Following a good two months of testing, the development team has released a version 0.9.15 of PulseAudio. New features in the latest version of the open source sound server include native support for Bluetooth devices (using BlueZ), Apple’s AirPort Express and 24 bit samples. The development team has also updated SPDIF support. Audio devices can now be reconfigured on-the-fly. PulseAudio 0.9.15 operates on a flat volume principle, in which per stream and per device volume control is combined.

The project's milestone page lists all the changes.

For Linux, PulseAudio is the successor to the ageing Enlightened Sound Daemon (ESD). Fedora, Ubuntu, Mandriva and openSUSE have all now switched to the new sound server.
