We are happy to announce a new minor version of Giada coming out from our laboratories. This time we have fixed plenty of glitches around the user interface, performed some code refactoring and added some nice improvements such as the ability to remove empty columns manually from the main window. Also, our friend yurivict added support for FreeBSD: thank you a lot for this!
As always, Giada 0.16.1 “Goblins” binaries are ready for download in the download area, along with the full changelog.
After some months of development, we are happy to announce Giada 0.16.0 codename “Dungeons and Catacombs”. This version brings in many architectural changes and improvements to the audio rendering thread, as well as the UI layer. We want to get ready for the long-awaited version 1.0 with a solid, reliable and easy to extend audio engine.
Given all these important changes, patches/projects created with Giada prior to version 0.16.0 won't be supported anymore. Don't worry, though: the Almighty Patch Converter tool will update your projects automatically in a click. Just follow the instructions on that page and you are ready to go :)

Another beta version of Giada 0.16.0 has been baked today in our laboratories. This new release marked as 0.16.0beta2 fixes many annoying bugs and crashes, paving the road for the long-awaited final version 0.16.0.

We are very happy to announce that the first experimental version of Giada from the new 0.16 branch is out and ready to be tested. The most important change is how the engine now talks to the UI, thanks to a complete refactoring of the intermediate layer. This improvement lays the foundation for a solid, flexible architecture and paves the way for the long-awaited 1.0.0 version!
Giada 0.16.0 will also feature a completely overhauled persistence mechanism to save and load your patches/projects, along with many other minor fixes and code beautifications. Unfortunately, patches/projects created with a previous version of Giada are not supported anymore. But don't despair: we are working on a sleek online tool that automatically upgrades your files for you in a click.
The new experimental Giada version, marked as beta1 is available in the download area, along with the latest stable version 0.15.4. Please share your feedback with us and report any bugs you may find!
