    Looks like a wonderful release, many thanks to its developers!

    I wish Debian will use this by default for all the desktop environments, not only for Gnome as they announced.

      Tbh Gnome users are probably the only ones who can't figure out how to install PipeWire themselves. It's dead simple, it bridges from pulse if needed, I only needed to fiddle with a couple of settings.

            Gnome users don't know what that is. :P

              I hope the libcamera video backend will become the default soon / get shipped on distros by default. That would enable a bunch of cameras to work - as long as apps use pipewire (optimally through the xdg camera portal so things can be sandboxed).

                Can I update to this on Linux Mint without breaking things? I'm using pipewire from Ubuntu's repository.

                  Or maybe, just maybe, GNOME does extensive CI/CD tests and officially relies on PipeWire for screensharing, so it's guaranteed to work with a modern codebase without much headaches..

                    I have been running Pipewire with KDE for close to a year with no issues. Also use Pipewire with i3 with no issues on some older laptops. Seems rock solid to me, at least on Arch.
