Uniaud32 v1.9.2 (April Fools release)

From: Paul Smedley
v1.9.2 is now available:
uniaud16.sys from Uniaud 1.1.4RC5 is the recommended version
From the readme:
This build of uniaud32.sys has the ALSA code level based completely on ALSA
1.0.16. Uniaud 1.1.4rc5 is based on ALSA versions ranging from 0.9.x
through to 1.0.14. The aim is to provide a version of Uniaud based on the
absolute latest ALSA Code - this is a stepping stone on the way to that.
This will become Uniaud32 2.0 once we feel that it is stabilised and offers
improved support for Audio than Uniaud 1.1.x
Due to the backlevelling of some code - some sound cards that currently
work with Uniaud 1.1.4rc5 may not work with this build.
Specifically, due to compilation issues, the following backends are NOT
- emu10k1 (aka sb live) - linux code loads the firmware from a local
drive in later ALSA versions - this isn't working yet on OS/2
As time permits, support for these will be reinstated.
The source is now in SVN and can be browsed at
Changes since 1.9.0 (25th March release)
- Fix hardware sample rate setting
- Add ACPI support for determining IRQ (Hopefully fallsback to old code
on machines without acpi.psd)
- Various tidyups
- Bump version to 1.9.2 (1.9.1 was used for internal test versions)
Thanks to all those testers who have provided feedback on the 1.9.x
releases that are based on ALSA 1.0.16!!!
All feedback is greatly appreciated, particularly any improvements or
deteriorations compared with Uniaud 1.1.4
