ALSA 1.0.25 Is Out With Many Linux Audio Changes

Filed under
Software

ALSA, the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture, last saw a major update in February of 2011. That changed this morning when ALSA 1.0.25 was released, which is a big feature release.

(You'll just want to check the change-log for the hardware that's relevant to you.)

- The ALSA driver sound core now builds against the newer Linux 3.x kernels. On the matter of maintenance, the support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 was also addressed with a compilation fix.
