Attending GUADEC

Post Syndicated from Lennart Poettering original http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/guadec-2006.html

Due to the generosity of the GNOME Foundation I have been able to get to the GUADEC 2006 this year. I’d like to thank Jeff Waugh and Quim Gil for the “last-minute” funding of my trip to Vilanova, and all the sponsors who actually are providing the funds. If anyone wants to talk to me about Avahi and/or PulseAudio (aka Polypaudio) (or any of my other projects), just try to find and speak to me. (Bungalow 870)

In related news, the new PulseAudio homepage will be “inaugurated” soon, becoming the official new home of PulseAudio/Polypaudio as soon as we release 0.9.2, which hopefully will be pretty soon.

TPFKAPA: The Project Formerly Known as Polypaudio

Post Syndicated from Lennart Poettering original http://0pointer.net/blog/projects/pulse.html

It came to our attention that some people really disliked the name of Polypaudio, because
it reminded them of that medical condition,
though the software was actually named after the sea dweller. I actually
liked that double entendre, but many did not and expressed concerns that the name
would hinder Polypaudio’s adoption. After a long discussion on
#polypaudio we came to the conclusion that a name change is a good
idea in this case. Name changes are usually a bad idea, but this time it’s
worth it, we think.

The new name we agreed on is PulseAudio, or shorter just Pulse. It has
the nice advantage that it abbreviates to pa, just as Polypaudio did. This
allows us to keep source code compatiblity (and binary compatibility to a
certain degree) with the current releases of Polypaudio, because the symbol
prefix can stay pa_. In addition the auxiliary tools paman, pavucontrol, pavumeter need not to
be renamed.

We will try to make the transition as smooth as possible and would like to
apologize to all the packagers, who need to rename their packages now.

The next release of Polypaudio (0.9.2) will be a bugfix release and be the first to bear the new name: PulseAudio 0.9.2.

Polypaudio is dead. Long live PulseAudio!
