By that time, it was ladish-0.1. We now have ladish-0.2, and apps need
to support it, read, implement special handlers for the ladish

The newly created JACK session API aims more or less at the same, and
apps need to implement it. While there is already support for JACK
session in jackd1's SVN, there is none in jackd2. Nowhere.

OTOH, ladish requires a DBUS-enabled jackd, and this means jackd2 at the

Long story short: This is a moving target, pure development area. The
gladish screenshots look nice, but as long as there's no consensus about
session save API upstream, we trick users into lots of problems: apps
not supporting it, jackds not supporting it and so on.

Rosea: do you use gladish? I never tried it, I only saw some discussion
about it on IRC and the mailing lists. I might be mistaken, so if you
say it's a must have piece of software, then we clearly should get our
