Jono Bacon: Jokosher bug-fixing update

Filed under
Ubuntu

I figured it is time for a Jokosher update. As many of you will know, I have been at the Ubuntu Developer Summit for the last week at Mountain View, and I am now in San Francisco at our Allhands company summit. Jokosher really rocked at UDS, and lots of people were interesting in our little project.

Since Nov 1st we have been in feature freeze, and we are now working to get all the bugs fixed. Some highlights of our work:

* On the GStreamer side we have pretty much everything fixed (apart from this bug with LADSPA seeking) and our GStreamer engine is working pretty well.
* Elleo has been working to get the recording code in shape, and we are hoping that our multi-channel support will be stable in time for 0.2. This means that not only will recording work fine on normal sound cards, but also fancy multi-channel sound cards; an essential requirement for professional audio editing.

Debian May Need To Re-Evaluate Its Interest In "Init System Diversity"

Debian Project Leader Sam Hartman has shared his August 2019 notes where he outlines the frustrations and issues that have come up as a result of init system diversity with some developers still aiming to viably support systemd alternatives within Debian. Stemming from elogind being blocked from transitioning to testing and the lack of clarity into that, Hartman was pulled in to try to help mediate the matter and get to the bottom of the situation with a lack of cooperation between the elogind and systemd maintainers for Debian as well as the release team. Elogind is used by some distributions as an implementation of systemd's logind, well, outside of systemd as a standalone daemon. Elogind is one of the pieces to the puzzle for trying to maintain a modern, systemd-free Linux distribution. Read more
