     232Notes for end users
     233Automatically switch Bluetooth profile when using VoIP applications
     235Bluetooth headsets typically support both the A2DP profile, which is suitable for music, and the HSP profile, which is suitable for telephony use cases. module-bluetooth-policy will now automatically switch the profile of a Bluetooth headset from A2DP to HSP/HFP when an application creates a recording stream with property media.role=phone (telephony applications should set that property for their streams). When the stream goes away, the profile gets restored back to A2DP. This way the user doesn't have to manually switch the profiles when starting and stopping a call. This behaviour can be disabled by giving argument auto_switch=false to module-bluetooth-policy.
     236New module for prioritizing passthrough streams (module-allow-passthrough)
     238Passthrough streams are streams whose content must go completely unaltered from the application to the sound card, and they are mainly used for playing back compressed audio through an S/PDIF connection. When a passthrough stream is playing to a device, no other streams can play at the same time to the same device, and if there's already something playing when a passthrough stream is created, the passthrough stream creation will normally fail. Now we have a new module, called module-allow-passthrough, which will give higher priority to passthrough streams, so that if there are other streams playing when a passthrough stream is created, those other streams will be moved out of the way to a dummy device.
     239Fixed hotplugging support for USB surround sound cards
     241A long-standing bug that prevented PulseAudio from using any hotplugged USB surround sound cards has been fixed.
     242Separate volumes for Bluetooth A2DP and HSP profiles
     244The Bluetooth sink and source names are now different depending on whether the active profile is A2DP or HSP. This allows PulseAudio to store different volumes for A2DP and HSP. Due to different mechanisms for implementing volume control between the profiles, trying to use the same volume value in PulseAudio doesn't actually result in the same perceived volume, so it's better not to try to use the same volume.
     246As an unfortunate transition effect, volumes saved earlier with an older PulseAudio version won't have effect in the new PulseAudio version, so all Bluetooth devices will have their volume reset to the default value when running the new PulseAudio version for the first time.
     248This only affects BlueZ 5 users. The same change was done already earlier for PulseAudio's BlueZ 4 code.
     249memfd-based shared memory mechanism enabled by default
     251The memfd-based shared memory mechanism that was implemented in 9.0 is now enabled by default. This shouldn't cause any user-visible changes in behaviour, except if you're using the Firejail sandboxing software, which doesn't work with PulseAudio's old shared memory mechanism.
     253If desired, the feature can still be disabled by setting "enable-memfd = no" either in daemon.conf (for disabling it at the server side) or in client.conf (for disabling it at the client side).
     254Removed module-xenpv-sink
     256module-xenpv-sink was removed, because it's probably not used by anyone. If you use it, please let us know.
     257Notes for packagers
     258Dropped dependency to json-c
     260libpulse previously used json-c internally, which forced applications to link to json-c too. That caused crashing in some GLib applications, because json-c and json-glib both use the same name for some functions. To solve this, we implemented the necessary JSON functionality directly in libpulse, so we don't depend on json-c any more.
     261When using systemd to start PulseAudio, pulseaudio.socket is always started first
     263The pulseaudio.service unit now depends on pulseaudio.socket, meaning that before systemd starts PulseAudio, it will always first set up the socket. This is done to avoid confusing behaviour in certain corner cases (see the comments in pulseaudio.service for a more detailed explanation).
     264Compatibility with OpenSSL 1.1.0
     266OpenSSL, which is used by module-raop-sink, broke backwards compatibility in the 1.1.0 release. PulseAudio now supports both 1.1.0 and older versions.
     267Clarified qpaeq license
     269Most of PulseAudio is licensed under LGPL, but the "qpaeq" equalizer GUI is licensed under AGPL. That hasn't previously been mentioned anywhere else than in the qpaeq source code itself. Therefore, distributions that tag their packages with license information have likely used incorrect information. The license of qpaeq hasn't changed, but the use of AGPL is now correctly noted in the top-level LICENSE file.
