Renoise 2.8 adds 64-bit support for all platforms and concentrates on 
workflow improvements in various aspects.

* For a complete rundown of the new features, have a look at the 
Renoise 2.8 launch page: http://www.renoise.com/release-notes/280 *

- Plug-in bridge allows 32-bit plug-ins to be used within 64-bit Renoise
- Full Rewire 64-bit support

Reworked Pattern Matrix with Slot Aliases
- Alias individual pattern slots in the matrix, i.e. treat them like clips
- Edit one slot and have changes propagate to all other aliases
- Quickly clone or alias slots by dragging their edges
- Use section headers to group parts of the song together

Track Groups & Collapsing
- Group tracks into logical units, collapse them for better overview
- Flexible routing of group tracks
- Collapsed tracks use minimal space, while still providing a quick overview
- Pattern effects in groups will affect all member tracks simultaneously
- Automatically collapse all tracks except the one you are focussing on
- Color code tracks with adjustable background colors

DSP Effects and Meta Devices
- New DSP Multitap delay for spaced out filtered echo madness
- New DSP Repeater for st-st-st-stuttery goodness
- New DSP Exciter to make your mixes sparkle
- New Meta Mixer allowing blending of modulation signals into one output
- Improved EQs with bigger graphs and all values can be automated
- Improved Send devices, which can now be individually panned
- New and improved crossover filters for the Multi Send device

Sample Editor
- Left & right channels can be edited separately
- Zoom level & current selection are remembered per sample
- Significantly faster sample loading
- Destructively render slices to individual samples
- Improved keyboard and mouse selection handling
- Improved marker and waveform display visibility
- New and improved processing tools (mute selection, insert silence,
 invert phase, swap stereo channels and cross-fading loop creator)

Improved Spectrum View
- New Phase Correlation Meter in Phase Scope
- Side-by-side comparison of two tracks in the spectrum view
- New drawing modes: Filled Curve, Bar and Spectrogram
- Configurable frequency scaling, precision, peak fall rate, and slope

Pattern Effects
- Pattern effects in the master or group tracks will affect all member tracks
- Up to 34 DSP devices can be addressed via pattern commands 1xyy-Yxyy
- New pattern effects: Tremolo, Auto Pan, Set Envelope Position
- Logical mnemonics for pattern effects from A to Z instead of cryptic numbers

Performance Improvements
- Hyper-threading support for new Intel i5 and i7 CPUs and others
- Various audio engine speed optimizations for all platforms 

Other Workflow Improvements
- New Favorites system for plug-ins and native DSP devices
- Expandable and detachable Envelope Editor
- Memorize last used bank/preset paths per plug-in
- Automatically name rendered songs/patterns
- Right-side modifier keys are no longer hard-coded
- Finer control over note distribution when dragging samples into keyzones
