xwax 0.5 is now available: http://www.xwax.co.uk/

xwax is open-source vinyl emulation software for Linux. It allows DJs and 
turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC 
and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded 

It's designed for both beat mixing and scratch mixing. Needle drops, pitch 
changes, scratching, spinbacks and rewinds are all supported, and feel 
just like the audio is pressed onto the vinyl itself.

The major changes between v0.4 and v0.5:

* Rewritten timecode decoder with improved resolution and accuracy
* Timecode support for MixVibes vinyls
* JACK audio device support
* Configurable sample rates
