    Well, iterative development has historically "proven" to catch more use cases than waterfall-like processes do in many other areas of software... I'm not sure I see why Wine sound should be an exception to the trend. Moreover git branches make rewriting, replacing and removing code easy when it doesn't end up quite the way you like it, and while getting it all right the first time would be neater it's not always that simple. There's no need to keep binary compatibility in something as monolithic as Wine, is there?

    Could someone describe how the new system works, please? I'm curious and I can't find any blog posts about it. I don't know how Windows 7 do things, so the reference goes straight over my head.

    No jack no party, I will *NEVER* upgrade because I need professional-grade audio with wineasio for zero latency VSTs.

    Wonder if they plan on finally supporting multichannel audio as well?

    Default no network audio support now too

    so, there were no Pulse support and now there is no NAS and audio via network support is completely gone. and i can forget about outputting sounds from laptop to nearest machine with good speakers, great.

    I was under the impression that with mmdevapi there would be pulse audio? What happened?

    One of the bigger annoyances with wine is that it lacks pulse.
