Yes it is. It is not merged into 'master' yet for the reason that there
will likely be a last 3.5.XXX hotfix release (audio+midi file loss)
before CC is ready.

CC is much better than 'master' in many ways, however there are still
some UI regressions: (scroll down to the bottom of
http://tracker.ardour.org/view.php?id=5589 )

git clone -b cairocanvas git://git.ardour.org/ardour/ardour.git ardourCC
cd ardourCC; ./waf configure; ./waf; cd gtk2_ardour; ./ardev

There are 2 or 3 new build-dependencies (vamp-plugin-sdk, aubio)
compared to ardour3.5, but nothing out of the ordinary. Also make sure
to reset the Theme (Window > Theme manager) when first running it.
