JACK is a low-latency audio server, written primarily for the GNU/Linux
operating system. It can connect a number of different applications to
an audio device, as well as allowing them to share audio between
themselves. Its clients can run in their own processes (ie. as normal
applications), or can they can run within the JACK server (ie. as a

JACK is different from other audio server efforts in that it has been
designed from the ground up to be suitable for professional audio work.
This means that it focuses on two key areas: synchronous execution of
all clients, and low latency operation.

JACK is available at http://jackit.sf.net


Buffer resizing enabled by default.
Added jack_ringbuffer_peak() to API.
Added jack_last_frame_time() to API.
--verbose will print the maximum usecs used on jackd termination.
Better compatibility with NPTL.
--version output changed for easier parsing.
New --unlock/-u option so that large libraries (gtk, qt, fltk, wine)
aren't memlocked.
Jack's tmp files now have the uid appended to them, so if there is a
crash, and then another user tries to use jack, it will still work.
New jack_create_thread() cleans up threading for portability. Available
for use by jack clients too.
New CoreAudio driver from the Jackosx project included in jack tree.
Prettier configure output.

and of course, updated documentation, better error reporting, and misc
internal fixes and cleanups.
