The first unified LV2 release, LV2 1.0.0, is out.
This release merges the previous lv2core package with all the official
extension packages, as well as example plugins, lv2specgen, and
additional data. From a developer point of view, the biggest change is
that all LV2 API headers can be used by simply checking for the single
pkg-config package "lv2" (for compatibility the previous "lv2core"
package is still installed). Implementations are encouraged to abandon
the "copy paste headers" practice and depend on this package instead.
With this release, several new extensions have become stable that
together greatly increase the power of LV2: atom, log, parameters,
patch, port-groups, port-props, resize-port, state, time, worker.

RULES FOR SUBMISSION
All submissions are to be made online, through the submission site. Only one work of electroacoustic music may be submitted, which must adhere to the following guidelines:
• Audio Files: music submissions should include a representative audio recording of the work. If a concert work, it must be the complete composition. Installations may be represented by an excerpted recording not to exceed 10 minutes in length. Judging of music submissions for ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Competition will be from audio files in the MP3 format. Multichannel works will be judged from a stereo mix, also MP3. Please assist us by submitting in MP3 format. Audio files must be prepared as a single LastnameFirstname_audio.MP3.
• Scores: for submissions involving a score, please submit an anonymized PDF score for review. Please do not mail in printed scores. Score submissions must be prepared as LastnameFirstname_score.PDF.
• Video Submissions: note that for works involving video, only the audio portion will be considered for judging purposes. You must be the composer of the music for the video. Please submit an MP3 of the music as specified above.
• Only one (1) entry per student.
Other than the filename, please make sure to remove your name from all files, including MP3 metadata and PDF scores. Please limit the total size of all files to 40MB.
This same work may be submitted to the SEAMUS 2014 National Conference via the conference submission page. All finalists in the ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Commission Competition must attend the SEAMUS 2014 National Conference. Submissions by High School and Undergraduate students will automatically be considered for the Allen Strange Memorial Award as well.
A maximum of two prizes may be awarded. The decision of the judges will be final.
• Commission of $1250 for a new work of electro-acoustic music
• Performance of commissioned work at the 2016 SEAMUS National Conference

All completed submissions will be verified for student status against current SEAMUS membership records.
Yes it's up there now :)
The most noticeable change from a user point of view is that individual part
outputs (corresponding to channel sends on a hardware mixer) are no longer
affected by the main volume control. The panel window has also been updated to
reflect this situation, and red 'clip' bars have been added.
The accuracy of peak and clip indication has been improved and decay times
increased to give a smoother, clearer response.
There are the usual crop of small refinements and bugfixes under the hood.
At the moment Sourceforge is still showing 1.2.3 as the latest version,
although 1.2.4 is there at the top of the 'files' list.
This happened once before and can't remember what the solution was. Has anyone
else had this happen?

The Guitarix project never accepted Donations, and still wouldn't do.
But, if you ever wished to donate the project, I would kindly ask you to
back the MOD Kickstarter campaign here:
to reach this Goal:
> If the campaign reaches U$100.000 the MOD Duo will offer an Audio
> Interface from it's USB connection. This means that when you plug the
> MOD Duo to your computer you will be presented with a 4 input audio
> device (two pre-processed + two post-processed) that can be used for
> recording the MOD's audio directly to your favorite software.
> Add this to the quality of our analog circuit and you'll have, as a
> free bonus, a professional grade audio interface that if bought alone
> would cost the price of a MOD Duo.
