Release Notes: This release adds support for FreeBSD (x86 and AMD64), DragonFlyBSD (x86), NetBSD (x86), OpenBSD (x86), and Solaris (x86 and SPARC). There are bugfixes in the OSS audio core, options for the ICH driver to force MMIO mode, options for the CS4280 driver to disable CLKRUN, and bugfixes for Virtual Mixer device handling.
Release Notes: An ATI IXP AC97 audio device was added along with a "record-what-you-hear" feature for AC97-based soundcards. 200KHz record and playback support for LynxTWO and Lynx22 devices was added, and SPDIF support was implemented for SoundBlaster 4.1-Digital/SBPCI128-Digital devices. Automatic boot setup problems were fixed along with installation problems on Debian systems. Better Linux 2.6 integration was achieved.
Release Notes: OSS now automatically creates symlinks called /dev/dsp_ac3 and /dev/dsp_multich to devices in /dev that support AC3 passthrough or multi-channel output. Apps can now just open /dev/dsp_ac3 if they want AC3/SPDIF output or /dev/dsp_multich to do 4/5.1 mulitichannel analog output. This helps in easily identifying AC3 or Multichannel devices when OSS apps need to do AC3 or Multichannel output. ossctl has been updated to show AC3/multi-channel devices. There is easy identification of AC3 or multi-channel-capable devices. Fixed ISA DMA bugs for Linux 2.6 kernels have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release is available only for Linux on x86 and AMD-64. It has support for Linux 2.6 kernels compiled with CONFIG_REGPARM, and fixes for the IMUX driver.
Release Notes: In this release, the AC3 passthrough on SB Audigy and Audigy2 is finally working. Multi-channel (5.1/4.0) analog playback on SB Live, Audigy, and Audigy2-LS was added. LynxTWO support for Linux 2.4 was fixed. Record gain and mic boost were added for ESS1688 and ESS Solo-1. Virtual Mixer PRO was added as a standard feature for OSS 3.99.1.
Release Notes: Excessive CPU consumption in Virtual Mixer has been fixed. Audigy2-LS mixer volume controls have been added, as well as support for AC3 passthrough. MIXER_MAP ioctls and\ Softsynth lockup problems have been fixed.
Release Notes: This version fixes Nvidia Nforce2 audio and SPDIF problems, and MAudio Revolution 7.1 recording problems, and adds support for Chaintech Envy24PT models and "project cuckoo".
