Written by Michael Larabel in Hardware on 22 June 2016 at 08:41 AM EDT. 165 Comments
Version 9.0 of the once-controversial PulseAudio sound server is now available for your open-source audio needs.

First off, PulseAudio 9.0 brings the memfd transport support for Linux systems. This lets PulseAudio use Memfd on newer Linux kernel versions rather than POSIX SHM shared memory.

PulseAudio 9.0 also features automatic routing improvements, new features in the WebRTC echo canceller, LFE remixing is disabled by default, support for sample rates up to 384 kHz, and the C standard for writing PulseAudio shifted from C99 to C11.

Much more information on the PulseAudio 9.0 release can be found via the FreeDesktop.org Wiki.
