[Ardour-Users] testing OS X native versions (Paul Davis)

Hi Paul,

First of all... this is all amazing! Thanks for yours and everyone  
elses work on this!

There were a couple things I noticed. This are at the inconvenience  
level though:

1) Jack configuration is a little dodgy: I can't change number of  
inputs or output. Also, will it work with the Jack I have on my  
computer? or qjackctl? If not, will I be able to route sound in or  
out from other apps?

2) the apple-` keystroke that usually lets you cycle through windows  
doesn't seem to work. apple-M does let me switch to the Mixer, but I  
can't get back to the editor without a mouse click.

Other then that, a pretty complex project I have been working on  
opens just fine. Looks great, and seems more responsive! Thanks!

>     2) There is a widespread "bug" in that characters used as
>        accelerators cannot be used in text entry widgets once
>        the main window(s) are open. The underlying behavior
>        here differs from Gtk/X11. I hope to have a fix

“Every composer – at all times and in all cases – gives his own  
interpretation of how modern society is structured: whether actively  
or passively, consciously or unconsciously, he makes choices in this  
regard. He may be conservative or he may subject himself to continual  
renewal; or he may strive for a revolutionary, historical or social  
palingenesis." - Luigi Nono
