It is currently unreleased, and has been for a very long time. I am
aware this situation is less than ideal :) It will be stable/released
at some point. My work on LV2 is pretty much a direct offshoot of
working on Ingen - if you want a powerful modular environment that uses
(almost) exclusively generic plugins, you first need a powerful enough
generic plugin interface. We're getting there. :)
The nice thing about generic plugins, though, is that porting e.g. the
AMS modules to LV2 benefits any program that uses LV2 plugins. Ingen
will some day fill that role (and more, being designed to go beyond the
VCO/VCA/VCF "modular synth" thing into Max/Pd like territory). I am, of
course, biased, but personally I think porting any valuable DSP bits
currently jailed within a single program to (LV2) plugins is one of the
best contributions to LAD that could be made right now.
