    Phoronix: PulseAudio 16.0 Released With A Variety Of Improvements

    While PipeWire continues gaining traction for fulfilling the audio management roles long handled by PulseAudio, the PulseAudio project itself continues progressing and successfully evolving its mature code-base. Out this weekend is PulseAudio 16.0...

    > PulseAudio's pactl command can now dump information in JSON format

    Better late than never, I guess. Had to write a parser for pactl's custom output format for a sink-switching utility I created six years ago or so. That was not particularly nice because of lots of weird text indentations...

      I mean, could you not have used the Pulseaudio API? It's not that bad lol.

        I wonder how long PulseAudio will be maintained, it's been replaced by default on my machines with PipeWire for a while now.

          Obviously till no more applications need libpulse at compile time.

            Not really a realistic option for bash scripts.

              Both are still equally useful for normal users who don't have low latency requirements.

                Are there any that aren't working with PipeWire Pulse left?

                  Please define normal users. There are issues with PulseAudio other than low latency.

                    No, but they all use the pulseaudio client library (libpulse). PipeWire pulse only replaces the server part of pulseaudio.
