Software Releases:
Butt (Broadcast Using This Tool) Version 0.1.12 (2010-04-10) - Has minor changes and is the last planned release. Butt is now able to connect automatically after startup, it has shortened time between connect attempts (fixes Shouted.FM connection problems) and lastly, there is improved wrong password detection for shoutcast. http://sourceforge.net/projects/butt/files/butt/butt-0.1.12/

- Ardour 2.8.10 is released primarily to fix an annoying regression in 2.8.9:
keyboard presses and releases are now correctly sent to Ardour
created plugin GUIs (e.g. for LADSPA plugins), making it possible to
use the keyboard to set parameter values and define preset names.

Audio Releases:

Something to watch - IRC User Stuzz lets us know about some development going on with Linux based handheld gaming device to make it a portable audio device. There's talk of developers 'racing' each other to get music software ported to the Pandora, and one mentioned he'd had a look at porting Ardour over. Audacity is about done already. Also MIDI is working (plugging a USB-MIDI cable in), Seq24 and ZynAddSubFx are underway. See these links:
