Fedora 10 Update: esound-0.2.41-1.fc10

Fedora Update Notification

Name        : esound
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.2.41
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/esound
Summary     : Allows several audio streams to play on a single audio device
Description :
EsounD, the Enlightened Sound Daemon, is a server process that mixes
several audio streams for playback by a single audio device. For
example, if you're listening to music on a CD and you receive a
sound-related event from ICQ, the two applications won't have to
queue for the use of your sound card.

Install esound if you'd like to let sound applications share your
audio device. You'll also need to install the audiofile package.

Update Information:

The latest upstream release of esound fixes a number of bugs:           * Fix
32k samples turning into static when 8k samples played in         the middle.
Debian #79145. (Matthew Ashton)         * Fix filter buffer handling so filters
work. Debian #202027.         (Ryan Murray)         * Reconnect the ALSA driver
and reload the config file after         receiving a SIGUSR1. (Martin Pitt)
* Fixed esd_audio_write() to use select() if the driver supports         it
(otherwise usleep) and write data in a configurable block size.         (Ryan
Murray)         * Fixed esound.pc audifile linking. (Josselin Mouette)         *
Fixed esdcat.1. (Josselin Mouette)         * Protect dsp_init() with a mutex
lock. (Josselin Mouette)         * Fixed to allow multiple esd instances (one
per user). (Martin Pitt)         * Fixes to startup time by not trying to exec a
binary if it doesn't         exist. (Martin Pitt)         * Prettier debugging
output. (Ryan Murray)         * Fixed signedness compiler warnings. (Josselin
Mouette)         * Remove libesddsp from LD_PRELOAD when autospawning esd. (Ryan
Murray)         * Fixes for GStreamer using ESPEAKER. (Jeff Waugh)         *
Fixes for mmap64 (Josselin Mouette)         * Close the spawnfd when the startup
is successful. (Josselin Mouette)         * Save a call to esd_audio_pause when
run with -nobeeps. (Josselin Mouette)         * Improved error checking for the
-spawnfd switch. (Josselin Mouette)         * Fixed buffer overflow
possibilities. (Ryan Murray)         * Call snd_pcm_hw_free() before calling
snd_pcm_close() to avoid a         memory leak. (Martin Pitt)         * Add
informative output for -double switch. (Josselin Mouette)         * Use smaller
sleep timeouts. (Josselin Mouette)         * Updated to handle more file formats
supported by audiofile 0.2.3.         (Josselin Mouette)
