Written by Michael Larabel in PipeWire on 21 February 2021 at 12:07 AM EST. 42 Comments
With Fedora 34 aiming to use PipeWire by default for audio use-cases currently handled by PulseAudio and JACK, the Red Hat developers working on PipeWire remain very busy in addressing bugs and wiring up new functionality for this audio and video framework/server.

PipeWire 0.3.22 was released this week with a whole lot of work in trying to see that Fedora 34 this spring can ship with it in use by default. Some of the key PipeWire 0.3.22 highlights include per-client configuration files, Pro Audio card profile support, better handling in the JACK library, a number of Bluetooth audio improvements, and "small fixes and improvements all over the map."

Some of the specific PipeWire 0.3.22 changes to note include support for restrictions requested by a client (such as for Flatpak policies), support for optionally disabling DBus support, HFP HF profile support for Bluetooth audio support, tweaks to the PulseAudio server, and as mentioned a lot on the JACK side.

More details on this big PipeWire update via the FreeDesktop.org GitLab release.
