,----[ Quote ]
| The 6.3-RC2 builds for amd64 and i386 should now be available on the
| majority of the FreeBSD mirror sites. I just finished loading the
| sparc64 build so that will take a little while to propagate to the
| mirrors. This is the last planned RC for 6.3. Unless a major
| show-stopper problem is found the release of 6.3 should happen in about
| two weeks.


Catching Up With JOST

,----[ Quote ]
| JOST 0.2.3 is cool. It allows sequential chaining of plugins,
| includes session save/recall, and performs beautifully with
| JACK. But just as I was getting used to its design, Lucio
| decided to rework some of JOST's basic features. This new
| design has resulted in a concurrent beta version of JOST
| (0.3.0) that adds some great new features to this
| already neat software.

| the post-installation configuration I'm very impressed with JAD,

| load it with the JAD distro. Given its excellent performance
| on my ancient iron, I look forward to its performance on a more
| suitable machine.
