Excellent Friday evening, all!

I'm not an expert on this, but isn't the number 13 special in some way,
and Friday the 13th as a date especially special? Didn't they have
something to do with luck? They're the universal lucky number and day,
right? If I remember that correctly, then this is a very special
announcement for us superstitious people! Today is the day when
PulseAudio 13.0 has became a thing that exists - may this release bring
great luck to us all!

This release brings the following changes:

 * Added support for Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio
 * Improved initial card profile selection for ALSA cards
 * Bluetooth card profile choices aren't persistent any more by default

 * New "max_latency_msec" module argument for module-loopback
 * New "stream_name" module argument for module-rtp-send
 * Fixed S/PDIF for CMEDIA USB2.0 High-Speed True HD Audio
 * Use source sample spec and channel map by default in module-loopback
 * New "avoid_resampling" module argument for module-udev-detect and
 * "avoid_resampling" also tries to avoid format conversion if the
   ALSA device supports it
