Some of the changes include Intel HDMI/DisplayPort audio regression fixes, better handling of malformed firmware within the USB audio driver, Firewire device handling improvements, further improvements to the ASoC topology API, various Intel Atom driver updates, capture support on Qualcomm drivers, driver support for Freescale systems with Cirrus codecs, support for Mediatek systems with RT5650 codecs, a new Realtek RT5514 codec driver, and a number of ongoing improvements to Intel Skylake audio support.
