Jack OS X v0.5 released


The Jack OS X team have released a new version of Jack OS X (Formerly Jack Tools), a Mac OS X implementation of the Jack Audio Connection Kit (Jack).

This new version includes several improvements and new features:

  • New, more CPU-efficient CoreAudio driver.
  • New NetJack UDP module for JackPilot, to allow for Jack audio connections over a network (including Ethernet, Airport, IP over Firewire).
  • Workaround for "the iTunes problem", in which some applications (like iTunes) are dropped from the Connections Manager window when they stop actively sending audio, thus destroying any connections already established with that application. The workaround restores the connection state of the application in question when the audio stream is resumed.
  • Various Jack Audio Router (JAR) bug fixes.
  • New Jack VST and AU plugin design; AU plugin now passes current Apple AU validation test.
  • Developer toolset added, which allows for both "Apple" and "Unix" approaches to developing Jack native applications on Mac OS X.
  • Inclusion of step-by-step illustrated examples in documentation.
  • Italian and French localization of JackPilot.
