The folks responsible for the Ardour Digital Audio Workstation on Linux and OS X have tagged v5.0-pre0.

This Ardoir 5.0-pre0 marking comes as the developers merged two of their development branches and their plans to do this major release to succeed the current Ardour 4.7 stable series. The current nightly builds of Ardour 5.0 are said to be for test-only and should be used with just "throw-away material" as it's not yet vetted compared to Ardour 4.x versions.

Among the new features so far for Ardour 5.0-pre0 are support for temp ramps and VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) masters.
