rncbc.org has announced Qtractor v0.8.6 as the Winter'18 beta release for Linux.


- Added LV2_UI_updateRate option support.
- Added brand new option to deactivate plugins only if they can produce sound cf. main menu Track/Auto Deactivate.
- Workaround native file dialogs hang up by setting parent widget to NULL; it should be noted that dialogs now get an own entry in the task-bar.
- Added ARM NEON acceleration support.
- Track count "limit" and a "Delta" mode flag, for momentary and encoded controllers support, have been added to MIDI Controllers generic mapping (cf. View/Controllers...).
- A little hardening on the configure (autoconf) macro side.
- Pinned current/hi-lighted track dangling after removal.
- An anti-flooding timer is now in place in MIDI Controller assignment (aka. MIDI learn) dialog.
- Add MMC Track input monitor support.
- New user preference option: View/Options.../General/Options /Reverse keyboard modifiers role (Shift/Ctrl), applied to main transport re-positioning commands: Transport/Backward, Forward, etc.
- VST Time/Transport information is now also updated as on playing when in audio export aka. freewheeling mode.
- LXVST_PATH environment variable now takes precedence over VST_PATH as Linux-native VST plug-ins search path.
- MIDI Controllers mapped to non-toggling shortcuts now work as one-shot triggers, independent of MIDI event value.
