I am very curious to know what's new in Ardour 4.0. Methinks there won't be a separate piano roll window for MIDI creation/editing. :)

I'm working with 4.0 Beta. No crashes in Midi 'til now. Everything is much more stable.

I'll be keen to find out whether the stability has improved. I also experienced crashes when working with midi, very often. I had posted bug reports and asked many times on the irc channel about it but it was never really addressed. I gave up and moved on to other software but I'm glad to hear it wasn't just me though and that hopefully this has been fixed.

The stability is improved in the git versions of Ardour3. Also, I found that templates I created in earlier versions of Ardour3 would be unstable when opened in later versions. 3.5.403 with a fresh template cleared up the stability problems for me. The git versions cleared up the sporadic missing note problems. I'd expect Ardour4 to be even better.

The devs have said several times that the 4.0 nightlies are now much more stable than the last released 3.5 version. I think this will be a big stability improvement. I keep checking daily hoping for the release announcement, but it will be ready when it's ready. That's the FLOSS way (which is a promise of stability though).

Why the version number difference? I know the big thing from 2 to 3 was midi. What features does going from 3 to 4 supply?

There are quite a few significant backend changes (graphics is one, I believe they also now are able to run using only alsa, lots of midi work). Most of them won't be obvious to the user, but I can understand why they want to consider it a major version change.

No longer based on JACK? I may be understanding you wrong, but that was one or ardour's greatest strengths as a DAW!

Edit:Went to the nightly build site, I think I understand now, JACK is optional. A benefit for windows build with so little software compatible on windows with it.

Right. Able to, but no means required to. It can now use a multitude of backends, greatest of which IMO is JACK. :D
