Ardour 3.5.74 is released to make sure that a variety of very useful fixes
plus a couple of functional improvements are available to as many users as
possible. If you use Ardour with one of our translations, you should almost
certainly update, because there we have fixed lot of subtle breakage caused
by the translation process. For others, read over the changes and you can
decide for yourself if you would benefit from an update.

Fetch it from the usual place <http://ardour.org/download>. The OS X demo
version <http://community.ardour.org/files/Ardour-3.5.74-64bit.dmg> has
been updated too.

Read on below for more information on what was in 3.5.74 ...
Functional Changes

   - Unify editor + mixer ordering. After more than a decade of complexity,
   Ardour now has only a single ordering of tracks & busses. Modifying it in
   the editor window or the mixer window will also modify it in the other
   window. This reduces some tricky programming, and removes another choice
   offered to users that really just their lives more complex, with no great
   - Double-clicking now allows editing/renaming an expanded set of things,
   including regions and markers of various kinds.

Fixes and Improvements

   - Fix handling of the check button in the memory lock warning dialog
   - partially fix NSM support so that random use of NSM_URL doesn't cause
   - fix MIDI quantization where a region was trimmed at the start or had
   an non-integer position
   - fix MIDI note lengths after quantization when using swing
   - place new routes after highest-numbered selected route, if any
   - make fixed IO port names untranslatable (e.g. "MTC in")
   - fix playback & capture channel counts when using the JACK dummy backend
   - fix MMC after changes included in 3.5 release
   - allow the use of the environment variable
   ARDOUR_LOVES_STUPID_TINY_SCREENS to override Ardour's refusal to show
   certain things on netbook/tablet-sized screens
   - Fix invalid silence trimmer end-of-input behavior during export. This
   caused corruption in the audio file when: normalizing AND adding silence to
   end AND having more than one channel.
   - make translations just work on OS X if system preferences has been
   used to select a supported language preference.
   - minor fixes based on various compiler optimization messages
   - keep processing LV2 Ringbuffer once it is allocated, but discard
   messages in LV2PluginUI::write_to_ui() if the ringbuffer exists but the
   plugin GUI is not active. This fixes "[ERROR]: Error writing from plugin to
   UI" messages if the plugin GUI was once active but has been closed since.

Build Related Fixes

   - remove all "fuzzy translations", thus fixing several problems
   experienced by users working in non-English locales
   - allow linking against unbundled versions of libltc, rubberband, taglib
   and vamp-sdk)
   - allow complete overriding of all optimization flags (if -O<something>
   is preset in the arguments given to --arch, we no longer prepend the
   default optimization flags)
   - fix test builds (./waf configure --test)
