Grame is pleased to announce the release of Faust

Faust is a functional programming language for real-time signal
processing and synthesis that targets high-performance audio processing
applications and plugins. The Faust compiler translates Faust programs
into optimized C++ code for a variety of audio platforms : Jack, Alsa,
OSS, Ladspa, VST, MaxMSP, Q, PD, SuperCollider, etc.

What's new ?

- Pattern Matching : introduction of pattern matching based definitions,
a powerful programming technique used in many modern functional
programming languages like Q, Haskell, ML, CAML, Clean, etc.

- Support for QT4 applications : two new architecture files have been
added to generate native QT4 applications : jack-qt.cpp and alsa-qt.cpp.
Use 'make jackqt' and 'make alsaqt' in the examples folder to generate
QT4 applications.

- Improved GTK support : all GTK architecture files have been updated to
correct the reversed vertical slider issue.

- 64-bits compatibility : the Faust compiler and the generated C++ code
are now fully 64-bits compatible.

- Improved Max/Msp support : the compilation process has been
simplified. It now directly uses gcc instead of xcode projects. It is
based on Max/MSP 4.6 SDK and generates universal binary .mxo on Intel

We are grateful to all the contributors of this new release, with a
special mention to A. Graef for the implementation of the Pattern
Matching extension.
