Super old software, why?
I might be missing the point completly as I am linux noob, but still... I've succesfully installed 64 studio 2.0. Before that i looked at JAD 1.0 and Ubuntu studio 7.10 I want to use freewheeling audio looper and Sooperlooper, but to my suprise the only package with the distro is the very old 0.5.1 something (i'm sorry for not being precise - can't cause i dont have my linuxbox at hand right now. I think its years from the current stable freewheeling release) According to the freewheeling website the current stable release i 0.5.5 And the current svn version you can get is 0.5.6. The 64 studio distro version is 2 or more years old!?! i dont get it. Sooperlooper is also in the distro but here the case is the same. The software seems very old. I havn't check Adour, terminator or any of the other preinstalled audio software packages. Maybe theese a very old versions as well...? I tried to update to etch but i dosn't seem to change the versionnumbers of this very much. --- Now, i'm getting very nice low latencies and in general everything seems to run VERY stable. Is that because all software is old hehe :-? Is the 64 concept perhapse to sacrifice features for stability, and if it is, how much behind will I be as a 64 studio user. Thomas
