- The "pipe" backend used output code that would block if the pipe didn't have a reader. This has been replaced by non-blocking code. Here are some implications:
- When the pipe is created, Shairport Sync will not block if a reader isn't present.
- If the pipe doesn't have a reader when Shairport Sync wants to output to it, the output will be discarded.
- If a reader disappears while writing is occuring, the write will time out after five seconds.
- Shairport Sync will only close the pipe on termination.
