EsounD mixes multiple digitized audio streams and samples together for playback by a single audio device. It also allows monitoring of mixed output, and recording. Network connections to the daemon are supported as well.
Release Notes: MMAP support was added for esddsp. GNU/kFreeBSD support was added. New default_options were added in the configuration file and environment variable. The ALSA default alias is used. The code was cleaned.
Release Notes: The new ALSA PCM API is used, if it is available. Building on AIX, OSF, and Darwin was fixed. The program no longer tries to close the audio device if it is not opened. Building with the latest version of automake was fixed, so version 1.4 of automake is no longer required. A typo in the manpage was fixed. A crash which occurred when AUDIODEV doesn't contain "/" was fixed.
Release Notes: The build process has been fixed when IPv6 is disabled. Missing files in the tarball have been fixed.
Release Notes: IPv6 support, Cygwin support, Mac OS X CoreAudio support, always reads the esd config file (not just when auto-spawning), prevents drop-outs for hardware allowing low period_size (ALSA), fixes man pages, has major code cleanup, ensures esd_open_audio succeeds if interrupted, allows 0 as an auto-standby value, allows simultaneous play and record on Solaris, and adds support for session names to esdcat.
