They've been busy! But the old plugin UIs still remain. Not a high priority I guess.

And freeeeeeeeeee!
One thing that is good for me is they finally allow you to label rows for the step sequencer. Made using 3rd party drums unwieldy.
Not sure about this one, though. I'll sit and watch for a bit.

has this shown up in the app store for anyone yet?
Yes, already downloaded and using it.
Apparently they made a good update to AUv3.
My MIDIFX plug-in which is a App Extension, was showing 8 inputs when trying to load it, now it finally shows 1 input like it should.
Posted that here

Remember, "with great power comes great responsibility"
This applies to Dolby Atmos mixes that every Logic user now can do out to the box. However, this is not just a plugin that you can click your way around. Dolby Atmos has a bit of a learning curve and a new mindset, something you have to wrap your head around before diving into that amazing space.

I provide a lot of easy to follow information in my YouTube video "Mixing in Dolby Atmos - How it Works" that I already introduced on this forum.

Interesting. This is the first time I've seen this in a major DAW. How many others have implemented it?

I'm curious what it means. Enabling Midi 2.0 does what exactly?

Awesome but how do you get MIDI 2 into it (does it include things like MPE controllers?)

Something many of us have been wanting for a long time it:
The Track Inspector now offers separate MIDI input and output port settings

Midi 2.0...interesting. So far I only saw it before in a DAW (available for iOS devices and desktop/laptop) called MultiTrackStudio.
Midi 2 gives a lot higher resolution for example.
A part which the developer from the other DAW said:

"...internally the software can already use MIDI 2.0’s higher resolution – something we’ve been waiting on in MIDI for a long, long time. That means 32-bit resolution for controllers and 16-bit resolution for note velocities, they tell us. You can’t export that as a saved MIDI file, because the file format doesn’t exist yet as part of the standard, though presumably, that’s coming."

I was quite excited to see this as I was reading the release notes.

I don't think that's unique. Most DAWs - at least the new ones, like S1 or Bitwig - seem to represent MIDI internally as their own, high-res format and only translate it on-the-fly to official MIDI spec before passing it on to VSTs or external synths.
