Pipewire is a BIG new addition. I was very excited to see I could use 
two audio interfaces at the same time and route them wherever I want 
with qjackctl! :) However

There have been some cool new audio plugins too. For instance, Vitalium 
is an awesome synth that I've heard is comparable to MASSIVE (I've never 
tried massive though). I've played around a little bit in Vitalium and 
it is feature-rich.

I've gotten some new plugins from the Arch pro-audio group. For 
instance, there are a couple of plugins I have not tried yet:



Artican's TheFunction and ThePilgrim

Creative Intent's Temper

They have nice looking guis, but I haven't heard them yet.

There is also a new way to load Window's vsts: yabridge. It's been 
getting a lot of attention on the Linux_Audio subreddit, but this is 
another thing I haven't tried yet as I tend to use linvst for Windows 
vsts, and I don't use very many.

Let me know if I missed anything. The Linux kernel itself is also always 
exciting because new audio hardware tends to "just work". The other day 
at work I was able to plug in and use a Scarlet 2i2 without any 
installation of drivers or junkware. How nice is that?
