Ok, let's see where we are now...

Ok, 95% of the bug reports I've received lately have concerned OSS and
ALSA issues, so it looks like ecasound itself is quite stable now. I'll
probably release one more development release (1.8.6), but then it's time
for 1.8.7r15. The critical question is freezing the library APIs. Once I
release a stable version, I can't make any drastic changes until the next

Btw; I've just updated the CVS-tree (committed all patches and fixes
mentioned below).

Yup, applied. I'm still waiting for feedback whether my small
modifications work on freebsd (mainly to pthread detection).

Yup, just did this today.

Yup, applied.

Same here. I'm now following the ogg-vorbis CVS-tree, so ecasound
should stay up-to-date with the vorbis tools.

These are still on the todo-list. I'm not sure how far I should go with
the ECI stuff. Obviously, ECI is such a big module that I could go on for
years just adding a few more things. On the other hand, it would be good
that 1.8.7 had a version of ECI that would actually be useful for making
real-life apps.
