Mixxx 2.3.5 released

Date Author Nikolaus Einhauser Tag 2.3, 2.3.5, release announcement

Another bugfix release, this soon?

Yes, unfortunately it turned out that 2.3.4 introduced a couple of serious bugs that required prompt action to fix in order to rectify this subpar release.

The most serious issue we fixed was a regression that caused an empty waveform overview after loading a track. This issue has been fixed in version 2.3.5, along with several other bug fixes and improvements.

Other notable changes include requesting microphone and line-in access on macOS, allowing explicit selection of buffers of 2048 and 4096 frames per period in the JACK API, making the Beat FX section of the Pioneer DDJ-400 more intuitive, and fixing a visual issue with the the VU peak indicators in the Tango skin.

Overall, version 2.3.5 aims to improve stability and performance while addressing the issues introduced in the previous release. Users are encouraged to update to this version as soon as possible to ensure the best possible experience while using Mixxx.
