PulseAudio 6.0 has been released! Since 5.0, we have over 400 patches
contributed by 50 people, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. All
the millions of you who are using it, testing it, discussing it with
your friends or random people who are wrong on the Internet ,
reporting bugs, answering questions on support forums, IRC channels,
Facebook etc, or in other ways have been caring for PulseAudio, you have
all helped shape PulseAudio into what it is today. Thank you!
New stuff in PulseAudio 6.0 include:
* BlueZ 5 native HSP (headset) support
* BlueZ 5 HFP (hands-free) profile support via oFono
* systemd socket activation support
* Better support for multichannel and 2.1 profiles
* Remap optimisations
...and many other improvements, bug fixes, and i18n updates. Full
release notes are here:
Make sure you read them before upgrading - there might be some caveat
that affects you (e g, the extra-hdmi.conf transition will likely apply
to many people).
The tarballs are available here:
