PipeWire 0.3 Released With Redesigned Scheduling Code To Offer JACK2-Like Performance
PipeWire 0.3 comes with redesigned scheduling mechanisms that should now offer its JACK compatibility layer performance that is comparable to JACK2.
Further making PipeWire 0.3 a big release is that its API is now deemed stable, there is a session manager to control the PipeWire graph, and the PulseAudio / JACK / ALSA compatibility layers are all in good shape. The ALSA compatibility layer is in best standing while future PipeWire releases will continue optimizing the JACK and PulseAudio layers.
