software and can be used in English, French, Portuguese, Japanese and

# Current state
Zrythm is in the late alpha stage and we are implementing the final few
features left before we stabilize the project format and enter the beta

The main changes since the last announcement are the following (view
the whole changelog here: <

## New layout
Moved the transport bar to the bottom to give more breathing space to
icons at the top.

## New editing capabilities
Ctrl+D to duplicate, Alt+drag to link regions, cut-paste, Shift+M to
mute/unmute objects and more.

## Bounce to audio
Right click on MIDI material -> bounce to bounce the signal into an
audio region.

## Automation recording
Automation can now be recorded live in latch/touch modes.

## Audio fades
Audio regions have editable fade in/out markers, with various fade

## Choice of automation algorithms
Right clicking on automation curves allows changing the curve

## GNU Guile scripting interface
Zrythm now has user scripting support through a [GNU Guile](
https://www.gnu.org/software/guile/) [API](
https://manual.zrythm.org/en/scripting/intro.html). GNU Guile is an
implementation of the Scheme language, a dialect of LISP.

## New backends
Added support for RtAudio, RtMidi and SDL2 backends.

## Serializable undo history
The Undo/Redo history is now saved with projects.

# Download & install
Zrythm can be built from [source](https://git.zrythm.org/cgit/zrythm)
at no cost or pre-built packages can be downloaded for various distros
for a fee at <https://www.zrythm.org/en/download.html>;. Downloading an
installer is the best way to support this project.

# Next steps
Our current goal is to get to beta as soon as possible. Getting to beta
means the project format will (mostly) freeze, meaning that projects
saved with different Zrythm versions will be compatible. This means
that we must implement all project-breaking features for version 1
before beta, and work on stability during beta.
