Hi folks,
I'm pleased to announce that PulseAudio 3.0 is now out!

For those of you following the release candidates, there has been only
one minor commit since 2.99.3. A full set of release notes is up at
(props to Tanu for populating most of it):


The tl;dr version for the lazy is: easier setup when your device is a
Bluetooth source, some ARM NEON optimisations, configurable latency
offsets, ALSA UCM support for embedded folks, and a _lot_ of other fixes
and infrastructure changes.

Packagers, please do look at the packaging section on the wiki for some
changes that you should be aware of.

Tarballs are at:

MD5: cc6e7cafff9249c5066263ee578662de
SHA1: 875ee8c39bb8413007004ffd31f6b35d6508a194

Our thanks go out to all contributors, old and new, for being awesome
and contributing to PulseAudio. Special mentions for our 3 GSoC students
whose work is also included in this release. We hope to continue seeing
their names in the shortlog in future releases.

A new version of Pavucontrol will follow soon, exposing some of the new
features that have been added in recent times.
