Name        : jack_capture
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.9.40
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://www.musix.org.ar/wiki/index.php/Jack_capture
Summary     : Record sound files with JACK
Description :
Jack_capture is a program for recording sound files with JACK. It's default
operation is to capture whatever sound is going out to your speakers into a
file, but it can do a number of other operations as well.

Update Information:

 * Reduced default buffering time from 10 to 4 seconds. (Buffering time can
probably safely be set below 1 second with the new buffer monitor thread)   *
Also increase buffer when more than 1/4 of the buffer is used and the unused
buffer time is less than 5 seconds. (This in addition to always increase buffer
when more than half of it is used)   * Fixed console update and keyboard
handling.   * Use a new dedicated high-priority SCHED_OTHER thread to monitor
buffer status. Buffer status was previously only checked in the disk thread, but
since the disk thread might stall for longer periods, it is not an ideal place
to do this.   * Replaced the --help output with a much simpler text, making it
clearer that extra options are normally not needed. Also added the --advanced-
options option, which displays the contents of the old --help option.   * Fix
--help a bit   * Print warning in case nice value in /etc/security/limits.conf
is set to -10 instead of -20.   * Check whether sndfile supports ogg during
compilation. (Avoid having to edit the Makefile when using an older version of
sndfile)   * Better screen clean-up at shutdown. (Not working very well yet,
maybe ncurses should be used instead of manually sending escape sequences?)   *
Add support for OGG (requires sndlib>=1.0.18)   * Check if file format is
supported by sndlib before creating file
