Looks like we finally managed to get this one out, just shy of a year past the due date (admittedly there are some mitigating circumstances this year!)
There's a _lot_ that went into this release, so the highlights below really aren't complete, and you want to see the full release notes at https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Notes/14.0/
* Rerouting streams when the default sink/source changes is now in the core
* Much improved UCM support, which is now used on newer Intel SOF (Sound Open Firmware) based devices
* Ports now expose their type and "availability group" for UIs to discover which ports are mapped to the the same physical jack (for "what did you plug in" UIs)
* New GStreamer-based RTP backend (off by default)
A lot of people have helped with reporting bugs, submitting translations, testing the point releases, and patiently helping pin down issues, in addition to all the code contributions. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of you. Special mentions: Hui Wang for a number of routing features, Jaroslav Kysela for much of the UCM heavy-lifting, and Igor Kovalenko for helping us take the 14.0 release past the finish line with triage, debugging and fixes.
The release notes also has a section for package maintainers this time, so please take a look and shout at us if you see anything amiss.
