Remove no longer necessary LocaleMode preference.
- Make -b/--bindings command line option output key bindings to HTML and launch in browser.
- Add -A/--actions command line option to output actions' names in HTML and open in browser.
- Deselect WASAPI support by default in Windows installer.
- Make Track/Bus XML node order in Session file independent of display order [#7327].
- Add action to select the topmost track and use in Faderport8 surface.
- Make Group color property accessible to surfaces and scripts.
