Although not in your changelogs, I saw you also included two of my fixes
for the ALSA directaudio backend which I posted back in May on
sound-dev, and which are included in icedtea already.
- The sloppy open/close patch:
- The ALSA native lock patch:
Although it makes some applets that use some primitive sound output work
better I never got a real response. Did you get someone from the sound
team to look at these patches? They do seem to work for me and the few
test users of those applets, but a full review by one of the sound
engineers would be appreciated. They don't seem to be in the JDK7 tree.
Karl did correctly pointed out back then that we just need a better/new
sound backend. I do hope in time the pulseaudio backend that Ioana and
Omair are working on will be that backend.
