Ardour 2.0 RC1 now available

Ardour v2.0rc1 and the Mac OS X Tiger universal DMG have been released, featuring dozens of bug fixes, a few usability improvements, even a couple of new features (e.g. rename&delete snapshots).

This is first release candidate for 2.0, but it is missing last minute tweaks, specifically up to date and complete translations. RC2 is expected to be released within the next 7-10 days which will hopefully be the final release before 2.0.
