“Jack,” an intermediary piece of software common on Linux that allows audio programs to communicate with an operating system, shows promise as a way to allow some very credible audio programs such as the QTractor digital audio workstation(and possibly, many other audio apps) to be brought to Haiku.
There’s a movement underway to try and port Jack to Haiku, and I’m all for it. A fund has been set up, and already $200 in bounty commitments have been made. More would be welcome, and of course, we need someone who can get Jack all polished and shiny and working great in Haiku.
If you would like to join forces with this effort, please contact me (Dane) at bayland daw’t n et. Let’s go for this! It could open up some really exciting possibilities.
