PulseAudio, the common Linux sound server that initially caused many headaches for Linux desktop users, has finally reached version 1.0.

PulseAudio 1.0 has been in development for quite a while, but after containing lots of experimental features and code and going through much review, it's now released.

Among the features of PulseAudio 1.0 is a D-Bus based control protocol, source output volumes, passthrough audio support, echo cancellation support, restored Windows support, and improved sample rate adaptation in the module-rtp-receive module.

Still on the radar for the PulseAudio project is use-case manager support, headphone/mic jack detection, module loading improvements, a routing infrastructure, adoption of WebRTC for echo cancellation, and more use of ORC (OIL Runtime COmpiler) for CPU-intensive tasks.

Find more about PulseAudio 1.0 from the FreeDesktop.org Wiki notes page.
