New Feature

An extensively enhanced and updated backend for sndio thanks to the work of t6.

sndio is "the software layer of the OpenBSD operating system that manages the use of sound cards and MIDI ports." Additionally, sndio "... pays special attention to synchronization mechanisms and reliability required by music applications".

Using sndio brings the possibility of "native" synchronisation to *BSD. In fact, it already works but with some workarounds. The synchronization may not be exact, but it doesn't overrun or underrun. More exploration necessary.

Bug fix

  • Fixed an off-by-one bug which allowed one more port than specified in the udp_port_range setting. Thanks to kingosticks for the alert.
  • Various small bugfixes to the sndio backend.
