Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"There hasn't been much news posted here for a while, so I thought it was appropriate to update subscribers and other supporters of my work on Ardour on what has been going on. Development efforts have ben split (about 60:40) between Ardour 3.0 and continuing work on the 2.X series, both to fix bugs and to support the continuing improvement of Mixbus.

"3.0 has been through some incredibly deep changes over the last 2-3 months, some of which I'm reluctant to describe because they involve arcane details of programming and would bore those of you who choose not to track the changes via the commit mailing list. One exciting (and deep) change has been the move towards having the Ardour history list just record changes to things like Playlists, rather than recording their before and after state. This might seem like an obvious way to do things, and indeed, its been in the "todo sometime" list for ages. But as usual Carl H. jumped in and got the ball rolling, and it became so clearly the right approach that I took over and flushed most of the old approach away. The result is that the history list now takes up a lot less memory - with big sessions or sessions that have hundreds or more regions in a track, the impact is very dramatic."
