- install legacy provides for openal again. Some packages still rely
  on it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Jan  8 12:31:06 UTC 2013 - reddwarf@opensuse.org

- The devel package requires libopenal1, not openal-soft

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Jan  7 20:38:56 UTC 2013 - joop.boonen@opensuse.org

- Fixed SLES build 
- Removed Requirements that are resolved automatically

Fri Dec  7 14:06:32 UTC 2012 - lnussel@suse.de

- update to new version 1.15
  - Fixed device enumeration with the OSS backend.
  - Reorganized internal mixing logic, so unneeded steps can potentially be skipped for better performance.
  - Removed the lookup table for calculating the mixing pans. The panning is now calculated directly for better precision.
  - Improved the panning of stereo source channels when using stereo output.
  - Improved source filter quality on send paths.
  - Added a config option to allow PulseAudio to move streams between devices.
  - Currently disabled by default, as the device specifier does not properly update.
  - The PulseAudio backend will now attempt to spawn a server by default.
  - Added a workaround for a DirectSound bug relating to float32 output.
  - Added SSE-based mixers, for HRTF and non-HRTF mixing.
  - SSE can be detected at run-time, and be disabled as needed.
  - Added support for the new AL_SOFT_source_latency extension.
  - Currently, the PulseAudio, ALSA, and MMDevAPI backends provide proper latency information.
  - Improved ALSA capture by avoiding an extra buffer when using sizes supported by the underlying device.
  - Improved the makehrtf utility to support new options and input formats.
  - Modified the CFLAGS declared in the pkg-config file so the "AL/" portion of the header includes can optionally be omitted.
  - Added a couple example code programs to show how to apply reverb, and retrieve latency.
  - The configuration sample is now installed into the share/openal/ directory instead of /etc/openal.
  - Note, /etc/openal/alsoft.conf is still used to read the configuration like before.
  - The configuration sample now gets installed by default.
- undo upstream change to auto spawn pulseaudio (openal-no-autospawn.diff)

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 27 17:18:44 UTC 2012 - cfarrell@suse.com

Tue Jun 26 06:50:08 UTC 2012 - lnussel@suse.de

- new version 1.14
    * Improved multi-threaded efficiency, relying less on a "big" mutex in favor of rw-locks and atomic operations where possible.
    * Added support for HRTF-based mixing. Stereo output only. The default built-in data set only supports 44100hz playback. See the new hrtf.txt for more information.
    * Added CMake options to cause a configuration error if the wanted backends aren't available.
    * Modified backends so that only one is used at a time (for each playback and capture), to avoid device ownership conflicts.
    * Fixed enumeration in certain backends to not list a default device, when the default device is enumerated normally anyway (eg, with DirectSound and PulseAudio).
    * Improved device naming to more closely match the names given by the backends.
    * Fixed handling of NaN values for float and double buffer samples.
    * Added a new efx-presets.h header to define useful reverb presets for EFX.
    * Added support for the ALC_EXT_DEDICATED extension.
    * Fixed alc.h to include ALC_ENUMERATE_ALL_EXT enums, like other systems.
    * Added support for the new AL_SOFT_buffer_samples, AL_SOFT_direct_channels, and ALC_SOFT_loopback extensions.
    * Provided an env-var.txt to describe the available options set through environment variables.
    * Fixed the source cone angle properties to work with the full 0-to-360 range as intended.
    * An env var option is provided to restore the old buggy behavior for apps that need it.
    * Added an example program that streams sound using ffmpeg.
    * Added a utility to make HRTF data files from the KEMAR diffuse and compact data sets.
- removed rpmlintrc in favor of a lecacy exception in rpmlint itself

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Feb 21 07:05:50 UTC 2011 - lnussel@suse.de

- new version 1.13

    * Duplication of stereo sources (onto side- and rear-channels) in now enabled by default.
      This can still be disabled via alsoft.conf.
    * Support for the new AL_SOFT_loop_points and AL_SOFT_buffer_sub_data extensions.
    * Added the ability to redirect log output to a file, by setting the ALSOFT_LOGFILE environment variable.
    * Improved invalid parameter checks.
    * Better checks against integer overflows when allocating buffer storage.
    * Internal mixer support for 8-, 16-, and 32-bit input formats, improving memory consumption by not converting them all to 32-bit.
    * Improved device-change handling with the PulseAudio backend.
    * All available PulseAudio devices are now enumerated with ALC_ENUMERATE_ALL_EXT.
    * PulseAudio devices again use the periods and period_size config options.
    * Improved stability when PortAudio is enabled.
      The library tends to cause a crash when it's unloaded and reloaded.
    * Added a WaveOut backend for Windows.
    * Added a cubic resampler to replace the cosine resampler.
    * Increased the maximum number of source auxiliary sends to 4, and changed the default to 1.
    * Massive internal changes to the mixer and buffer loading code, designed for future improvements for allowable input and output formats.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Mar 30 08:06:02 UTC 2010 - lnussel@suse.de

- new version 1.12.854
    * Fixed playback when the PulseAudio buffer is calculated to be more than 64KB.
    * Restored compatibility with some older PulseAudio libs.
    * Alternative buffer sizing for PulseAudio, specified using a new config option.
    * Improved buffer size calculations, to prevent drastic latency changes when certain properties (such as ALC_FREQUENCY) are modified.
    * Added capture support for the PortAudio backend.
    * Support for PortAudio under Windows.
    * Added support for the format extensions AL_EXT_MULAW, AL_EXT_MULAW_MCFORMATS, and AL_EXT_DOUBLE.

- new version 1.11.753
    * Fixed compatibility with newer PulseAudio libs
    * The PulseAudio backend will now be tried first, when available
    * Fixed a crash with the echo effect
    * Configurable resampler, supporting point, linear (default), and
      cosine methods
    * Improved reverb, which now supports the Modulation and Echo
      properties
    * The alsoft/.conf/.ini/rc drivers config option now allows unnamed
      backends to remain available, by ending the device list with a
      comma (,)
    * PulseAudio playback will try to use an output frequency and
      channel format that best matches the default sink If the sink
      device is configured for 5.1 output at 48khz, for example, OpenAL
      Soft will automatically use 5.1 output at 48khz, unless overridden
      in the config file.
    * Multi-channel sounds are now passed through the auxiliary sends
      Although they are down-mixed to mono, losing channel separation.
    * Fixed playback when creating a second context from a device
    * Added a new config option to enable real-time priority when mixing
      for certain backends (ALSA, OSS, Solaris, and DirectSound)
    * Buffers now store 32-bit float sample data internally, to retain
      32-bit sample accuracy
    * Added a new head-dampening config option, for mono and stereo
      playback This slightly filters sounds coming from behind, allowing
      for some subtle differences between front and back sound sources.
    * Added an option to allow spawning the PulseAudio server on demand
    * Support for the new AL_EXT_source_distance_model extension

    * Fixed surround sound channel ordering for PulseAudio playback
    * Fixed 7.1 output
    * Fixed potential crash when setting an AL_EFFECT_NULL effect on
      an auxiliary effect slot
    * Backend libraries are now loaded and released as needed
      In particular, this allows for backends to be added and
      removed at runtime when their corresponding libraries are
      installed and uninstalled (provided support for those backends
      was compiled in). An active backend will remain available as
      long as its in use.
    * Support for multiple contexts per device
    * Fixed possible ghost references on buffers and auxiliary
      slots, if they're attached to sources that are forcibly
      deleted on context destruction
