We currently have no official release date for the LV2 versions, other than to say soon. (And of course, the LV2 plug-ins will use the same license key as all the other versions, so will be free to existing users.)

The most common request from Linux users continues to be, "Are your plug-ins going to be available in LV2 format?" And I'm pleased to officially announce: yes. We've in-house LV2 native versions of our entire plug-in line running in LV2 native format, and to prove it, here's a quick glance at String in Ardour 3.

It's time for another update: Sequent 1.3.0 is now available.
Sequent is a step-sequenced multi-effect processor with a flexible modular effects routing system, an incredibly powerful beat looper, twenty-three parameter sequencers, and a wealth of randomization options. Sequent is the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio. Sequent is available for Mac OS X v 10.4 and above, Windows XP and above, and Linux, in Audio Unit, VST plugin, RTAS for Pro Tools 7 and above, and Standalone application formats.
What's new in Sequent 1.3.0 :
- Native 64-bit VST plug-in for Mac OS X (64-bit VST support requires Mac OS X 10.6 or greater; 64-bit Audio Unit requires Mac OS X 10.5 or greater; all other formats require Mac OS X 10.4 or greater. )
- Bitcrusher effect added to distortion module.
- Massively improved speed and responsiveness of all UI controls.
- Improved CPU usage when wiring effects in the modular view.
- Improved CPU usage when tweaking parameters from a hardware controller.
- Improved CPU usage when rapidly switching patterns.
- Sequence syncing is now more reliable for hosts which provide only periodic PPQ positional information.
- Rotary controls for Looper mode and Filter types are now replaced by combo controls.
- For the Windows VST plug-in, when using a relative path for the presets folder, the path is now relative to the DLL, not the host.
- Standalone versions now support multiple simultaneous hardware controllers.
- MIDI Program Changes are now multi-threaded, and so will no longer potentially stall the audio synthesis.
- Fix for GUI freeze that could occur in certain Mac OS X VST hosts.
- Preset searches are now multi-threaded. Preset browser can now immediately respond to user interaction, even whilst searching a massive preset library, or when browsing a folder containing a large number of presets.
- Added soft notching for volume and crossfade controls, making unity volume and 50% crossfade mix easier to dial in.
- Fixed extremely rare crash that could occur on a minority of Windows 32-bit systems when opening the UI.
- Preset meta data (ie, author name, notes, tags) is now correctly displayed after loading an .FXP based preset or restoring a saved project.
- Standalone application tempo can now be set to within two decimal places of accuracy.
