Although most development work on Ardour is focused on Ardour 3.0 these
there are still ongoing maintainance changes (many driven by the continuing
development of Harrison's Mixbus). Enough of these changes, fixes,
improvements have
accumulated that it seems appropriate to get a new Ardour 2.X release out,
so without further ado, Ardour 2.8.13 is now ready for download from
the usual place:

* Fixed build for VST support
* Switch to new LV2 stack

Bug Fixes

* Fix various crashes during session open
* Installer works correctly when run as root
* Fix nasty off by one error that put the end of an end-trimmed region

  nomimally trimmed to

* Fix/workaround bug in GTK that prevents <release> bindings from working
* Fix non-functioning use of arrow keys in keybindings
* Fix bug capable of causing significant "wierdness" when evaluating a
  curve in a position before the first point of the curve (this bug
  has existed in Ardour since revision 17, which is nearly 13,000
  revisions in the past!)

  xdg-open instead of glib functions

* Increase the click pool size.
* Change reset of the click/metronome to improve behaviour when
  locating and looping.
* Display modifier names in keybinding editor using real key logos
  (e.g. the "cauliflower" symbol for Command on OS X).
* Make sure loop markers are shown when loop is initiated.
* Fix odd behaviour of code used to determine if the mouse pointer is
  inside the track canvas.
* Speed up session close by not redrawing stuff as each track/bus is

* Improve sensitivity of some menu items based on the currently
