WMixer is a complete OSS mixer solution in dockapp form factor. All channels are supported, stereo channels balance can be adjusted, and main recording source can be set. Volume can also be adjusted using the mousewheel on newer mice, the mixer automatically updates if another program changes mixer channels, and it uses very little CPU time. There is also an "On-Screen-Display" feature to visualize current volume using a TV-like volume bar.

Release Notes: This is a major code rewrite, with a much better mixer library, new knob drawing routine, new configuration parsing routine, a more intuitive mouse control code for knob and slider dragging, removal of runtime config parsing, new command line options to specify X display, config file, and mixer device, removal of "mixermax" code until someone complains, and configurable current channel title scrolling.
Release Notes: This release fixes the unscaled font problem with the OSD. WMixer now creates a pid file for easier access to volume controls with signals, and includes a workaround for old versions of OSS drivers which occasionally returned incorrect mixer data.
Release Notes: The OSD now really stays on-top of other windows using WM hints, and various other small changes and fixes have been implemented.
Release Notes: Configuration file parsing was added. Changes are dynamically loaded while WMixer is running. All previous compile-time options are now in the configuration file. OSD color and mousewheel sensitivity can now be adjusted as well.
Release Notes: Now listens on SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 and adjusts the volume up or down when each is received. This could be used to remotely control the mixer by using "volume" keys included on some recent keyboards provided your window manager and X-Server support this.
