PulseAudio Picks Up Bluetooth Support
The group of developers behind PulseAudio, the Linux sound server that's quickly becoming the de facto standard, has today put out their 0.9.13 milestone release. For a large part this release just incorporates bug-fixes that have been addressed in the past month since 0.9.12, but there is one interesting new feature. PulseAudio 0.9.13 introduces support for Bluetooth audio devices, including the dynamic detection. This Bluetooth audio support was done by a student programmer as part of Google's Summer of Code project this year. The Bluetooth support is currently considered experimental but it is enabled by default. For the complete change-log with PulseAudio 0.9.13, check out the their milestone page.
