X11, Window Managers Cairo v1.4.6 is released and it's got a "particularly juicy performance fix, (working around an X server performance bug), as well as native PDF gradients with alpha". In other interesting open source releases, the powerful audio application Ardour v2.0 was released (with Mac OS X support).

Sorry, it's not that great for the professionnal sound designer for a simple reason : no drivers support on linux (through alsa or oss non free) for so called professionnal sound card devices, the ones you'll pay at least 1000 euros and which are able to record simultaneously more than 16 tracks in stereo in 96 khz at the same time. I know it's not ardour's fault of course, but still.

As long as it can't match Cubase VST on a feature 2 feature basis, it'll stay a toy, a nice one, still, but a toy.
