Hi folks,
I'm happy to announce that PulseAudio 15.0 is out!

tarball: https://www.freedesktop.org/software/pulseaudio/releases/pulseaudio-15.0.tar.xz
sha256: a40b887a3ba98cc26976eb11bdb6613988f145b19024d1b6555c6a03c9cba1a0

This is a big release, and you likely want to see the full release notes at https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Notes/15.0/


  * Lots of Bluetooth features (more A2DP codecs, native HFP support with mSBC for better audio quality, AVRCP Absolute Volume)
  * Card profiles can be made sticky, so (un)plugging does not reset state (helpful with HDMI replugging changing outputs, for examples)
  * New messaging API to allow easier extension of the core API
  * Virtual surround sink completely rewritten
  * Autotools dropped in favour of meson
  * Improved hardware support
  * ALSA path configuration can live in user home directory\
  * Translation updates
  * Bug fixes and a lot more

Package maintainers will want to check the relevant section of the release notes.

Special thanks go out to everyone who spent a lot of time testing, troubleshooting, and reporting issues from git builds and release candidates.

Finally, I'd also like to welcome Igor Kovalenko, Marijn Sujiten and Sanchayan Maity to the development team!
