On the wrap of the late miniLAC2016 at c-base.org Berlin (April 8-10)
, where this Yet Same Old Qstuff* (continued) workshop 
babbling of yours truly (slides, videos) was taken place.
There's really one (big) thing to keep in mind, as always: Qtractor 
is not, never was, meant to be a 'do-it-all' monolith DAW. Quite frankly
it isn't a 'pure' modular model either. Maybe we can agree on calling it
a 'hybrid' perhaps? And still, all this time, it has been just truthful
to its original mission statement--modulo some Qt  major version
numbers--nb. it started on Qt3 (2005-2007), then Qt4 (2008-2014), it is
now Qt5 full throttle.
It must have been like start saying uh. this is probably the best dot or
rather beta release of them all!
Qtractor 0.7.7 (haziest photon) is out!
Everybody is here compelled to update.
Leave no excuses behind.
As for the 'mission statement' coined above, you know it's the same as
ever was (and it now goes to eleven years in the making ):
Qtractor  is an audio/MIDI multi-track sequencer application
written in C++ with the Qt framework . Target platform is Linux,
where the Jack Audio Connection Kit (JACK ) for audio and the
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA ) for MIDI are the main
infrastructures to evolve as a fairly-featured Linux desktop audio
workstation GUI, specially dedicated to the personal home-studio.
- source tarball:
- source package:
- binary packages:
- LV2 UI Touch feature/interface support added.
- MIDI aware plug-ins are now void from multiple or parallel instantiation.
- MIDI tracks and buses plug-in chains now honor the number of effective
audio channels from the assigned audio output bus; dedicated audio
output ports will keep default to the stereo two channels.
- Plug-in rescan option has been added to plug-ins selection dialog (yet
another suggestion by Frank Neumann, thanks).
- Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant given
that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido Scholz, thanks).
- Immediate visual sync has been added to main and MIDI clip editor
thumb-views (a request by Frank Neumann, thanks).
- Fixed an old MIDI clip editor contents disappearing bug, which
manifested when drawing free-hand (ie. Edit/Select Mode/Edit Draw is on)
over and behind its start/beginning position (while in the lower view pane).
