This package provides the libffado shared library that
provides a unified programming interface to configure and
use all supported devices. Currently this library is used
by the 'firewire' backends of the jack audio connection kit
sound server. This backend provides audio and midi support,
and is available in jackd. Access to the device internal
configuration (e,g, internal mixer) is exposed using the
ffado-dbus-server daemon. This daemon exposes the
configurable parameters of all detected devices through
DBUS. The ffadomixer application in support/mixer presents
a GUI to control these parameters (only for officially
supported devices).

- Upstream changes:
* Fix some python syntax which was not compatible with python3.
These were missed during the preparation of FFADO 2.4.0.
* Modify the SCons build system to allow for scons running under
* Merge distribution patches provided by package maintainers.
* Address some difficulties experienced by package maintainers
when compiling FFADO.
* Improve the output of ffado-diag.
2018-10-21 -
- byteswap.patch: ensure byte swap macros are available for all components
2018-08-17 -
- Add reproducible.patch to always build with SSE2,
independent of build system CPU (boo#1100677)
2018-02-08 -
- Update to release 2.4.0 and fix build against glibc-2.27
see boo#1079938.
- Removed patches fixed upstream:
ffado_SConstruct_powerpc_update.patch and sigev.patch.
- Rebased libffado-SConstruct-py3.patch partially fixed upstream.
- Added ffado-nosys.patch for missing import sys in SConstruct.
- Rebased ffado-gcc6.patch, partially fixed upstream.
- Upstream changes:
* Numerous build system and code improvements to support
architectures such as MIPS, x32 and various PowerPC flavours.
* A large number of fixes for newer versions of gcc
(particularly versions 6 and 7).
* Initial support for the optional TCO module of the
RME Fireface-800.
* Expanded ffado-mixer support for the Phase88 device.
* Initial work to make ffado-mixer compatible with
* Start work towards compatibility with scons3.
2017-12-04 -
- Extend libffado-SConstruct-py3.patch: convert more of the build
tools to python3. This allows us not to pull a different version
of python into buildroot than is not already used by SCons.
2017-11-24 -
- Added conditional for libffado-SConstruct-py3.patch to only apply
if scons built with python 3.
2017-11-23 -
- Fix building with python3 scons, add libffado-SConstruct-py3.patch
2017-07-31 -
- sigev.patch: add missing header to define SIGEV_THREAD
2017-04-12 -
- Modify libffado-date_time.patch to allow reproducible builds.
2017-03-31 -
- Update to 2.3.0
- Fix gcc7 errors with -fpermissive see boo#1030245
- Removed obsolete udev macro definition
- Rebased ffado_SConstruct_powerpc_update.patch and
- Duplicated %build scons statement in %install to prevent a
complete rebuild of the package.
- Upstream changes:
* Configuration entries added for additional devices which work
with the generic support layer (PreSonus Studiolive 32.4.2,
Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2, ICON FireXon, Onyx Blackbird and
the new Onyx 1640i, among others).
* Support added for the newer Focusrite Saffire Pro 26.
* Improved build support for various downstream consumers.
* Better routing for selected Saffire devices and the Firestudio
* Significant cleanup and refinement of the M-Audio and Yamaha
* Compilation fixes for recent versions of gcc.
* Recover from dead streams without causing jackd to shut down.
