Hey guys! Sorry for the delay.




Ubuntu Studio is a multimedia editing/creation flavor of Ubuntu, built
for the GNU/Linux audio, video, and graphics enthusiast or

The Ubuntu Studio team is proud to announce its fifth release: Ubuntu
Studio 9.04. With this release, which you can download in a 1.2GB DVD,
Ubuntu Studio offers a pre-made selection of packages, targeted at
audio, video and graphics users. Ubuntu Studio greatly simplifies the
creation of Linux-based multimedia workstations.

For Ubuntu Studio 9.04 we have continued to update packages and fix
critical bugs to better the Ubuntu Studio user experience.

We are happy to announce the real time kernel will be installed by
default in Ubuntu Studio in this release, if the audio task is
selected. We have tested it heavily and are happy with it's
performance in audio environments.

The art has had a cool facelift. The gtk theme has been improved
staying in the 'Studio' style. Plus the gdm theme has been switched to
some great new eyecandy.

New applications included:

    * FFADO firewire soundcard drivers
    * Calf audio plugins
    * LMMS (updated and included in the meta packages)


    * Heavily tested 2.6.28 realtime kernel for low-latency audio work
    * Jack Connection Kit upgraded to 0.116.1 (a major improvement)
    * Ardour upgraded to 2.7.1
    * Fresh ubuntustudio-looks improvements
    * Addition to Ubuntu Studio Controls to allow users to maintain
          o Ctr+Alt+Backspace behavior

See the Ubuntu release notes for other non Ubuntu Studio specific changes.

See http://calf.sourceforge.net/ for more information about CALF.

As our wiki page at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuStudio states, "our
aim is to make it more accessible for new users to get into the tools
that GNU/Linux has to offer for multimedia creation and production. We
also want to spotlight what's out there, and show users tools they
might not know to exist."

Thanks to all who helped in Ubuntu Studio 9.04's creation!
