PulseAudio, a sound system for POSIX OSes, working as a proxy for sound applications which allows user to do advanced operations on sound data, is now at version 2.0.
It took almost six months to get a new version, but PulseAudio 2.0 was worth the wait. It comes with a lot of new key features, updates, and important bugfixes.
Highlights of PulseAudio 2.0:
• Jack detection has been implemented, but more advanced features regarding this function will be implemented in the future;

• HURD support has been fixed;
• The quality of A2DP decoder has been improved;
• The Speex library is now optional.
