Since yesterday PA glitch-free is available in Fedora Rawhide. If you
feel adventurous, please try it out and file bugs in the PA BTS (not
rhbz, please, I don't like bz.)

Please note that glitch-free PA triggers a bug in the ALSA HDA
drivers. This will cause PA to detect buffer underruns much more often
than they actually happen. The day before yesterday Takashi prepared a
fix for this. So if you want to test glitch-free PA, you *must* apply
this patch, unless you are one of the 10% or so of people remaining who have
something that is not an HDA sound card.


Please also note that module-combine and module-tunnel are not working
in glitch-free yet. Most other stuff should work fine however. If not:
file bugs or ping me on IRC.

The glitch-free branch is now merged into trunk again, in SVN. So if
you want to try this out on non-Fedora make sure to checkout trunk
from SVN.

And if you are not sure what all this glitch-free foo is about, then
read this blog article I posted a while back:
