Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.20.1nb1, Package name: openal-soft-1.20.1nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

OpenAL Soft is an LGPL-licensed, cross-platform, software implementation
of the OpenAL 3D audio API.

OpenAL provides capabilities for playing audio in a virtual 3D environment.
Distance attenuation, doppler shift, and directional sound emitters are
among the features handled by the API.

openal-soft: Update to 1.20.1

openal-soft-1.20.1:

    Implemented the AL_SOFT_direct_channels_remix extension. This extends
    AL_DIRECT_CHANNELS_SOFT to optionally remix input channels that don't have
    a matching output channel.

    Implemented the AL_SOFT_bformat_ex extension. This extends B-Format buffer
    support for N3D or SN3D scaling, or ACN channel ordering.

    Fixed a potential voice leak when a source is started and stopped or
    restarted in quick succession.

    Fixed a potential device reset failure with JACK.

    Improved handling of unsupported channel configurations with WASAPI. Such
    setups will now try to output at least a stereo mix.

    Improved clarity a bit for the HRTF second-order ambisonic decoder.

    Improved detection of compatible layouts for SOFA files in makemhr and
    sofa-info.

    Added the ability to resample HRTFs on load. MHR files no longer need to
    match the device sample rate to be usable.

    Added an option to limit the HRTF's filter length.

openal-soft: Update to 1.20.0

pkgsrc changes:

- Support more audio backends.

openal-soft-1.20.0:

    Converted the library codebase to C++11. A lot of hacks and custom
    structures have been replaced with standard or cleaner implementations.

    Partially implemented the Vocal Morpher effect.

    Fixed the bsinc SSE resamplers on non-GCC compilers.

    Fixed OpenSL capture.

    Fixed support for extended capture formats with OpenSL.

    Fixed handling of WASAPI not reporting a default device.

    Fixed performance problems relating to semaphores on macOS.

    Modified the bsinc12 resampler's transition band to better avoid aliasing
    noise.

    Modified alcResetDeviceSOFT to attempt recovery of disconnected devices.

    Modified the virtual speaker layout for HRTF B-Format decoding.

    Modified the PulseAudio backend to use a custom processing loop.

    Renamed the makehrtf utility to makemhr.

    Improved the efficiency of the bsinc resamplers when up-sampling.

    Improved the quality of the bsinc resamplers slightly.

    Improved the efficiency of the HRTF filters.

    Improved the HRTF B-Format decoder coefficient generation.

    Improved reverb feedback fading to be more consistent with pan fading.

    Improved handling of sources that end prematurely, avoiding loud clicks.

    Improved the performance of some reverb processing loops.

    Added fast_bsinc12 and 24 resamplers that improve efficiency at the cost of
    some quality. Notably, down-sampling has less smooth pitch ramping.

    Added support for SOFA input files with makemhr.

    Added a build option to use pre-built native tools. For cross-compiling,
    use with caution and ensure the native tools' binaries are kept up-to-date.

    Added an adjust-latency config option for the PulseAudio backend.

    Added basic support for multi-field HRTFs.

    Added an option for mixing first- or second-order B-Format with HRTF
    output. This can improve HRTF performance given a number of sources.

    Added an RC file for proper DLL version information.

    Disabled some old KDE workarounds by default. Specifically, PulseAudio
    streams can now be moved (KDE may try to move them after opening).

openal-soft: Update COMMENT and DESCR.

This isn't really an 'alternative' any more, it's the implementation
preferred by most vendors.
