This is just a short post to inform you that Ardour 3 is approaching alpha stage. While it might still take a while before it is actually released, this is exciting news for recording enthusiasts. Ardour 3 is a major step forward for this DAW, with MIDI support possibly being the most anticipated feature. The list of new features and improvements is long, and I suggest you take a look at their own website. From the main feature list you can click down to a more detailed description (which is why I don't duplicate that list here). You can find the list here.
