Ubuntu Studio 19.10 (Eoan Ermine) Beta Released

The Ubuntu Studio team is pleased to announce the beta release of Ubuntu
Studio 19.10, codenamed Eoan Ermine.

While this beta is reasonably free of any showstopper CD build or installer
bugs, you may find some bugs within. This image is, however, reasonably
representative of what you will find when Ubuntu Studio 19.10 is released
on October 19, 2019.
New Features

In terms of new features, Ubuntu Studio 19.10 will include several audio
plugins previously not included: over 90 new plugins courtesy of the *Linux
Studio Plugins <https://lsp-plug.in/>* project <https://lsp-plug.in/> and
quite a few from the *DISTRHO Plugins Framework.*

Another major new feature is the inclusion of *OBS Studio
<https://obsproject.com/>* by default, allowing users to get up-and-running
with recording and live streaming out-of-the-box. OBS Studio also includes
Jack integration, allowing interfacing with DAWs such as *Ardour* or using
an audio plugin host such as *Carla*.

With the LADI tools and LADI Session Handler being abandoned, we have
removed those tools and replaced them with *Raysession*
<https://github.com/Houston4444/RaySession>, which is a lightweight session
handler fully compatible with the NON Session Manager API, meaning many
tools already installed are supported. User feedback has shown that
Raysession, paired with *Carla*, is superior to the session management
previously done by LADISH.

*Ubuntu Studio Controls* has been updated with a plethora of new features,
including an indicator showing the state of Jack, the ability to select
other audio backends besides ALSA, the addition of more than one PulseAudio
bridge, improvements to USB audio handling, the addition of button
shortcuts to various audio tools,
