Updates for June 2019 
<http://ubuntustudio.org/2019/06/updates-for-june-2019/>
We hope that Ubuntu Studio 19.04’s release has been a welcome update 
for our users. As such, we are continuing our work on Ubuntu Studio 
with our next release scheduled for October 17, 2019, codenamed “Eoan 
Ermine”.

Bug Fix for Ubuntu Studio Controls
A bug identified in which the ALSA-Jack MIDI bridge was not surviving a 
reboot was fixed and updated in Ubuntu 19.04. As such, please make sure 
all of your packages are up-to-date.

New Features Coming to Ubuntu Studio Controls
We have already done a lot of work to Ubuntu Studio Controls 
<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/UbuntuStudioControls> 
for 19.10, and as such we have several new features already landing:

Multiple PulseAudio Bridges (for routing of individual 
applications)In-Window Jack Status IndicatorDSP Usage MeterQuick-links 
to QASMixer, Carla, and PulseAudio Control
These features are currently available in Eoan Ermine’s daily ISO 
images. After we have determined there has been sufficient testing (or 
19.10 is released, whichever comes first), we will backport this 
version of Ubuntu Studio Controls to our backports PPA 
<https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuStudio/BackportsPPA>.

LSP-Plugins Coming to Ubuntu Studio 19.10
The Linux Studio Plugins Projec <https://lsp-plug.in/>t is a collection 
of 91 Ladspa, LV2, and VST audio plugins compatible with Carla, Ardour, 
and other DAWs. These plugins are to be included by default in Ubuntu 
Studio 19.10, and are *currently available in the Backports PPA for 
18.04, 18.10, and 19.04.* If you feel as though Ubuntu Studio is 
lacking in audio plugins, this should no longer be the case.

For a full list of plugins available, check out the official 
documentation <https://lsp-plug.in/?page=manuals>.

Other Items in the Backports PPA
Removed ubuntustudio-gnome-branding from ubuntustudio-installer as 
people without the default GNOME Ubuntu were installing it, undesirably 
pulling-in GNOME packages.The default wallpaper for 19.04 was slightly 
“fixed” and is available to 18.04 and 18.10 in the 
“ubuntustudio-disco-wallpapers” package, along with a version 
without the Ubuntu Studio logo in the lower-right corner.An updated 
package of the Calf Studio Gear plugins to 0.90.2 for 18.04, 18.10, and 
19.04
Ubuntu Studio 18.10 END-OF-LIFE Coming on July 18th, 2019
If you have not already upgraded from Ubuntu Studio 18.10 to 19.04, 
*you have just over a month left to do so* before Ubuntu Studio 18.10 
reaches End-Of-Life and will no longer be supported. Ubuntu 18.10 and 
all official flavors reach End-Of-Life on *July 18, 2019*. Mark your 
calendar and upgrade as soon as possible!

Upgrading is available via the Software Updater and the command line 
“do-release-upgrade” tool.

If you have added the Backports PPA, please install and run ppa-purge 
tool before upgrading for the best upgrade experience:

> sudo apt install ppa-purge
> 
> sudo ppa-purge ppa:ubuntustudio-ppa/backports
>
