Ardour 6.9 Open-Source DAW Released with All-New Plugin Manager, Many Improvements

Coming about one and a half months after Ardour 6.8, the Ardour 6.9 release is here to introduce an all-new Plugin Manager that shows the user a full list of plugins available on the system along with data about each one, lets you sort and filter plugins by brand, format, name, or tag, and allows you to choose the format that’s best for each plugin and hide the ones that aren’t useful at the moment.
The new Plugin Manager is accessible from the Window top-level menu and comes with new standalone scanner applications for AU and VST format plugins capable of scanning your entire plugin library. In addition, the new scanner dialog lets users skip individual plugins without canceling the entire scan process or you can set it to automatically timeout when taking a break.

Instead of targeting the content on any particular Wikipedia page, the vandal behind this blitz targeted a particular article template used by more than 50,000 different Wikipedia pages, including those for Jennifer Lopez, Joe Biden, and Discworld author Terry Pratchett.

According to an ongoing discussion by a handful of Wikipedia admins on one of the site’s public forums, the template’s since been fixed and the vandal in question — who first joined the site about ten days
