Happy new year to all

I would announce a new release from guitarix   

guitarix is a simple Linux Rock Guitar amplifier and is designed 
to achieve nice thrash/metal/rock/blues guitar sounds. 
Guitarix uses the Jack Audio Connection Kit as its audio backend 
and brings in one input and two output ports to the jack graph. 

Release 0.05.6-1 changes:

  * add delay effect
  * fix build against Gtk+ ver.2.12  
  * optimize GUI thread and reworked GUI 
  * various bugs fixed    

have fun

guitarix is licensed under the GPL.

For extra Impulse Responses, guitarix uses the 
convolution application 'jconvolver' created by Fons Adriaensen.
