Within the last few days the official website for the ALSA project (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) website received an overhaul. The ALSA project website is now Wiki-based with a brand new appearance. The supported sound card matrix is also now on the Wiki and is still laid out by manufacturer but with a new format. The latest version of the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture remains at 1.0.14, but the ALSA 1.0.15 release candidates will hopefully begin soon.
