I have asked... The short answer, is when it is ready. Daniel has newly appointed two more core developers, and things are starting to move towards getting 3.0 into shape for a release candidate.

Current version in the 64studio V 3 beta I downloaded yesterday was jackdmp v 0.73. So it wouls seem, so far, to be an earlier but multicore version. (jackd -V gived the answer for your version) Steve

Yes.

Jack 1.92 (formerly known as jackdmp) is the multi cpu version of jack. It also runs well on single cpu systems, in that a single core pc is only a mulitore pc with one core ;-)
