Cross Platform Audio Output Library Development

Libao is a cross-platform audio library that allows programs to output audio using a simple API on a wide variety of platforms. It currently supports:

* Null output (handy for testing without a sound device) * WAV files * AU files * OSS (Open Sound System, used on Linux and FreeBSD) * ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) * PulseAudio (next generation GNOME sound server) * esd (EsounD or Enlightened Sound Daemon) * and several others.

This package contains the header files and static libraries required for developing applications that use libao.

Package version:1.0.0-5


libao (1.0.0-5) unstable; urgency=low

  * Need to conflict on libao2 due to /etc/libao.conf stupidness.
  * Added quiet option to libao.conf since libraries shouldn't print error
    messages by default. (Closes: #590961)
  * Added quilt support and debian/README.source
  * Add upstream patch for compiling on BSD with sndio. (Closes: #592013)
