Today Glame 1.0.2 stable was released. This is a bugfixing release
focussing on fixing the known issues with the New Posix Threading Library
(NPTL) shipped with recent libc and 2.6 Linux kernel (and unfortunately
also with RedHat 9.0 and Fedora distributions). Apart from this you'll
notice some improvements in the importing of Mp3 and Ogg files, namely,
you can cancel them now.
Users and distributors are encouraged to upgrade.

The first stable release (0.8.0) of JAMin - the JACK Audio Mastering
interface is now available for download.
JAMin is a GPL licenced, state-of-the-art realtime mastering processor
designed to bring out the detail in recorded music and provide the
final layer of polish. Every effort has been made to ensure a clean,
distortion-free signal path. All processing elements use linear-phase
filtering, ensuring that no phase distortion is introduced.
JAMin runs on Linux using the JACK Audio Connection Kit, a low-latency
audio server, which can connect a number of different applications to
an audio device, and also allow them to share audio among themselves.
Installation instructions + requirements
* Linear filters
* JACK I/O
* 1024-band hand-drawn EQ with parametric controls
* 30-band graphic EQ
* Spectrum analyser
* 3-band peak compressor
* Lookahead brick-wall limiter
* 3-band stereo processing
* Presets and scenes
* Loudness maximiser
JAMin is (c) 2004 J. Depner, S. Harris, J. O'Quin, R. Parker and P. Shirkey.
The Rosegarden team announce the release of Rosegarden-4 0.9.6, an
audio and MIDI sequencer and score editor for Linux. To download the
source package, go to the homepage at
This release is primarily to address a significant problem with 0.9.5
that was seriously affecting sequencer timing performance for some
users. For this reason we strongly recommend an upgrade. Be aware
that one of the fixes in this release mandates the use of Qt 3.1 or
newer to build; Qt 3.0 is no longer supported.
This release also contains new translations of the GUI into Italian,
Swedish and Estonian, thanks to Daniele Medri, Stefan Asserhäll, and
Hasso Tepper. These are in addition to the existing support for US
and UK English, Russian, Spanish, German, French, and Welsh.
Q is a multi-platform functional programming language based on term
rewriting, which comes with a collection of useful addon modules for
system, scientific and multimedia programming. Release 4.6 of Q is now
available, along with Q-Audio 1.2 and Q-Midi 1.12.
Q 4.6 provides a much improved GGI module and a new ImageMagick module,
both very useful for programming graphics in Q. Q-Audio 1.2 features a
new module to display audio data in a GGI visual and a sample graphical
audio player application. Q-Midi 1.12 sports some minor fixes and a
simplified Windows install procedure.
Downloads and more information about the Q project can be found on the Q
website at http://q-lang.sourceforge.net

expected, there are only minor fixes against 1.0.0rc2.
The 1.0 code is a direct successor of the 0.9 code which firstly
introduced the completely reworked APIs since 0.5 version. Our focus is
to offer a hardware abstraction layer for all kinds of hardware including

The Linux Audio Mini-Conf @ LCA2004 will be held on the Monday Jan 12 2004,
preceding linux.conf.au, Australia's national Linux conference.
In keeping with the developer focus of linux.conf.au, this mini-conf will
allow Linux audio developers to meet and share ideas, and also to discuss
audio-related issues with the developers of the kernel, networking and
desktop systems. For all users, this will be a great way to see and hear
the variety of tools available.
Full details are available at:
10:00 Mark Greenaway: Linux Audio demos
12:00 Peter Chubb: Typesetting music with Lilypond
14:00 Tim Opie: jMusic and audio synthesis
15:00 Erik de Castro Lopo: The PDAudio Project
16:00 Conrad Parker: Remix
16:30 Andre Pang: DJing Beyond the Turntable
Night: Linux Audio demos and jamming!
18:00 Jam session at the Queens Arms (88 Wright Street)
Everyone attending linux.conf.au (not just the audio miniconf) is invited
to the evening's jam session and demos. Those who are musically inclined are
of course welcome to bring laptops or instruments, or to simply have a go
with what's there.
Dinner is available: the Queens Arms' kitchen will be open from
18:00 to 20:30.

- updated muse_ru.ts from Alexandre Prokoudine (ws)
- fixed midi file import: map drum events with drumInmap (ws)
- added missing initialisation of _rwFlags in MidiPort. Sometimes
MidiDevice->open() was called on startup with rwFlags=0
(no read/no write) which resulted in midi write errors (ws)
- Drummap fixed to work w respect to index in dlist. Mapping of in-notes
now works. (Mathias Lundgren)
- Undo-bugfix (Mathias Lundgren)
- Changing the out-key in the drummap plays the actual key changed
to. (Mathias Lundgren)

There are also a bunch of known issues with this (and presumably earlier
- Does not yet support LADCCA 0.4
- Does not build with libtools 1.5.x, use libtools 1.4.x
- Givertcaps support is broken, use setuid method or run as root
- probably others I forgot...oh time will tell...
And finally, do stay tuned for muse 0.7 which judgeing by the massive
changelog will rock! :-)
It will be arriving... when it's ready...
