PulseAudio 1.0 Is Now Released With New Features
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.
