May I have your attention, please?

PulseAudio 12.0 has entered our world, and it claims to be superior to
its predecessors at least in the following ways:

 * Better latency reporting (and hence better A/V sync) with the A2DP
   bluetooth profile
 * Much more accurate latency reporting for AirPlay devices
 * Fixed a crash or high CPU use problem with Intel HDMI LPE
 * module-switch-on-connect now ignores virtual devices
 * When using passthrough for compressed audio, set the "non-audio" bit
 * Prioritize HDMI output over S/PDIF output
 * HSP support for more bluetooth headsets
 * Choose the A2DP bluetooth profile by default instead of HSP
 * New "sink_input_properties" module argument for module-ladspa-sink
 * New "use_system_clock_for_timing" module argument for
 * module-pipe-sink can now use an existing pipe
 * Steelseries Arctis 7 USB headset stereo output support
 * Dell Thunderbolt Dock TB16 speaker jack support
 * Fixed digital input support for some USB sound cards
 * Fixed Native Instruments Traktor Audio 6 detection
 * Ability to disable input or output on macOS
 * New "dereverb" option for the Speex echo canceller
 * New module: module-always-source
 * State files not any more readable by all users in the system mode
 * module-augment-properties now uses XDG_DATA_DIRS to find .desktop
 * Updates for the Vala bindings
 * The GConf dependency can now be avoided
 * qpaeq license changed from AGPL to LGPL
 * qpaeq ported to Qt 5
 * Compatibility with glibc 2.27
 * The esdcompat tool isn't any more installed if esound support is

This stuff is explained in more detail in the release notes:
